Man Makes Fun Of Abused Stray Dog. Rescuers Spring To Action!


This is the story of an abused stray dog who overcame hell and landed in heaven. A man’s attempt at a sick joke by snapping a photo of her burned skin and uploading it to Instagram eventually led to the dog’s rescue.

From pauper to king; from rags to riches. With these phrases, one could easily sum up Pumpkin’s existence. An existence that was turned on its head thanks to a horrible Instagram post.

Pumpkin the dog was standing alone by the side of the road. She had been abandoned. Worst, she had been tortured and left for dead.

Pumpkin’s body was burned in places. Her hair matted, her skin in terrible condition.

The body of the abused stray dog was akso used as a bullseye for target practice with a BB gun. “To make her humiliation even more egregious, a man snapped a photo of Pumpkin and posted it on Instagram. The caption: “LOL. Only in the 3rd ward, I see a burned up dog.

Turn to the net age to see how rescuers turned her life around!


  1. I don’t understand why there is such a problem with stray dogs and abuse in Houston. Other cities don’t have this problem. I understand that the shelters are full so why aren’t these dogs rounded up and gently euthanized to save them from these cruelties? Or, at the very least neutered and released. Why don’t the vets team up to figure out a way to deal with the problem. (do they really love animals?) And why is there so much animal abuse down there.

  2. Houston authorities are not doing their job. It is a civilised state yet it reminds me of the locations in our country. Disgusting !!!!
