Dog fighting for life after sickos tie fireworks to its testicles

Thugs tied firecrackers to a dog’s testicles and set them alight – before the poor pooch was mowed down by a car.

Demetrio was found on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, having wandered the streets for several weeks.

He was rescued a few days ago by animal rights group Rabito Kontento (Happy Little Tail) and is now fighting for his life.

Vets said Demetrio suffered a necrotic infection of the scrotum, which led to it being full of worms.

Rabito Kontento spokeswoman Sharon Deliz told the newspaper El Vocero that his injuries suggested firecrackers were tied to its testicles and lit.

She added that Demetrio cannot move having being run over.

He was also found with heartworm, a parasitic roundworm that can cause severe lung disease, heart failure, and other organ damage.

Deliz said that they have not reported the incident to the police yet because the residents who found the dog did not see any suspects.

She added: “It is horrible that a person could do such a thing. If someone did that to him, it was because Demetrio probably approached them for food or affection and got close enough that they could catch it and tie the firecrackers on its genitals.

“For being a good pooch, it was abused and injured. For being a good dog, it has suffered incredible pain.”

His former owner left a message on the bench weighed down by a rock.

Part of it read: ”Please, I ask that you adopt this cute dog and you take good care of him.

"It hurts a lot to leave my dog here but I made the decision of leaving him because my family used to mistreat him and it would always hurt me to see him in that condition.”

Boston was so terrified by locals passing by that attempted to help him that he tried to bite them.

Thankfully, the terrified pup has now been rescued by Marcela Goldberg, 54, who runs a pet shelter called Mascotas Coyoacan.
