How could they? How could someone let their dog get into this condition? Dallas Dog RRR introduced Facebook followers to a new intake named Hattie – her condition is appalling. The organization wrote:
I really don’t know how to put into words the pictures below, without getting overly emotional. I’m sad, upset, scared… hopeful? This may be the worst owner surrender we have taken in. How can someone let this happen to their pet? HOW?
The appalling lack of care
It didn’t take a veterinarian to point out that Hattie has lacked care for far too long – the pictures say everything. Amazingly, though Hattie’s owners have stated that her tumor has been growing for nearly two years…they did nothing for her, and sadly they will not be facing animal cruelty charges.
Hattie is finally in good hands and she will be receiving veterinary care. Whether or not she will be able to recover from this long term neglect is still unknown. According to the rescue group, Hattie is undergoing surgery at Vet Ranch to remove the massive tumor – stay tuned.
