NEW MEXICO - It is a case of severe animal cruelty.
This pitbull was stolen from a Lovington, New Mexico home over a week ago.
Days later, she mysteriously showed up on someone's front yard with severe acid burns on her back.
She underwent emergency surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.
The veterinarian who cared for the dog says she was likely stolen by someone who wanted to torture her or use her train other pitbulls how to fight.
