The owner of Isis, a shepherd terrier mix, was charged with animal cruelty last month after the dog was found outside in the cold, having been severely beaten by neighborhood children in Chicago. The owner, Lashon Johnson, and her teenage son, reportedly abandoned the dog before moving to an apartment a few blocks away from their prior home, which had a strict ‘no dog’ policy. The dog was left behind, to fend for herself, and subsequently started barking to get it’s owners attention.
CBS Chicago reported that the dog started howling and barking late into the night arousing the cruel intentions of some mischievous kids in the Garfield Park neighborhood. They tried to halt her barking by painfully beating her senseless. The children used brooms and bats, leaving the dog bloodied and injured. Isis, the dog, made it’s way to the front porch of the Johnsons home, leaving a path of bloodied paw prints.
Police were called and the dog was rescued and given treatment. Isis is expected to make a full recovery and is now in the care of a canine foster home. Animal Care Commissioner, Cherie Travis, says she hopes to have the dog adopted out in the next few weeks to a good home. For updates, visit the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facebook page.
