I'm glad this story has a happy ending... But I really HATE to see animals abused like this! What is wrong with this world?!
The veterinarians who rescued Buddy the Shih Tzu estimate that he's between 10 and 12-years-old, and that this is likely the first time in his life he's experience love and affection from humans. Buddy is the victim of repeated abuse that basically amounts to torture.
Buddy was rescued after someone found him wrapped in garbage bags, fighting for his life.
