CENTRAL ISLIP, Long Island (PIX11) — A pit bull found strangled, beaten and abandoned in a Long Island road is now ready to be adopted into a special home.
The dog, named Rocky, found at Rt. 111 and Sage Street in Central Islip in February. Rocky had a cable tied around his neck and a bloody plastic bag was found nearby. Due to his injuries, Rocky suffered neurological damage.
Rocky is ready for his forever home, but needs an owner with a strong personality and no other pets, according to the Suffolk County SPCA. He does not get along with other animals and has an aggressive personality. It’s unclear if Rocky developed aggressive behavior due to the injuries he suffered.
A $2,000 reward is still being offered for information leading to the person(s) responsible for Rocky’s abuse. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722.
