Tortured by a gang of punks and suffering from serious burns caused by acid, hot oils and even stab wounds, a dog once tormented has found love and safety in the care of a Newport News Firefighter.

Jerry Reed says that once Ringo is fully healed he intends to enroll him in obedience school and have him trained as a therapy dog. He’s hoping they can eventually visit children’s hospitals, schools, and other institutions in need of four legged therapy. Reed said he considers Ringo a miracle puppy.
