How can humans be so cruel? They need to find that person or persons and do the same thing to them. Absolutely awful.

From the looks of the picture there seems to be some older injuries on his head. I am sure he has had a lifetime of misery. I hope that someone gives him a home and spoils him for the rest of his life!

put their a**** in jail and do the time all of it hard time then make them register like sex offenders to where they can never have an animal again. Beat the hell out of them they are sick. If they abuse an animal they would abuse child or anyone..

It is really sad that this poor dog had to endure such pain. I hope this idiot who did this is put away for a long time.

I agree Jennifer, these animals (the abusers) need to be on a registry. Put then in a chain gang and make them do hard labor for their inhumane actions!

This poor sweetheart...I pray they find the bastard that did this...possibly cut off a finger or two of theirs, have them wander around a bit, then put their ass in jail for good...I am so pissed of seeing so many abused animals it sickens me

Here in India my state Kerala, named as "Gods own country" in tourist maps, street dogs are attacked and killed or injured and let die by extremist youths coming in motor bikes armed with swords in the middle of the night, whom Police feels are practicing to kill people from a moving motor bike. So far Police has not traced any killers. The pity is that news papers give report of injured dogs on the streets with cut off legs, deep wounds badly infected swamping with maggots.

This poor little puppy!! It just makes me sick to see how cruel people can be. Makes me feel like doing the same thing to the person that did this to this little guy.... May God bless and heal this little dog.

This just makes me sick. How can anyone do such a horrid thing to one of God's beloved creatures. I hope more people start to speak out against cruelty to animals. We all need to take a stand. Let what happened to Axel bring a positive turn and give people the motivation to stand up and speak out against cruelty to animals.

I hope you have found the human scum who is capable of doing this! Put this individual under the jail not in it....
