BELLA VISTA, AR-- A tragic story of animal abuse, with hope for a happy ending. A warning though, the images can be disturbing. The Bella Vista Animal Shelter is asking for help to save this dog found abandoned and hurt, with a chain around its neck wandering along Highway 279 this week. The shelter released these photos of the dog, suffering from severe road rash and a possible broken leg. No word yet on whether the dog's owner has been found. According to the shelter, the animal is suffering shock and is set to undergo x-rays on Friday. But the costs for recovery could add up.
