The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested three people in connection to a horrifying animal abuse case.

The dog, named Buddy, was found dragging himself in the pouring rain in a mobile home park in Slidell, Louisiana, with both of his hind legs cut off.

He was thankfully found and rushed to the vet, who determined that someone sawed off Buddy’s legs intentionally, since the bone that’s exposed is a clean cut.

According to authorities, Buddy was shot a few months ago, and since his owners didn’t get proper medical care, his back legs became paralyzed and he was unable to walk.

Buddy’s owners, a 50-year-old woman and her 17-year-old daughter, claimed that the dog’s legs ‘fell off after they bandaged them too tight,’ but the vet stuck with his belief that his legs were intentionally sawed off.

 

The teen was arrested for aggravated cruelty to animals and booked into a juvenile detention center, after police held her accountable for the dog’s condition. Her mother was also arrested for failing to get the dog proper medical care, and was released on a summons.

A friend of the teen, who is also 17 years old, admitted to abandoning the dying dog at the mobile home park and has also been arrested for cruelty to animals, but has since been released.

Buddy is expected to be OK and has undergone surgeries and blood transfusions. He will soon receive another surgery to amputate what is left of his tail.

Despite everything he’s been through, he is still such a sweet and friendly pup with so much love to give!

Eventually, they plan on getting a custom wheelchair made for him so he will be able to walk around with ease.
