A Florida animal protection group says that a stray male dog has been released from surgery after she was found being viciously abused along a Florida road.
Laura Colding, student nutrition manager at Bryan Elementary school, said that she first saw the dog along the side road while driving to work. However, she soon realized that he was not following his leash.
Colding stated that “the most horrible thing” was the verdict. Colding said that the dog was wearing zip ties around her neck and some kind of wire like a phone cord. Her neck was bleeding profusely. The zip ties were embedded in her neck, as you could see. “I couldn’t leave my dog like this.”
Colding claimed that the dog, despite the horrific injuries sustained, was calm and cooperative. She even wag her tail. Colding waited for the rescuers for nearly two hours with the dog.

Colding stated, “I can’t think of the cruelty this dog experienced before I found them or how many zip ties she had on her neck and not getting any love and attention.” Colding said, “And they’re supposed be man’s best friends.”
The 2-year-old dog is expected to be adopted in the near future. Anyone with information about how the animal was injured can call 813-744-5660.
