A VICIOUS knife thug slashed and stabbed a dog 19 TIMES — before leaving it for dead.
The evil maniac tried to slit two-year-old bull mastiff Arnie’s throat nine times and another two sickening blows exposed the pooch’s spine.
“The dog had 19 wounds, the most significant being nine attempts at slashing his neck.
“One of the slashes on his neck could not have been closer to exposing the jugular vein. He was incredibly lucky it wasn’t severed.
“He also has four hack marks on his back, two of which were down to the spinal column.
“On one of his legs the muscle had been hacked down to the shin bone.”
Arnie was reported missing by his owner in Port Glasgow, Renfrewshire, on Wednesday night and found a day later in agony.
Amazingly the brave pet walked into the vet’s WAGGING his tail — despite the deep, painful cuts all over his body — and is now recovering. Neil added: “A nicer dog you couldn’t meet, yet he’s had to have surgery for three hours and has had 92 sutures.”
What an absolutely sickening attack. And to think that this poor dog still managed to wag his tail as he walked into the vet's. Dogs are so forgiving, it saddens me that people can be so sadistic towards them.
I hope Arnie's owner and his mates find out who did this.
