When a child's heart is hurting for things that occur in the home, they may go to their teacher to help. And in this case, it helped to remove two innocent dogs from being further abused.
One of the 3 children in the family related to the teacher that the kids in the family had to beat the dogs … and if they didn't, they would get beaten. Bruises had been seen on the children by our ACO. The teacher contacted authorities including DYFS, AHS, SPCA and at an appointed hour, all arrived at the Union County address.
According to information received, Tyson the pit bull was kept tied outside during the day. In our handling of Tyson, we see a fearful, timid boy who kept his tail between his legs most of the time.
Both of these dogs need and deserve a loving hand and patience so that they understand that not every human is a source of pain and punishment.
Sadly, many cruelties take place behind closed doors and in many cases, children witness the lack of love and reverence for life that they should be taught. Teachers can and should be the lifesaver for youngsters who have no where else to turn.
Names and city are withheld to protect the innocent among them.
Bobby and Tyson are at the AHS Newark facility and are in need of great homes who will accept and understand the misery that shrouded every waking moment while they lived in that house. For more information, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 135153 for Bobby and 135154 for Tyson or e-mail us.
Please help contribute to AHS so that we may always keep our doors open to the needy and helpless.
