It's a death sentence for any dog-- except Petey.

The Laguna Madre Humane Society has already lined up a foster family to care for Petey once he's medically cleared.

Roxanne is glad to hear Petey has not only survived the barbaric attack but will hopefully live a better life.

"I'm extremely happy," she said.

It's a new leash on life thanks to people who care.

Anyone who would like to donate money to the Laguna Madre Humane Society, which specializes in rescuing abused and neglected animals, can contact (956) 943-3888.

Brownsville police are looking for information related to the alleged animal abuse.

Tipsters should call their Crime Stoppers line at 956-546-TIPS.

The a**holes were probably trying to make him mean. Thankfully, kind people stepped in, and he can show people what pit bulls are truly supposed to be like!

I find the abuse i have been reading about involving pitbulls to be extremely upsetting-i watched the video,this dog did go through hell,just hope he now has a chance at a peaceful life-i saw examples of hatred against this breed when our local paper ran a story of a couple of pitbulls that were ordered to be eutanised,there was a comment section and i witnessed some very hateful postings about the breed,i was online on and off for hours defending pitbulls-these animals can be wonderful pets,all dogs can go bad depending on how they are raised,trained and taken care of-we should never blame the breed!

Sadistic bastards who do these evil things to animals that cannot defend themselves should be tortured to death. Their death must be as agonising as possible and no mercy whatsoever shown to them. They don't deserve it. One more sickening so called human less on this earth.

Nothing or no-one can justfiy the abuse and torture inflicted onto this poor dog. The fact that he appears so gentle and loving is testiment to his forgiving nature. Let's all hope that he soon finds a decent, loving, caring home of his own, its nothing less than he deserves. Shame on the low-life pieces of human garbage who treated this dog in such a horrific manner.
