Puppy thrown off second story balcony caught on video, rescued by Houston SPCA

A puppy had to be rescued by Houston SPCA after a man threw it off of a second-story balcony. 

HSPCA says they received a cruelty report with a video of a man throwing a baby husky over a second-story balcony. The puppy can be seen landing on the concrete about 15 feet below. The man went back inside his apartment as the puppy cried out.

Reports say the husky fortunately only sustained a broken leg but had other medical issues that need to be treated.

HSPCA says they were able to rescue the dog without a warrant since she was abandoned and brought her for immediate care by the staff veterinarians and animal care team. The puppy will remain with the animal rescue and protection organization while she heals.
