The Parker County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death last week of a puppy reportedly thrown from a vehicle along Interstate 20. 

A Tarrant County constable reportedly contacted the sheriff’s office about a Fort Worth investigation into a domestic assault that reportedly occurred in a traveling vehicle. 

At some point, a small, white male puppy was reportedly taken from a woman and thrown from the driver’s side window of a vehicle near Tarrant County.

Authorities located the young dog, which had blood coming from its mouth, ears and eyes, according to the sheriff’s office. 

The investigation is ongoing and no arrest had been made as of Tuesday afternoon, according to a sheriff’s office spokeswoman. 

 

Two puppies dead after mother shot

Two of ten young puppies found May 28 by the road caged and nursing on their dead mother, who had been shot in the head, have died, the rescue group caring for the dogs is reporting. 

Parker County resident Tammy Douglas, who was charged with animal cruelty in connection with the incident, remains out of jail on $5,000 bond. 

A passerby reportedly alerted authorities after finding the animals left along Raley Road in northeast Parker County. The puppies were covered in their mother’s blood. 

Investigators believe Douglas shot the nursing dog, a heeler/shepherd mix, in the head and abandoned the newborn puppies where they were found hours later. 

Angels & Outlaws Second Chance Bully Ranch is reportedly accepting applications for adoption of the remaining puppies until June 13.
