News Reel - Neglected Dog Found

Here's a sad story about a dog who has not received the medical attention required. I was going to post the picture, but thought some may not be interested in seeing this poor guy. There are pictures on the article so click on the link if you wish to see him.

Neglected dog in 'horrific condition'

This dog should have received medical attention long ago; regardless of the cause of his condition. Asshats. Apparently he was found in someone's backyard ... now how do you suppose he got there? I would assume the yard is not fully fenced, but the article doesn't say either way.

I wonder what sort of circumstances this guy came from? I'm so busy wondering what will be in this guys future that I'm not focusing on his past ... weird, eh? I doubt they will find who had him or who let him exist in this condition.

Will he be euthanized? Will he recover with proper medication and nutrition? Does he have any behavioural issues? Can they be resolved or will they be big problems? Even if he recovers physically he may still be euthanized if he doesn't pass the SAFER test.

I hope things start to look up for this guy.

Bummer. I heard about this on the radio.

I was so happy about Kobe!

Aw, didn't click the link because, you're right, don't think I wanted to see it. :( I hope he gets all the help he needs and finds someone who will give him the extra care he'll need to get better and healthy again. People kill me sometimes...

I don't understand how anyone could be cruel to such a beautiful being. I hope they fry in hell. There was a dog here in the past year that was set on fire and was in a terrible state. Recently they did a follow up and he is ok, the vet adopted him, he can't use his back legs too well but he gets around. Lets hope for this dog also.
