LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A pit bull puppy that was beaten and shot with a pellet gun is in need of a home.

The puppy named Blue was rescued by the county’s Department of Animal Care and Control officers on Friday after they received complaints that the animal had been beaten with a belt.

“(The Downey Animal Care Center’s) medical team was shocked to discover several pellets imbedded in his body and an injured front paw,” said Director Marcia Mayeda.

DACC Deputy Director Aaron Reyes said Blue has a “gentle and trusting demeanor despite what he has endured.”

Anyone interested in giving Blue a permanent place to live was asked to call Lt. Maria Rosales at (562) 658-2009.

    They should call cops to the scene, that way it will be humanely shot without trial… 😉

    I do detest individuals who harm four leggers intentionally.
