When we hear about somebody who abuses their dog, it makes our blood boil. When we hear about what Amber Sunde did to her dog, however, there are no words for it.
Sunde was caught abusing her puppy in Detroit, beating it and trying to throw it in a river. Fortunately, the Utica Police Department was able to get there in time and stop it from happening.
The abuse was so bad that people saw her throwing the puppy, who had two broken legs and a skull fracture, into the Clinton River. The puppy was able to make it out of the river a number of times and go back to the woman but she would throw him into the river again according to a report.
Although he was very young, he had already suffered extensively due to the abuse that he was put through. He had a fractured skull, two broken legs, and many other issues as a result of being beaten severely. X-rays showed that he also had old injuries, so this wasn’t the first time he was abused.
The woman who abused the dog was arrested but there were some issues with the court proceedings, due to a plea deal that eventually was done away with.
Animal lovers showed up at the courthouse to ensure that justice was served.
A sentence was handed down by Judge James Biernat. According to the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, not only did Sunde have to serve time in jail, but she is also prohibited from owning an animal again.
Beyond that, she was ordered to serve community service time and pay restitutions to Detroit Pit Crew for Lux’s medical bills.
This is considered to be a victory by the rescuers, and Finn is now living his best life. Thankfully, his legs didn’t have to be amputated and he will live the rest of his life in safe, loving home.
