Update: Puppy stabbed in face in August now ready for adoption
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. —
The Hamilton County Humane Educational Society (HES) says a Mika, a 12-week-old puppy who was stabbed several times in the face last August by an 10-year-old boy is now ready for adoption.
A concerned neighbor reported the incident to the Humane Educational Society.
HES Animal Protection Officers immediately seized Mika and rushed her to RIVER Animal Hospital for emergency surgery.
Veterinarians were able to save Mika's life, but she lost her eye as a result of the incident.
Almost six months later, HES says Mika finally got her day in court. It has been awarded full ownership of Mika and she is now available for adoption.
HES says it was also awarded ownership of one other dog that was in Mika's previous owners' care.
HES says it is looking forward to helping Mika put her tragic past behind her, and that at 8 months old, Mika is finally ready to find her forever home.
One other dog seized in the case will be assessed at the Humane Educational Society where she will receive medical care and rehabilitation before being placed in a loving forever home.
