Rocky, a 4-month-old Chihuahua mix, was found buried in a heap of garbage beside an apartment complex in San Francisco. The poor pup had been surviving on filthy food from the garbage and was in very bad shape.
Rocky was frozen in fear, and she seemed to have suffered many injuries from a beating, and even had a broken back leg. She was severely dehydrated and was ill from eating from the dumpster. Animal control officer Rebecca Fenton took Rocky under her wings.
With the help of security footage, a 59-year-old man named Ronald Louis Jones was tracked to be the one responsible for the abuse. He was found guilty of beating Rocky, and then throwing her down a 3-story trash chute. He will be facing animal cruelty charges.
As for Rocky, her broken leg had to be amputated due to complications. After the nightmarish ordeal that she endured, there is finally some hope for her. Rebecca, who took care of Rocky during her ordeal, has decided to adopt Rocky and give her the love and care that she never received. Go, Rocky!
