Tortured Stolen Dog Recovers and Reunites with Loving Owners

Four underage males stole and tortured a Chihuahua mix. However, after enduring unimaginable abuse the dog was saved, recovered and reunited with his owners.

Chunky, a Chihuahua mix from England, was stolen from his home in late October by four underage males. The dog endured days of torture and was dumped by abusers, believing the dog was dead. However, the tiny dog clung to life and was found alive by RSPCA rescuers. They saved, nursed back to health, and reunited him with his owners. The teenage animal abusers faced a judge and received punishment.

Itv reports the dog snatchers and abusers ranged in ages from 15 to 16 years old. They held the dog for several days, fed him drugs, punched, kicked, set him on fire, and broke the dog’s leg and neck. After the torture, the criminals believed the dog was dead and tossed him as garbage in Margate, England.

Once found, the dog was rushed to local veterinarians who examined him. Experts say the abuse Chunky endured lasted about six days, but the damage caused took weeks to undo.

“This was the most disturbing case I have ever dealt with – by an absolute mile,” said RSPCA inspector Caroline Doe. “The defendants may have been young and confessed to being under the influence of drugs but the cruelty they inflicted on this poor dog was extreme, barbaric and inexcusable.”

All four teenagers pleaded guilty. Their sentence included getting banned from owning a pet for five years, placed under probation for the next 12 months, and paying fines from $700 to $9,000.

As for Chunky, after weeks of intensive care and rehabilitation, he is back to normal and in the arms of his owners – twin sisters Lisa-Marie and Bonnie-Lee Fittall. Despite the unimaginable pain and abuse the dog experienced during his hell on earth days, he is as happy and friendly as ever.

      1. I hope so. Feed them drugs or alcohol and break their legs. The punishment doesn’t equal the crime. Never let them own an animal

    1. The Animal Defense league in California is working really hard, with real attorneys, to increase these sentences for psychopaths like this. And it is true, most serial killers start out by torturing and killing small animals. I just don’t get it. I don’t consider myself a violent person but if I came across people like this hurting any any innocent animal I would hurt them I would be so enraged. Baseball bat to the face comes to mind

  1. There actions does not fit the time that they received and has not been justify they should have been banned for life owning any animal. They should have been giving years, plus house arrest because they need to be monitor closely. Just think if anyone does this to an animal (helpless) just think what they would do to an child. I believe that they have done this before,they are nothing but monster.

    1. I feel the same way. As long as there is nasty greedy humans. Animal cruelty and abuse will continue …they need to kill Animal abusers.

  2. WTH is wrong with people today! Make kids accountable for their actions! These four will move on to people next! Spare the rod spoil the child, that’s the problem today!

  3. Hey I have a great idea ..let’s do to them what they did yo this poor unsuspecting pup..Gosh I hope their parents are proud of them..Great job raising a bunch of PUNKS..

  4. Second time today I have seen such abuse……earlier some one posted a video of a puppy being abused while recorded by a boys friend. These people should be prosecuted……and although I am not a violent person in these cases I make an exception, SHOW these sick abusers what it feels like to be helpless, and abused and scared. Beat their butt back!!!!!!!!! Than stick them in a cell to think about what they have done.

  5. Are you kidding me!!!!!! They should be thrown in jail! The punishment was not tough enough.
    If this was my dog….. I’d be in jail for what I would do to those guys!!!!! I can’t take this!! Im beyond angry!!! I only pray that there’s a perfect place in hell for all animal abusers.

  6. Aww, saddens me he was tortured so, but also very happy to hear he has been reunited with his family & doing well. Best wishes for a very happy & healthy future to this sweet boy.

  7. What kind of creature(s) that pass for human do this? Hope they find the dung that did this and fine them tens of thousands for stealing a family member and then decades of jail time for the torture, abuse, and attempted murder.

  8. OMG what is he– is wrong with people.. this is horrific … God love this dear lil one and I pray for a great recovery for her .. and for the ones that did it their day willl come!!!

  9. That’s all they got? They won’t be around in 5 years to own a pet. They’ll be in prison for the murder of a person when they step up their game. Horrible. If that was my dog….I would have to plead guilty to what i would do to them.

  10. Poor chunky, I have the words to describe the scum and what I would do to them but it’s way too graphic and disturbing, they deserve nothing less ??
