A necropsy performed on Puppy Doe revealed the most heartbreaking short life of an innocent puppy who may not have ever had a happy day. She had been starved, repeatedly abused and tortured. There had been multiple broken bones by being pulled apart, stab wounds to her eyes, and a particularly disgusting serpent like split cut into the puppy's tongue. We must help find these people before they can hurt again.
Help find the torturers of “Puppy Doe”
GREAT NEWS - October 28th update!
PUPPY DOE'S abuser caught and now facing 11 COUNTS of Animal Cruelty!
Horrified dog lovers around the world who have been waiting for weeks to find out who starved, beat and tortured the pit bull cops call “Puppy Doe” now have their answer, investigators say — an illegal Polish immigrant and live-in caretaker who allegedly dumped the hobbled pup in a Quincy park the day the elderly patient he was nursing died.
Radoslaw Czerkawski was arrested Monday at a hotel in New Britain, Conn., and was to be arraigned today in Quincy District Court, Quincy Police Chief Paul Keenan said. He is charged with 11 counts of animal cruelty and one charge of misleading investigators.
“The case was of grave concern to us, and we took it very seriously,” Keenan said during a Monday afternoon statement to the press at the Quincy police headquarters. “We had an abused animal, and it was a very difficult case. …We do believe he (Czerkawski) acted alone.”
Czerkawski, who was brought to Massachusetts Monday afternoon, is from Hrubieszow, Poland, and was in the U.S. on an expired tourist visa, Keenan said.
Czerkawski had been living at 89 Whitwell St., directly across from Quincy Medical Center and adjacent to the park where the battered dog was found Aug. 31. The dog, believed to be about 1 year old, had been so severely beaten and tortured that it had to be euthanized.
Two State Police investigators were seen leaving the Whitwell Street house at about 4:30 p.m. Monday. The four-bedroom house has most recently been owned by Janina Malinowski Stock, according to Quincy assessors’ records. But Stock, a seamstress born in Poland, died in September, according to a Ledger obituary.
