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.

Volunteers added:

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.

    How do you let a dog get to this point and not notice how emaciated he is? Afraid of being blamed for this dogs condition so you don’t do anything until he is at this point? An older dog who still has many years left and seems to been dealing with his blindness for a while. Hope he gets a forever home soon.

    OMG! A little dog doesn’t eat that much. How did they let this happen? They need to be ashamed and charged, for that matter.
