Her entire back side is covered in shrapnel from being shot. We are not talking about one shot from one gun. She was hit with a shot gun. She was hit with at least two bullets from most likely a pistol. Then she was hit with over 20 pellets or bee bees.

When a photo of a dog, obviously unable to use her hind legs, abandoned by the side of the road, went viral online, a small group of local dog lovers and rescuers banded together to save her life. They assumed the poor soul had been hit by a car.

The visit to the vet’s, that followed, revealed something a lot more sinister. To evaluate the severity of the potential spinal surgery suffered, the vets took an X-ray, and what they saw, shocked everyone.

"Her entire back side is covered in shrapnel from being shot. We are not talking about one shot from one gun. She was hit with a shot gun. She was hit with at least two bullets from most likely a pistol. Then she was hit with over 20 pellets or bee bees from a pellet gun. These bullets ripped through her spinal cord and are the reason she can not walk,” informs visitors Candy’s, which is the poor pooch’s new name, recently started Facebook page.

Donations have started pouring in to Candy’s fundraising site and the local news in Corpus Christi, Texas has also picked up her story.

A wheelchair is being fitted for Candy to use, and her independent rescuers are looking for a special needs rescue group who would be willing to help them find her a permanent home. Those who can help are asked to contact them via the Facebook page.

And this is precisely why I keep saying that the same needs to be done to them. This poor dog was absolutely defenceless, - and you need to be pretty sick and despicable to do something like this. What is the law going to do? Hence I say, animal activists need to hold their own courts and then decide what gruesome death would be befitting for such a filthy sob!

Noted....this dangerous perpetrator needs to be apprehended before he/she does any more damage to the innocent and then used for target practice. Thanks Michelle for sharing.

Again I'm wondering what sick evil cruel bastards live on earth! I'm appalled.
All such bastards should rot in hell.
Hope and wish that this poor lovely dog finds a beloved home.

They better find out who did this, because a thousand bucks says, they have done more, the same or worse. They are a ticking time bomb, this poor dog, is a warning. Someone loving, please adopt this poor baby. Much luv 2 the rescuers.
