A blind, senior dog, who is severely underweight, is looking for someone to give him just a bit of “extra love.” The dog, dubbed “Hasten,” is currently being held at the Dekalb County Animal Services facility in Decatur, Georgia.
On Thursday evening, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Urgent Animals at Dekalb County Animal Services, posted a video of sweet Hasten, and a request for help:
Hasten is a sweet little guy who needs some extra love. This senior dude came to us only weighing 9 pounds. He’s working on gaining more weight while he’s at the shelter, but he would love a rescue group or foster home to help him heal.
He is blind, but he learns new surroundings quickly. Hasten loves people and wags his tail whenever he hears your voice. He is already neutered, heartworm negative, and can’t wait to leave the shelter behind.
Interested in learning more, or can you help? Please send an email to on of the following address:
Note: He is located at our shelter at 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd.
