He was rushed to the Cincinnati SPCA, where he is currently being nursed back to health. The poor puppy suffered with two broken legs and bruised lungs. One of the leg injuries is so bad that the leg may need to be amputated.
Police believe that the pup was stuffed into the garbage bag, thrown out of a moving car, and was then ran over.
“It speaks to the level of cruelty and there are different levels to cruelty in animal cases — of neglect and abuse — but this is very blatant. This is very intentional,” Nyketa Gaffney of the CSPSCA told WLWT5.
They decided to name this sweet pup ‘Harlan.’ Despite everything he has gone through, he is still very friendly and happy.
Once his injuries are completely healed and his weight is back up, he will be available for adoption.
Police are still looking for information that could lead to the monster who did this to Harlan. Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Fath at 513-728-3182 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
