Who Gouged Out Gandolph’s Eyes? (And Why it Matters)

I was watching the evening news when I saw an absolutely brutal story about a 9-month-old Spitz puppy found wandering the streets of Greenville. The dog’s eyes had been gouged out and according to reports were hanging and punctured. The North Greenville Animal Hospital was forced to surgically remove the puppy’s eyes, and they say it looks like the wounds were two weeks old. The dog was wandering for a few days at least.

So someone gouged out this puppy’s eyes and likely kept it around for a few days before the puppy escaped their clutches.

My wife pointed out that it would be unlikely that a person could gouge out both an animals eyes unassisted. It is also unlikely that no one in the area the dog was found heard the torture, and even more unlikely that no one knows who did this to the puppy.

Gandolph is up for adoption and will need a loving home to train him to cope with blindness.

It is imperative that we find out who committed this horrible act even though authorities have not begun an investigation into the crime. This isn’t an imperative because we need to punish the deviants who did this, though all decent people want to see justice served in cases of such extreme evil. It is an imperative because you need to know who they are. You need to know who thinks feels good gouging out the eyes of a puppy. You need to know who stands by and lets a puppy have it’s eyes gouged out. You need to know who is friends with people who do such things and don’t seem to care at all.

You need to know for your own safety. If people torture puppies for fun do you really think they are otherwise decent people? What do you think these people, who gouged out the eyes of a puppy, will do to you if your car breaks down and no one is around? What do you think they do to children they are alone with? What do you think they would do if we had a couple of days without power, or the dollar collapsed?

It is popular these days to excuse everyone, to claim that crimes are “mistakes” and not evidence of the character of the people who commit them. Blinding a shrieking, struggling puppy is not a mistake, however. It is evil. The people who did this are evil and the people who know they did this and did nothing to help the animals are evil. I personally would like to know if these people live near me, or shop where I shop. I want to know so I can shun them, so I can make sure that degenerates like this aren’t near me because they cannot be trusted. I hope you realize that that way too.

I hope you realize that evil exists, that there are people who take pleasure in hurting others. These people aren’t crazy, in this case they are sane enough to hide from authorities, they simply give themselves over to evil because they like to. Even now Gandolph’s assailants are amongst us, unwholesome, unclean, and savage. They plot and they plan, full of anger and envy, greed and lust. Always they seek out new victims, the more helpless the better. And they are amonst us, near our mothers and wives, are fathers and sons. Our children. We must know who has done this, if only so they won’t do something similar to us.

Let’s find out who these scum are before we read about a child whose eyes were ripped out.

    Agreed. My aunt is a child psychologist and has said for years that almost every murderer/serial killer has a history of torturing animals.

    I have a feeling this puppy was to be used as a bait dog, Popping it’s eyes out so it couldn’t fight back. I would start with any person in a low rent area walking a Pitbull. I know, I know, before the Pitbull people come out of the wood work, it’s the people, not the dogs. I get it.

    There are many of us on a Keeshond listgroup who are very concerned about the outcome for this poor puppy. Keeshonden are in the spitz family, and have a special place in our hearts.
    If the little guy has been placed in a loving home, can someone please write back to me
