The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office says Raymond Roy Hall drove down the road with a puppy tied to the back of his truck.
Witnesses told Animal Control the dog was freed when his collar broke.
The six-month-old puppy was in a lot of pain. Arlo’s skin and tissue were torn and some of his muscles and bones were exposed.
“It was pretty horrific,” said Anna Barbosa with Houston K-911 Rescue. “You could tell he was pretty much shut down and he was in a lot of pain.”
Arlo spent a few weeks in the ICU.
Since then he’s been with a foster home in the care of Houston K-911 Rescue.
With a lot of love and care, Arlo’s on the road to recovery.
“He’s doing great,” said Barbosa. “Arlo is a phenomenal dog, he never gave up. It was two months of 24-hour care. Now, his bandages are coming off and he just has a few left. He’s very happy and healthy.”Hall is charged with felony animal cruelty and torture.
Arlo is available for adoption.
The fundraising site set up for Arlo has raised more than $17,000 for his care.
