Woman Discovers Injured but Alive Bait Dog in Garbage Bag

A California woman found an injured dog inside a garbage bag. Thanks to her, the dog named Gladys is safe.

On November 25, 2014, Karen Herrera from Fontana, Calif., found a white and brown female dog inside a garbage bag tossed on the side of the road. The dog had endured abuse at the hands of her owner prior to getting discarded with the garbage. The dog’s body had multiple bite wounds and patches of missing fur, yet, she had somehow survived the unimaginable and patiently waited on the side of the road for a helping hand.

According to a news release from the Fontana Police Department, Herrera was on an early morning walk when she encountered the injured dog.

“She was there inside the bag. She was scared and cold,” said Herrera. “I patted her on the back of her spine and she started bleeding.”

The Good Samaritan contacted police and waited for officers to come get the injured dog.

The dog has been named Gladys, and authority rushed her to General Dog and Cat Hospital in San Bernardino where she was treated for her injuries. Veterinarians determined she suffers from mange and believe the bite wounds were inflicted because she was probably used as a bait dog while training other larger and stronger dogs fro dog fighting.

Authorities do not know who Gladys’s abusers are, but there is an open investigation and they hope to capture the dog’s abusers.

Glady’s is now recovering at Sunshine Haven Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation and her health has improved significantly. Her mange is clearing up, her bite wounds are healing and she is getting along well with the other dog’s at the center.

Gladys is expected to make a full recovery and once she is 100 percent healed she will be available for adoption.

  4. Several weeks ago I was able to get one of the dogs pictured on Yahoo. She is a Charcoal Grey Pit Bull with a white chest and 4 white paws. She is the sweetest and most adorable dog, she is healing the hole in my heart from my lab who died just before I got Roxie. Thank You Yahoo….

    1. So glad to hear you were able to help Penny. Thank you!. I have a pit just like yours with white paws. I call them her french manicure just like her human mom. 🙂

  5. I hate the people who tortured and abused this poor sweet innocent dog. Why aren’t the laws much strict for animal abuse? The lousy politicians need to do more to protect children and animals. Someone should teach those sadists a good lesson. Laurie Ann Breen

    1. I agree these bas—need to have much stricter penalties. What is wrong with the politicians.. No guts!!

  9. Dog fighting is but a small part of what Californian has turned a blind eye to with its housing of illegals. dog fighting is a problem here in the US. it is a sport in South America, its a culture in Mexico. not even going to discuss how accepted this practice is in the Rap culture. Its horrible, its sub human its what you welcomed into your state.
    Thank you to those who stopped to care.

  10. Thank god this poor dog was found and pleased she has been seen to. These wicked people who used her as a bait dog need to go to hell. They really make my blood boil. How many more dogs have they done this to and how many have suffered.

  16. It broke my heart when I looked into Gladys’ loving and soulful eyes and then saw the horrendous abuse. My mind cannot wrap around the fact that anyone would torture this sweet dog. The only way that I can comprehend and put this abuse into perspective is to remember that many of the devil’s minions walk this earth. A purely evil person had to have done this. I just want to hug Gladys and let her know that she is loved by many. Get well soon Gladys!!!! God Bless. Soon you will be running in the sunshine and playing catch. : )

  17. Precious angel. No animal deserves this. Find the monsters who did this and do the same to them. We need stricter laws against animal abusers and we need to make sure they are strictly enforced. Prayers for this sweet baby to heal quickly and find a loving forever home.
