A pit bull was found in the neighborhood Friday, so badly injured most of his face was missing.
A seasoned veterinarian who euthanized the dog said he had never seen an animal in such bad shape.
Berkshire residents have long suspected there was a dog fighting ring in the neighborhood. They are hoping something is finally going to be done to stop it.
The dog was in such pain Memphis police officers immediately rushed him to a vet instead of waiting for animal control to arrive.
Vets at Berclair Animal Hospital said the dog was beyond saving. They gave him pain meds, then put him down to end his suffering.
