However, Jack was reportedly stabbed in the back by someone on the way home.
According to local residents, the dog is well known in the area and is said to be very popular with children.
When Jack arrived home with the knife sticking in its back, its owner Fabian Soria rushed the dog to a veterinary clinic for urgent treatment.
Sadly, the poor pooch’s liver was punctured and it is currently fighting for its life, according to reports.
Soria reported the alleged stabbing to the police who have confirmed that they are investigating the matter.
However, it is currently unknown who attacked Jack.
Netizen ‘Maria Laura Lopez’ commented: “As this is far from the only case, I think anyone torturing animals like this deserves a stiff prison term like they get in the United States.”
