Rose: Victim of sexual assault gets justice

Posted by hendrickandco 11/19/2017 0 Comment(s) Animal Stories,

Rose was just an 8-month-old, pit mix, and although she was so young, she was a puppy who went through far more than any other could imagine.

Rose lived in Florida with her owner, a 61-year-old man, who was seen by neighbors sexually assaulting Rose on his front porch.

When the officers responded and approached the suspect's porch, they saw the dog chained to a post with only eight inches of slack. There was no water, food or shade for her. The officers described the Rose's condition in the police report as "clearly emaciated" with "a very swollen vagina".

According to the police report, two witnesses said they had previously seen the suspect placing his fingers into the sex organs of a young, small, light brown mixed-breed puppy on several occasions while the animal barked in distress.

One witness also told police that he once observed him sitting on a chair outside of his apartment with his pants down to his ankles. The dog was in his hands with her rear close to his genitalia.

Rose was flown by Pilots 'n' Paws to Second Chance Rescue NY to get help. She had a broken tail, deformed shoulders, swollen back end, broken teeth, a UTI, underweight, frail, and a crushed spirit.

Hendrick & Co. immediately created a campaign to raise the funds to support Rose. With each and every purchase, Hendrick & Co. donated to help save Rose and give her whatever she needed to survive.

Hundreds of you heard our call and purchased the animal-saving products to help save Rose.

Today, Rose has a new life. She was adopted and her new family is just showering her with love and that love is coming back 10-fold in the form of licks and tailwags.

The best news of all came just months after Rose was rescued from the horrendous abuse she had to endure. Her rapist was sentenced to five years in federal prison as a crowded courtroom filled with Justice for Rose supporters cheered and cried tears of every emotion possible.

Rose is one lucky girl. Her photos are proof of the new life she lives...one filled with love and joy.
