Teen Boys Tried to Drown Shih Tzu in Canal By Tying Bricks to Its Legs
A 3-year-old Shih Tzu survived a brutal attack on Saturday by a gang of teenage boys thanks to a vigilant passerby. According to WSVN, Carlos Torres witnessed a group of boys trying to drown the dog in a canal in Miami Lakes when he jumped in to save it. The dog required surgery that cost $1500 after the attack, and animal advocates are trying to raise the funds.
"That's when I ran the light, stopped and noticed there was a dog inside the bag," Torres said. "I couldn't believe what they were doing, so I threw myself inside the canal, took the dog out, removed her out of the bag and removed the bricks from the dog."
