Justice for Justice: 4-Month-Old Puppy Set on Fire in Dallas [VIDEO]

If I’ve ever had anything to depend on in my life, it’s my dog. “Man’s best friend” doesn’t even begin to describe the relationship I have with my dog. Big dog, small dog, pit bull, chihuahua — I have a heart for them all. And it’s stories like this one that truly break my heart.

The public is being asked to help identify suspects accused of setting a four-month-old lab-terrier mix puppy on fire in the Pleasant Grove neighborhood in Dallas.

WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas is reporting the puppy was doused with lighter fluid and set on fire at an apartment complex. Witnesses said they saw a group of teen boys attempting to strangle the puppy before setting him on fire. A witness ran over and used a t-shirt to put out the fire before calling for help.

The puppy, named “Justice” after another dog that was set on fire three years ago, suffered second- and third-degree burns on most of his body. One leader of a Dallas animal rights group said he is “cautiously optimistic” Justice will survive.

Anyone with any information can call 214-373-8477. The SPCA added a $5,000 reward for information that brings Justice’s torturers to justice. I can only hope this happens very soon.

A truly heartbreaking story, but if I’ve learned one thing about dogs in my life, it’s that dogs are resilient creatures, and they’ll love until the very end. It looks like Justice is no different.
