Horrifically Abused Dog Used as Bait for Fighting Deserves Justice

Target: Eddy T. Johnson, Superintendent of Police, Chicago

Goal: Harshly punish owner of dog fighting ring.

He was a starved 41 pounds when he was found. His body was covered with cuts, bruises and sores on top of old scars. He was missing teeth, and those that remained had been filed down or were broken. One of his ears had a chunk missing out it. He was scared, hungry and abused. He was a bait dog used to train fighter dogs twice his size with triple his strength. He was meant to exist as a chew toy for the more aggressive. His attackers were dogs that were mistreated, abused, isolated and taught to be aggressive toward other dogs. The three years of his life were filled with torture and pain until his rescue. He was found by animal control in Chicago, who, in turn, contacted Tina Petraline from Unbreakabull Bullies, a non-profit animal rescue. Tina was quick to respond to the needs of this injured boy and continues to work with him to this day. He is now known as Wonder Boy.

Tina Petraline is the founder and CEO of Unbreakabull Bullies and rescues animals in need. Her focus is on fighter dogs, bait dogs, abused dogs and those next on the list to be euthanized at kill shelters. Tina and her volunteers rescue animals and get them medical care, train them in obedience through positive reinforcement, and get them adopted by vetted, loving families.

Wonder Boy has been with Unbreakabull Bullies for four months now. He has gone from a starving 41 pounds to a healthy 72 pounds, and he is the happiest and safest he has ever been. Unfortunately, the man allegedly responsible for the condition that Wonder Boy was found has received only minor consequences and no jail time, according to Petraline. The accused lives as a free man and allegedly continues raising dogs for bait and for fights. He needs to be stopped. Sign this petition demanding that the accused abuser be further investigated and harshly punished, if convicted, for violating federal law and raising fighter dogs.


Dear Mr. Johnson,

As an outstanding police officer and superintendent, it is clear that your priorities are to maintain the safety and well-being of the public through intervention, protective measures of crime prevention, and education. We thank you for your service and willingness to do what is best for the community.

We know that it can be difficult at times to maintain safety and to stop dangerous people from continuing to harm others. As an officer well informed on crime as well as social issues such as domestic violence, you understand the correlation between behaviors such as domestic violence and animal abuse. This knowledge and passion that you possess, coupled with your position of power and influence, is the reason we contact you today.

We, the undersigned, demand that the Chicago Police Department open a proper investigation into the horrible abuse of Wonder Boy.

  1. Throw these dogfighter trolls in a pit of their own creations. Let them see how it feels. Maybe people can bet on them to be chewed up too. Sorry I have no mercy on abusers anymore reading all these horror petitions. A little jail time does nothing to rehabilitate their evil souls. They need brutal harsh punishments.
