This Strong, Small Puppy Survived Abuse With Boiling Hot Water

He Was Punished By His Owner In The Cruelest, Most Insane Way…Your Heart Will Break

It’s easy to get frustrated with our little animal friends, but even at their worst there’s absolutely no excuse for the amount of pain this poor pup was subjected to. At just six-weeks-old, like many young puppies, he chewed on something he shouldn’t have — his owner’s phone.

Instead of behaving like a rational human being, the cruel owner doused the tiny animal with boiling hot water and tossed him out of the fourth story balcony of his apartment in Chengdu, China. That could have easily been the tragic end of this sad story, but luckily someone came by to offer the kindness this sweet boy so desperately deserved.

Warning: the images of his wounds are extremely graphic.

Yan Yingying found the scalded pup lying on the street and immediately rushed him to a vet.

They did the best they could to stabilize the poor thing, now going by Tuffy, but he needed more help than the local clinic could provide.

So Yingying brought him to the skillful folks at Animals Asia about an hour’s drive outside of Chengdu.

Though the staff members had seen plenty of cases of abuse and trauma cross their path, they had never seen anything this barbaric and heartbreaking.

His body was covered in so many blisters that he couldn’t even close his eyes to sleep.

Slowly, thanks to an amazing team of doctors, Tuffy started to get better.

Injections and grafts from a small portion of skin by his scrotum that was untouched by the water gave the little guy a second chance.

Yingying would frequently visit Tuffy while he recovered, and once he was well enough, she brought him home to stay with her forever.

Large sections of his fur still haven’t grown back, but generous strangers have donated adorable new coats to keep him warm.

Despite all that he’s been through, Tuffy is finally the happy, playful pup he was born to be.

It’s incredible that such a small dog could have so much strength and determination to get well. Thank goodness for the kind humans who outweighed the cruelty of another to give this cutie a second chance at finding trust, love, and happiness.
