Bruiser was rushed to a local veterinary clinic, and the owner was taken to an area hospital for an undisclosed reason. Perhaps having to slit an animals throat, and having a blood-covered hammer prompted police to seek treatment for the man. Bruiser had been beaten over the head with the hammer.
Carren Bowner at the Small Animal Medical Center in Brownwood has been helping care for Bruiser since he arrived. She told KTXS
“I just don’t understand why people want to do something cruel to any animal. It’s wrong.”
As for Bruiser’s condition, Carren explained
“He does have some skin issues that may need ongoing treatment, but as far as we know there’s not anything obvious that’s a life-threatening condition. He might have some post-traumatic stress. Dogs get that too, so he may have some issues after this.”
Angels & Outlaws Second Chance Bully Ranch has spoken up for Bruiser, and he will be going to their rescue as soon as he’s been cleared by his vet.

“Since the News announced it I guess we should let y’all know even though we are on a pull freeze we made room for this boy at Heathers house because of his circumstances. We feel that Heather and her husband John will be able to help him work through any residual issues he may have from the trauma he suffered at the hands of the person that was suppose to protect him and take care of him.”
No charges have been filed at the time against Bruiser’s owner, who remains unidentified as police investigate this case. Animal cruelty charges in Texas carry up to a $10,000 fine and two years of jail time if convicted.
