A few months ago, I posted about this poor little dog that had been severly beaten and thrown into the woods to die. It was rescued by a neighbor, and the Marine responsible arrested on a felony animal abuse charge. He has been named Tiger by his foster family, and is recovering from his injuries. Out of over 70 applications to adopt him, a retired couple has been selected to give him a permanant home. They have a toy poodle that immediately befriended Tiger, and so he will have a family and a friend. He is so smart that he puts his own toys away, and has turned into a happy little dog again. There was a picture of him in the paper this morning, and he is adorable. The jerk that hurt him has a court date of January 21, and I hope there will be people from Carolina Animal Protection Society there. I will join them if there are. I may go anyway, if not. They said this is the worst case of animal abuse in this county's history, and are hoping that they will make an example of this guy. After the civilian court gets done with him, he will probably be punished by the Marine Corps. They do not look kindly upon such conduct.
