Last year, a year-old chihuahua mix named Chunky was found on the brink of death. After he was kidnapped by four teenagers, the poor pup had been subjected to some of the cruelest torture imaginable. They kicked and beat Chunky until his legs were broken. Then they lit his face on fire with an aerosol can and a lighter. Finally, they dumped him in a landfill.
Now, after finally being rescued, Chunky is inspiring people all over the world to make a stand against animal cruelty.

“This was the most disturbing case I have ever dealt with–by an absolute mile,” said Caroline Doe, an RSPCA inspector. “The defendants may have been young and confessed to being under the influence of drugs, but the cruelty they inflicted on this poor dog was extreme, barbaric, and inexcusable.”

At last, after weeks of intensive care and attention, Chunky was returned to his owners.

Now, people are hoping his story inspires change and awareness. The law prevents the perpetrators of this crime from owning a pet for five years, though most say this is too short.

Either way, it’s remarkable what Chunky was able to endure and recover from. He’s an inspiration to us all!



How anyone could ever do that sort of thing to another living creature is beyond us. Thank goodness Chunky is okay and already proving he’s a fighter!
