SHERMAN, Texas – A Texas woman says she couldn’t believe what she saw while driving down a rural road in Grayson County.

“It broke my heart,” Denise Stokes told KTEN. “I found her and saw her laying on the ground, and her back legs were still duct-taped. The tape around her mouth and front legs had already been removed, but she couldn’t walk because they were crisscrossed together, taped up.”

Stokes says she recognized the dog as a stray in the area, and couldn’t believe that someone would be so cruel to an innocent animal.

After seeing her on the side of the road, Stokes brought her home and is now looking for a rescue organization to take her in.

“They’ll chip her, they’ll have her vetted, they’ll have her spayed, and — hopefully — find her a good home like she deserves,” she said. “I want her to have love, I want her to be happy, and I want her to make somebody happy, because I know she will.”

The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office says it is investigating the animal cruelty case.
