That is sickening. Does this puppy have a home to be loved in when he recovers. . I would love to be the one to give him a loving family and home to grow old with. He is precious. I hope he is os ok

These teenagers need to be named and shamed,they are both old enough to know right from wrong, what they have done is inexcusable

It’s heartbreaking. I’d be more than happy to give this little one a home if required. He would never know pain and suffering again and only know love and protection.

They’ll get off with nothing. Then they will murder a human later and everyone will say no one saw it coming

I think they should be SHAMED as well, be forced to wear a sign around their necks 24/7 for a year or more, and have the same thing done to them! Poor little baby puppy! This is DISGUSTING behavior, and who knows what these young men will graduate to next!

One of the officers took the puppy to Ebenezer Animal Hospital for treatment to its wounds. Veterinarians told police 18 BB pellets were lodged in the dog’s skin and muscle.
