This is the poor puppy that was targeted by thugs on New Year’s Eve and had lit fireworks shoved in its mouth prompting kindhearted residents to raise 12,000 GBP for its ongoing treatment.

The poor pooch, which suffered serious injuries to its mouth and jaw, fell victim to thugs on New Year’s Eve in the village of Inzhich-Chukun in the south-western Russian republic of Karachay-Cherkessia.

According to local media, a pregnant dog and a puppy were found on a building site with signs of exploded fireworks in their mouths.

The puppy, called Sofie by volunteers, suffered a shattered jaw and burned paws.

However, the pregnant dog died of blood loss during surgery, according to reports.

Meanwhile, kindhearted residents have managed to raise over one million RUB (12,285 GBP) to help the poor pooch.

Sofie has since been moved to the capital Moscow and is currently being treated at the White Fang veterinary clinic.

Reports said that vets had to remove everything in Sofie’s oral cavity including bone fragments and dead tissue.

The puppy also lost most of its tongue and vets said that it will not be able to drink water on its own again and will need 24/7 care for the rest of its life.

Despite its serious injuries, vets are hopeful that the puppy continues to feel better and slowly recover over time.

Netizen ‘Anna’ said: “Poor puppy. I hope a nice owner comes forwards and becomes its best friend.”

‘Aleksey’ commented: “People, why so much hate? Everything comes back on us like a boomerang.”
