It's lucky that the family can manage to save a dog after the floods in Colorado.

I can't believe the insanity going on with people. Trooper survived!!! And now he will have a forever home in Colorado with people who understand his breed - he appears to have overcome his trauma without fear to humans. Wishing you, Trooper, and your new family all the best!!

Bless Trooper, all those who rescued and helped him, and the wonderful people who adopted this beautiful soul. May he be forever safe, cherished and loved in his new forever home. As for the person(s) who did this to him - may Karma be swift, severe, and unrelenting.

Once again I am appalled at people's cruelty to animals, but deeply heartened by the pure spirit of an animal who has so suffered at human hands. Good luck in your new home, Trooper!

Poor Pup he is just beautiful, don't know how anyone can do this to a dog. Its disgusting and I hope this guy is found. Who knows walk the dog around he maybe able to point out the person who did it to him. You will be able to see the angry in the pups eyes.

A person like this needs to be punished the fullest extent of the law and worse.

I'm so glad to hear that Trooper is doing so well despite the evil person who committed such a terrible crime to him! I'm sure that karma will catch up with this person and he will get what he deserves! But, I'm so glad to hear that amazing Trooper will now be going to a loving home where he will really be appreciated and cared for! God bless radiant Trooper and his new loving family! Great news about the other pit bull at this rescue being adopted too! Thanks Carrie!
