Prosecutors are looking for the public's help with any information to identify who may be responsible for torturing 'Puppy Doe' - also known as Kiya.

Kiya we've now been told was a previously loved pet, whose owner had to rehome. 

Through this rehoming she has tragically come into the world of CRAIGLIST and then into the hands of the scum who so callously tortured her.

She did not deserve this, and we want to see the scum held responsible and punished for their act of pure evil animal cruelty.

A severely malnourished pitbull endured months of torture that included having its limbs pulled apart in a medieval-style “drawing,” the vet who performed the dog’s necropsy told the Herald today as authorities plead with the public to help them find the “sadistic” person responsible.

A shaken Dr. Martha Smith-Blackmore of the Animal Rescue League said the fate of the brindle-colored pit cops named “Puppy Doe” before she was euthanized is “unquestionably ... hands down” the worst case of animal abuse she has ever seen.“She was a rack of beaten bones,” Smith-Blackmore said. “Her joints were pulled apart like Medieval times. 

She was beaten, stabbed, burned over weeks to months and maybe her whole life. And could not walk. When I saw how vulnerable she was and I understood immediately the duration of her suffering, my heart collapsed.”Smith-Blackmore said “Puppy Doe,” who was discovered by a passer-by Aug. 31 abandoned in woods near the Whitwell Street playground in Quincy, endured having a wrist, ankle and elbow separated from their joints and a leg bone virtually broken in half from being drawn “over and over and over. 

It’s a very intimate form of violence- See more at:

Then - Help find the torturers of "Puppy Doe"

Appalled by the incident, state Rep. Bruce Ayers, D-Quincy, renewed his call Friday to toughen penalties for those convicted of animal cruelty. 

The current law, enacted in 2004, says animal cruelty is a felony and those convicted could face up to five years in prison, jail time, or a fine of up to $2,500.Ayers, who filed his amendment to the animal cruelty law in January, wants to increase the fine to $5,000 and require that the fine be levied on top of a prison or jail sentence, instead of in lieu of a sentence.
