Puppy Doe, a juvenile pit bull was rehomed via Craigslist; only to be sent to Hell instead.
In 2013, Kiya was rehomed. She was in fine condition.
A shaken Dr Martha Smith-Blackmore of ARL said the fate of the brindle-colored pit bull named ‘Puppy Doe’ before she was euthanized is “unquestionably and hands-down” the worst case of animal abuse she has ever seen.
Four months after being rehomed, the dog was found with injuries so grave, she had to be euthanized.
Weighing less than half the normal body weight, she was starved, stabbed in the eyes and burned. This is NOT animal abuse this is TORTURE.
A film about Puppy Doe aka Kiya, the young pit bull who was tortured and left for dead after being given away for free on Craigslist.

Puppy Doe: from healthy pitbull to dead pitbull in just four months after being rehomed using Craigslist.

Animal advocates everywhere demand that justice be brought against the perpetrator of this heinous crime described as the worst case of animal abuse the city of Boston has ever seen. As the eyes of an ever-growing community are watching and demanding change, is it time that tolerance for violent crimes against animals comes to an end?
