(DogFull.Com) In Brooksville, Florida, a starved dog named Chi Chi, left heavily chained up in the backyard of her home with no food or water, ate her own puppies to survive. Hernando County Sheriff’s Office made the grizzly and heartbreaking discovery after authorities were called by a neighbor, to a home on Leonard Street, who claimed he had been bitten by one of the dogs.
“Authorities were able to contact Goodson by phone who agreed to meet deputies at the Hernando County Animal Services offices in Brooksville. Goodson said a friend Breon Wyatt had given him the dog about a year ago. He indicated the dog got out of the yard a couple of months ago and he had only recently found Chi Chi and brought her back home. ..Goodson told authorities he fed Chi Chi regularly, but had no idea why she seemed starved. He explained the dog’s injuries were a result of the other dogs attacking her, but had not taken her to the vet for treatment. The dog is currently receiving medical attention.
“Goodson confirmed Chi Chi gave birth to two puppies about two weeks ago, but she had eaten them.”
