Dog found with mouth wired shut, legs tied together in Chesterfield County


A dog found with its mouth wired shut and its legs tied together was reportedly tossed out of a car window Wednesday night in Chesterfield County.

Chesterfield County Animal Services manager Rebecca Davis is offering a reward in finding whoever is responsible for the alleged abuse.

According to Davis, a person was driving behind a car when they saw something fly out of the window. As they got closer, they realized it was a dog. The person called 911.

Davis said the small dog – now named Handsome Henry – had a broken jaw, a skin infection, an ear infection and an eye infection.

“Of course this mistreated soul needs a rescue to step up and give him/her a life where all this can be left behind,” Davis said in a Facebook post.

Handsome Henry will be sent to the Greater Charlotte SPAC after he recovers.

Anyone with information about who is responsible for abusing him is asked to call Chesterfield County Animal Services at 1-843-623-3585.
