Growing up is difficult, especially if you don’t have a responsible parent or guardian to guide you. Unfortunately, many people do not fully understand — or live up to — their responsibility to assist defenseless babies of all species in finding their way in this world, according to blog.theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.org.
Due to no fault of their own, two unfortunate Ohio puppies ended up in the care of one such irresponsible keeper. When their owner decided he couldn’t be bothered to care for them any longer, he simply abandoned the young brothers in a nearby park to fend for themselves. They were only three months old at the time.
One of those puppies got away and was later discovered in a neighboring county. The second brother was not so fortunate. This innocent puppy wandered onto the railway tracks and was hit by an oncoming train because he didn’t understand the dangers of being outside. The mishap occurred on the same day the puppy was mysteriously left alone to fend for himself.
The young dog miraculously survived, which is a testament to his resilience, strength, and the quick actions of first responders. The poor creature, on the other hand, did not escape the incident unscathed. Despite surviving emergency surgery, the puppy – named Trooper by the Sheriff’s department, possibly because he’s already been through so much – had lost an eye, his tail, and both hind legs.
“If the juvenile had just taken the dogs to the shelter, Trooper might not have been injured today,” Sheriff Richard Jones said of the puppy’s former owner, who was charged with animal cruelty and abandonment. “I am confident Trooper will find a wonderful forever home, but his poor quality of life could have been avoided if this individual had made a different decision.”
Trooper is currently living with a new foster family, who reports that this playful young pup is healing well and is getting ready to learn to drive a wheel-cart once his stitches come out next week. Meanwhile, Trooper’s forever family is being sought by the Animal Friend’s Humane Society in Hamilton, Ohio. If you believe that is the case, please contact them via their website or Facebook page. Let us work together to find this sweet boy the forever home he deserves!
