MIAMI – A Florida family’s missing dog was found dead, with a cruel handwritten note taped to its broken body, police said Tuesday.

“WE BEAT IT 2 Death lol! HAHAHA!” read the note, according to police in Pembroke Pines. A smiley face was drawn with the message, KTLA reported.

The 13-year-old Pomeranian, named Fox, went missing after he was let outside to a grassy area just outside his family’s back door on August 7, owner Verline Bartheleny told Miami television station WSVN.

A day later, Fox’s body was found left on the condominium’s back stoop, the note taped to his fur.

“I saw the note and it was just horrifying. I just started crying,” Bartheleny said. “I’ve had him for a long time. It hurts.”

The family took the dog to a veterinarian to find out what happened to their pet. The animal had a broken spine, broken jaw, cracked ribs and a ruptured stomach, WSVN reported.

    My heart breaks for Foxx’s family. What a beautiful little creature he was. The people who killed him are sociopaths who should be put down.

    Maybe it was barking all night and/or the owners would let it use the bathroom all around the neighborhood with no regard for others. I guess a quick death would have been better than beating it to death, but I’d still like to hear both sides of the story.

      I suspect that’s exactly what happened.

      Some “people” don’t “get it” and have to be reminded that barking dogs and ghetto neighbors destroy the peace and drag home prices down.

      Sorry, but them’s the facts.

        The suburbs have loud barking dogs, heroin infested, & swinger infested ghetto neighborhoods that not only bring housing values down, but brings criminal activity & child abuse.
