An emaciated dog, wrapped in a tarp and dumped by garbage, was discovered in New Haven, Connecticut, on Sunday. According to Super Paws Rescue Inc., the German shepherd mix, dubbed “Frank,” was found next to a dumpster by a friend of the rescue agency and he was rushed to a veterinarian for urgent care.

On the fundraiser created to help raise funds to treat the emaciated dog, a disturbing allegation about the reason for this dog being “thrown away” was shared with donors – the claim, outlining why the dog was tossed out with the garbage, reads:

The person caring for him claims he is not hers, that he belongs to a family member. She says he is 14-16 years old and developed arthritis and couldn’t walk,  so they left him outside to die.

On Sunday, the rescue group updated Facebook followers that the skeletal dog may be stricken with cancer:

Frank may have cancer, we are not sure. Our private vet wants to see him to run tests and make a diagnosis.
Please keep him in your prayers.

    I hope when the “person” is old and arthritic, they put him/her out to die. What a POS. This poor dog did nothing wrong except get old…which will happen to ALL of us. If he only has a short time left on this Earth due to either arthritis or cancer, I pray that he’s loved and appreciated every minute that he has remaining.

    The ‘person’ (read: thing) who did this needs to be abandoned in the middle of the woods or some vast wilderness where it will never find its way out so it will die of exposure, or maybe something worse.

    Cancer or sick or belongs to someone else, you just don’t throw the baby away.. That is the way our society thinks now.. If it is not perfect get rid of it. People wake up have a heart find some compassion.
