(KTVI) – St. Louis County Animal Control has been posting updates about a dog taken into their care on Thursday. A teen posted a video to Facebook on Tuesday showing a puppy being abused. Two juveniles have been arrested in this incident.

St. Louis County Animal Control says that the dog has been cleared by their veterinary team. The puppy does not appear to have any breaks or major damage to her body.

The dog is now named, "Honor." Cardinal pitcher Mark Buehrle's wife Jamie re-named the puppy. She is one of the first people to call animal control about this situation.

    If that kid would do that to a puppy, he would do it to a baby. How can someone be so heart less. It sickens me how kids act theese days.

    That is a true testament to the pitbull’s personality that it allowed those savages to do that to it. Even as a puppy it could have defended itself and didn’t. Those boys should be punished accordingly. They have no respect for life.

    Kids that harm animals have “conductive disorde”r as teens,and these kids frequently become sociopaths. Give them their just deserve for this cruelty to a harmless puppy, please.

      I agree with you. They will most likely grow up to be a menace to society. I worked with kids like this for almost 17 years and they start out with defenseless animals then get bored and move on to defenseless people usually small children or elderly. Lock them up and throw away the key.

    FYI Mark Buerhle is NOT a Cardinals pitcher. He pitched for the Blue Jays today. He and his wife Jamie are very active in local animal rescue.

    Did you hear what the Mother said? “I don’t think my son would do some things like that no way”. A response from his Father is forth coming as soon as they locate him. Apple seeds grow apple trees. Peach seeds grow peach trees…..etc….etc The kid never had a chance. Pity for the cruelty to the dog and the child. Hopefully, both of them survive the brutal treatment they both have endured.

      Typical thugs and hood rats, they will only get a slap on the wrist, just like the hood rat female that set the dog on fire a few months back…Liberal judges are to blame..

  • DISGUSTED

    This was just disgusting – Yes, I hope their cruel and shameless acts – that they were so proud of to post publicly are prosecuted to the full extend of the law. I have no care about their upbringing or the ignorance in their home life – it DOES NOT MATTER. Good people REGARDLESS of their upbringing – would have known this was cruel cowardly and SICK regardless of their age – 5, 8, 13, 17, 19, 20, 31, 43 etc, doesnt matter your age or background, infact youd think that if your background was so horrific you be the last person to inflict such upon any other living creature – they need to have their names posted and we need as a society to show we WILL NOT TOLERATE this – the next move, proven by scientific research studies, is the violence moving from innocent defenseless animals – to innocent defenseless humans.

  • Disgusted also!

    Remove these two monsters from society! Try them as adults, give them prison time, making sure other prisoners hear about what they did!
