A woman was looking for a pooch to call her own, and she knew she wanted to give a puppy in need an adorable house and get for her family a dog for Christmas. Kelly Benzel came across someone selling a pit bull mix called Rocco, on Facebook on behalf of the dog’s previous parents.
So, she bought the dog for her family and she was sure that he was the right one. But, when they’re on their way to home, Rocco began to smell and Benzel, who could not take the odor any longer, pulled the dog to check what was that.
She then took him to the veterinarian. The vets put bandages on his wound and treated him and then sent him with Benzel to live with his new family. When Benzel got home, she directly called the seller of the dog, who tried to bribe her by saying that Rocco’s previous parents would pay the bills, but she called the authorities anyway.
The dog’s previous parents said that they knew nothing about his injury, as they never took off his harness as he’d try to run away.
The seller and the previous parents were all given a $1,500 signature bond as they were charged with mistreatment of animals/causing death, and give a date in a court to decide what to do about the condition. Watch the video above to have more information.
