A little 2–year-old Shih Tzu, named Gizmo is sweet, friendly, and playful who is more than a cherished member of Mandy Garner’s family. So, as her service animal, Mandy depends on Gizmo. Because based on his daily living activities Gizmo, plays a very important role in her life.
There is always the same day no extraordinary thing happens and while inside her Baytown, Texas home, Mandy sends Gizmo to go outside to play and relieve himself, as she always does. But something happened next to her. Mandy stated that she needs to go back inside her home, to put few things away, and went back outside for Gizmo to bring him in.
After that, she was horrified by watching that Gizmo was shaking and had something wrong with his face. She ran quickly and scooped the little dog up and immediately drove him to a nearby animal hospital for medical attention.
With the pandemic COVID situation many restrictions in place, Mandy was not allowed to go inside, but the vet did his best and performed a variety of tests to examine what happened to Gizmo. By observing the damage Gizmo seemed suffered a chemical burn to his face and for that, he was hospitalized for a week for treatment.
She stated that it seems as someone set the dog on fire, which is technically seemed how it feels to have major chemical burns. She continued, “A pest control officer said that it was a large amount intentionally put on him, not to mention he had internal bruising in his chest as well as mouth messed up where they possibly could have kicked him afterward.”
The sad news is poor Gizmo is blind and will need both of his eyes removed. She also tells that: “I called Baytown Police Department to file charges for animal cruelty which is a felony offense and they stated that they can’t do anything because I don’t live in the City Limits of Baytown and for me to call Harris County Sheriff’s Office,” Mandy wrote on Facebook.
“I called them they stated they don’t investigate animal cruelty only if a dog has bitten someone and that’s not the case, and they told me to contact the Houston SPCA and I’ve filed reports with them and nobody will do anything.”
