Cruelty to Animals: Husky shot dead in Old Town Spring has leg amputated

OLD TOWN SPRING, Texas (KTRK) — A dog in Old Town Spring was shot and nearly killed last month.

Now the dog’s family and the community are hoping the person responsible will be held accountable.

Paco is a 4-year-old husky who entered the life of the Fuentes family last year when he showed up at their home and never left. They tried to look for his owner, but when no one claimed him, he became a great joy in their family.

He was a well-known jumper. Last month, Paco made his final jump over the family’s front yard fence. He and his siblings got out and walked to Main Street Old Town Spring.

“My dog ​​almost died. My dog ​​in the hospital cried, cried in the hospital for two days,” said Paco’s owner Edith Fuentes.

Cameras on Main Street captured the moment a man drew a gun, pointed it at Fuentes’ dogs, and started shooting. Paco was hit.

“A woman saw him shoot my dogs, so I have proof. Please help me,” Fuentes said. She says people aren’t comfortable speaking up because they’re afraid of retaliation.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office officials say they are investigating the situation.

They are working to confirm who the shooter is.

Authorities tell ABC13 the person could face charges of animal cruelty.

One of Paco’s legs had to be amputated because doctors believed it was beyond repair. He is now adjusting to his new reality as a three-legged dog.

Fuentes has multiple jobs and cannot afford a prosthetic leg for him.

She wants to give little Paco a quality of life again after this tragedy.

People in the Old Town Spring community say these actions don’t reflect their dog-loving town and hope the person will be blamed.
