Adoption Interest Grows For Burned Puppy

A North Carolina puppy found beaten and burned in a park in August has up to 60 people interested in adopting her.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Tuesday that interviews will begin next week to find a home for Susie, a pit-bull mix puppy found with severe second and third-degree burns on most of her body.

Officials at the Guilford County Animal Shelter say they're impressed with how quickly she is recovering after being found in a Greensboro park with burned ears and a broken jaw and teeth.

Veterinarians say Susie will need to be an inside dog and will require sunblock when she's outside.

Officials will conduct interviews and do home visits to narrow down the list. A drawing will likely determine who will adopt her.

    ever who did this to this animal, can also do it to a human,because they have no heart!

    The people who have done this should be severed of all four of their limbs then beaten with a baseball bat in the ribs until internal bleeding causes them to pass. Worthless as such should be tortured in the worst possible way. Beating something that can't do anything about it. I WOULD LOVE TO MEET WHOEVER DID THIS IN PERSON!!

    I don't care what breed it is YOU don't do this to any animal. That person who did this needs to have it done to him.

    I have never been a big fan of the Pitt Bull breed but I can not believe that any person could be so cruel. The laws should be changed because people that do this sort of thing are just warming up to make the move to people. What ever the courts would do to a person for burning another person should be the same for some one that does this to an animal.

    That poor dog. I hope the who ever is lucky enough to have this wonderful dog is really loving to this preciious creature that God put on this earth. I also hope that who did this to this animal is put away. If that person did it to one animal you know he's done it to others.

    ditto rick! It's disgusting that even if they caught the people responsible for this horrible abuse, they would not get in much trouble. Whoever did this should have the same done to them, and eye for an eye....

    This behavior will continue until our politicians have the courage to make animal abuse a serious FELONY with hard time for convictions. Why is this so difficult to do? Very sad.

    What a sick person that would hurt such a precious creature. I hope the rest of her life is filled with happiness and that her adoptive home does everything to make her happy and safe. I wish I could take her!

    A drawing will likely determine her new home? Um,perhaps rethinking that idea would be in order. If officials are doing home-visits, then go with your gut instinct and narrow down the adoptive families until you get to just one. You've gone this far, keep going to the end.
