They gave the dog to a certain Michael Hill and gave him $60 as payment for the shelter. Hill decided to keep the
money for himself, and tied up the dog and threw it into the field.
In February 2016, Hill was convicted and received two years in prison. Hill received three years of probation and a 25-year ban on owning animals or living near animals in addition to the prison term.
When Justice fell into the hands of veterinarians, her condition was terrible. The dog could hardly breathe, and
the adhesive tape left a deep and long-lasting scar on its muzzle. She also had difficulty walking.
Now her condition has returned to normal, but a noticeable white scar will forever remain on her face. In June 2016, Justice found new owners.
And recently, the Windsor / Essex County Human Society, as a charity event, released a series of soft plush toy dogs with the appearance of Justice and the same white scar on the muzzle.
Each toy costs $30, and all proceeds will go to the Fund for the Protection of Animals from Cruelty.
