Two Police Offices found him chained to a fence outside a park in Brooklyn, New York. Skin and bone the poor Pit Bull was shivering in the ice-cold freezing rain.
After finding the Pit Bull chained to the park fence the immediately contacted animal control who soon turned up and freed the suffering animal.
No one is sure how long he was chained to the fence at Betsy Head Park. The Pit Bull pup was surrounded by garbage, it would seem that’s how his previous owner saw him too.
Just skin and bone he was taken to a city shelter where he ran the risk of ending on death row. Knowing euthanasia was a real possibility, one ot the Police Officers, Officer Pascale, stepped right on up and adopted him.
From his previous condition its easy to see this poor puppy has not been shown the love and attention he deserves, but now all that is about to change.
Officer Pascale went to the shelter and adopted the Pit Bull, giving him the name Joey. He posted a photo of the occasion on Twitter with fellow Officer Levin, who helped rescue the forlorn pup.
“On 12/28/18 SRG PO Pascale & Levin observed an emaciated dog shivering tied to a fence outside Betsy Head Park. Removed to a shelter the dog was at risk of being euthanized if not adopted. PO Pascale started the adoption process & today he brought ‘Joey’ to his new forever home,” posted NYPD Special Ops.
Thank you for adopting the sweet boy. The dog-loving force posted a reminder on their social media to keep pets inside with the frigid temperatures. “#NYPD ESU #K9 Timmy is all bundled up and has no intention of heading out as the temperature continues to plummet. Please remember to keep pets inside during the dangerous cold.”
You can be a hero by adopting a dog or cat from your local shelter. They all deserve a loving forever home.
