Dog starved to the brink of death

Dog, starved to the brink of death, found in Wisconsin

A dog in Dunn County, Wisconsin, was starved to the brink of death and the authorities are hoping to find out who he belongs to. On Nov. 6, the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office issued a plea to the public, writing:

The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the owners of the pictured, severely malnourished, dog located in the area of State Highway 79 and County Road J in the Township of Sherman.

The dog, dubbed Gabriel, has been taken in by the Dunn County Humane Society who updated Facebook followers with information about him on Thursday:

The dog is an unneutered male and we really have no idea of his breed. He is estimated to be 2 years of age. We have given him the name Gabriel, which seems very fitting for him. We continue to work tirelessly to ensure that he pulls through.

Information wanted

Anyone who knows something about this dog is asked to reach out to the authorities. You may contact the Sheriff’s Office referencing case # 19-12355 or anonymously at


Gabriel has a long road to recovery, but he is already showing dramatic signs of improvement. You can follow his progress and/or make a donation via this link to his rescuer’s Facebook page.
