A dog was found buried alive in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico last week and rescued by a passer-by who saw two men in a pick-up truck dump a mountain of dirt she though was just filling but then saw something moving and went to check it out.

The dog, now named Zeus, was immediately taken to the San Miguel Veterinary Clinic in Bayamón by rescuer Milagros Claudio were experts said he was used as bait to train fighting dogs and he was in a very delicate condition.

The Big Dog Rescue Foundation took responsibility for the dog who was diagnosed with severe malnutrition, anaemia and presented several infections with pus and worms.

The abuse was too much for Zeus to endure and he passed away two days later on Sunday morning.

“The doctor went to the clinic, drew blood to monitor his platelets and haemoglobin and minutes later Zeus passed away in shock… our warrior has left,” said president of the Big Dog Rescue Foundation Gizel Baez.

“We hope that the story of Zeus will become an example and people will start reporting clandestine dog fights. Will see what legacy Zeus leaves behind,” said Baez to Primera Hora.

    Dog fighters are subhuman filthy shitbags that need to be exterminated en masse. This poor dog is one of so many that these sociopaths torture because they can. Death to dogfighting trash.
