Gordo The Puppy Was Thrown, Kicked, Broken: L.A. County Seeks Donations (PHOTOS)
The four-month-old pit bull mix was taken into the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center last week by a good Samaritan after he suffered a broken elbow at the hands, apparently, of his drug-crazed owner.
The L.A. County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care is asking for your donations to help him get the surgery he needs:
The department says his owner, "under the influence of drugs," threw the pup against a wall and kicked him repeatedly. That could be a felony, but the douche remains at-large -- and the investigation continues. Meanwhile ...
... Gordo needs pricey surgery to repair a "fractured lateral condyle," according to the department.
Animal Control director Marcia Mayeda:
He's got a great personality and will make a wonderful companion pet when he heals ... We are fortunate that Gordo is still alive ...
Make your donations, and we know you will, here. (And don't all fight over Gordo).
