She Thought They Were Bug Bites, But Her Puppy Was Actually Shot Over 60 Times

His name is Jackson and he’s not like other puppies. He is a bouncy Bull Mastiff, and even in his “baby” state, he weighs over 100 pounds. He is the pride and joy of his owner and so lovable and friendly that it’s impossible to imagine anyone wanting to hurt it. Once you hear the story, however, you will realize that that sentiment is not shared by everyone.

What she later learned was so unsettling and so shocking that it rocked her faith in her fellow man.

All signs pointed to a neighbor who lives near Howard’s property.
