Quincy: Dog Found with “Sadistic” Abuse

Quincy Police, along with District Attorney Michael Morrissey and the Animal Rescue League of Boston, want to find out who is responsible for the gruesome abuse of “Puppy Doe”, a one year old dog found in Quincy at the end of August.

She was found in the vicinity of Carrolls Lane in Quincy, near the Whitwell Street Playground and Quincy Medical Center weighing half of what a dog of her size should weigh. Veterinarians were not able to save Puppy Doe after she was found. They say she had been beaten and starved, along with some other disturbing discoveries.

Morrissey called it “sadistic cruelty” and says it’s likely this case could involve other animals or even people. He says he wants anyone in eastern Massachusetts who recognizes the dog to contact authorities.

Anyone with information about Puppy Doe should call the Animal Rescue League of Boston, Law Enforcement Dept., 617-226-5610, email them at cruelty@arlboston.org, or call the Quincy Police Det. Thomas Pepdjonovich at 617-745-5774.
