Dog Covered in Feces With Maggot Infested Wounds and Forced to Breed Her Whole Life Deserves Justice

Target: Chief of Police Miuccio, Boca Raton, FL
Goal: Find and arrest person responsible for abusing dog nearly to death.

Rescuers of a horribly abused dog have called it the “worst case of abuse” they’ve ever seen. The tiny Shih Tzu named Parker was found thrown over a fence in the early morning. Parker’s hair was thicky matted, she smelled like feces and urine, and had maggots crawling through the sores that covered her body.

When rescuers found poor Parker, she literally could not open her eyes due to the thickness of matts of hair that covered her entire body.

“The matts around her face were so tight that it kept her eyes open,” said Dr. Lindsey Naimoli, the veterinarian who treated Parker. “She wasn’t even able to blink.”

According to Dr. Naimoli, Parker was in so much pain, she yelped whenever someone touched her. As a result, in order to remove the matted hair, they needed to sedate her.

Incredibly, the matted hair accounted for one-third of Parker’s weight when she arrived at the rescue. “When she had all the matts on her, she weighed almost 9 pounds,” Naimoli said. “Once we removed all the matts, she weighed six pounds.”

Sadly, once the matted hair was removed, vets were able to see the real abuse that Parker had faced. She had sores covering her entire body and maggots were living inside the festering wounds.

According to Dr. Naimoli, Parker was “diagnosed with anemia, infection, parasites, [and] dehydration.”

Rescuers believe Parker is about 6 years old and have speculated that she has spent every day of her life in a cage.

It is suspected that whoever owned Parker, forced her to breed over-and-over again until she was no longer valuable to their breeding operation. At that point, she was thrown over the fence of the rescue facility, without regard to whether she lived or died.

Even more disconcerting is the suspicion by rescuers that Parker was not alone in her terrible existence. “It would be extremely rare to just have one animal treated horribly,” Dr. Naimoli said. “I think this is one of many.”

If this is true, it is even more urgent for authorities to quickly identify and capture the person, or persons, responsible for this nightmarish abuse.


Dear Chief of Police Miuccio,

A small dog named Parker was recently rescued in your jurisdiction. Parker was found with such severely matted hair that she could not open her eyes. It turns out that the matts in her hair represented one-third of the tiny dog’s entire body weight.

Once the matts were removed, it was discovered that Parker had maggot infested wounds covering her entire body. She was in such pain that she would yelp anytime a rescuer touched her.

It is suspected that Parker was held in a cage her entire life, and was forced to breed for her owner’s profit. Once she was no longer valuable, she was thrown over a fence like a piece of trash.

The worst part of this situation is that it’s suspected that Parker’s former owner still has other dogs being held in similar conditions. Therefore, it is imperative that whoever is responsible for this horrific abuse be quickly found and any other dogs in their possession be rescued.

  1. American Girl says:

    Law won’t do anything but slap them on the wrist. Put a target on them and cull these inbred cruel savages from society. They are Oxygen Thieves!

  2. This case bought me to tears. All animal abuse is horrendous and tears at the heart strings. This poor little dog stood very little chance after being used and abused and neglected for so long. No animal should go through this. I don’t know what the answer is but this kind of animal breeding had to be stopped once and for all. If only people would stop buying from these breeders who are puppy farm breeders at the best. Go to your nearest animal shelter or go to a reputable breeder. The price tells you if they are good breeders or not. If you can’t afford those prices go to a shelter and give a donation. There are so many animals out there needing a home. S for animals cruelty string them up or do to them as they have done to these innocent creatures. Human rights be dammed. Where the animals rights?!

  3. Why are there no laws for animals? Animal abuse of this magnitude should not be happening ! Who is gonna step up and start protecting innocent animals??? 😠
