Last week we told you about a lovely Lab mix (now named Hope!) that surveillance video captured as she was dumped by the side of the road in a suburb of Springfield, MO.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office posted to their Facebook page that the woman believed responsible was arrested on July 13.

The video showed a woman letting her dog out of her car, shutting the door and speeding away. One posted by the camera’s owner, it quickly went viral.

She was arrested for animal neglect and abandonment, a class C misdemeanor.

The dog had severe burns on her paws after running on the hot pavement until she was found.

  1. How sad it’s only a Class C misdemeanor. Make her run on the hot pavement barefoot.
    Hope is so much better off and her pain is sure to be rewarded with a human who will love her!

  2. I feel that any time an Animal or a Child is ABUSED they should be treated just the same,Neither of them can/are able to Protect/Defend Themselves!!!
    With this being said I also feel that the ABUSER DESERVES THE VERY SAME TREATMENT THAT THEY DISHED OUT, see just how much they like it and give them something to think about for a Long Long Time Too…
    SO SHE NEED TO BE RUN DOWN THE HOT BUBBLING ASPHALT (BAREFOOT) FOR AT LEAST 1/2 -1 MILE (EVEN THOUGH “HOPE” RAN 3 MILES) THEN BE SURE THAT SHE STAY OUT IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY FOR AS MANY HOURS AS “HOPE” DID ( AND SHE NOT GET ANY WATER JUST LIKE “POOR HOPE” DID NOT HAVE THE ENTIRE TIME )!!!
    LAST BUT NOT LEAST — THIS SORRY THING OF A HUMAN BEING ( NEVER EVER BE ALLOW TO HAVE/OWN/TAKE CARE OF/ HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANOTHER ANIMAL NO MATTER WHO IT BELONGS TO IN HER LIFETIME.

  3. I personally think what she did was sick, cruel and beyond insane dogs aren’t just dogs to some of us but yet our very own children. I personally speak to my babies like they are cause they are, they have their own car seat possibly even more clothes than I do. They are my heart, my world. I will never for the life of me understand what would make someone commit such a god awful cruel act. I hope she gets the help she plainly needs. I am so glad justice will be done for hope! She sure has a lot of us rooting for her and loving her!
