An emaciated dog, abandoned inside of an otherwise vacant house, was rescued late last week by a real estate agent in Rockford, Illinois. According to WTOL News, Tim Johnson was alerted to the dog’s presence inside of the home by a concerned neighbor.
Johnson rushed to the rental property as soon as he learned that a dog might be trapped, and described the terrible condition found inside:
“I found her in this condition with no food, no water, and she had obviously been there for multiple weeks. There was feces and urine everywhere. She had tried to dig her way through the floors to try to get out.”
The owners of the property plan to file a report with the local animal control agency and the dog, dubbed Lady, will be nursed back to health before being adopted to a new family. Fortunately, several people have already expressed an interest in giving her a new home.
