Once it was discovered by a passing stranger, the little tiny dog only a few pounds in weight was thought originally to be a brown terrier, but after getting a bath (the poor thing was covered in dirt and feces), it was revealed that it was a young Maltese puppy.
Special place in hell, people. Special place in hell.
This all happened in Louisville, Kentucky. The Humane Society is offering a reward for information about the jerks that did this.
The video below shows this little guy after being cleaned up and treated by vets. What a cutie! Hope he finds a great home.
