Firefighter Adopts Abused Dog

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.

  2. Poor puppy! I can’t believe the kids that did this haven’t been caught. I’m glad the firefighter is adopting him.

  3. People who torture animals are sociopaths and dangerous. I hope that they catch whoever did this. Sick.

    I’m happy that this family is adopting this puppy. It’s nice that he had a happy ending.
