Already trained

I saw this dog recovering in a back kennel at Whatcom Humane Society when I stopped by to visit last week. She was terrified. Rescued just days earlier, she had been tied to the train tracks by someone and hit once by a locomotive. I see or hear about cruelty every day, but this one shocked even me.

Shelter staff named this poor girl Nell, after the woman in the old cartoon who was tied up on the train tracks by evil Snidely Whiplash. She would be rescued by her hero Dudley Do-Right. In this case, it will be the shelter that's doing right for sweet Nell.

Please keep track of this helpless victim of human cruelty and let us know someone will love him and keep him safe forever. I can think of no punishment harsh enough for the perpetrator of this crime.

WTF is wrong with human beings? How is her recovery going?
