An emaciated and badly neglected puppy, who was found near a school in Edison, New Jersey, has been humanely euthanized. The puppy was found on the morning of August 11.
The Friends of the Edison Animal Shelter wrote of the puppy’s dismal condition:
“Unfortunately, help has come for this baby too late. According to the Doctors at Garden State Veterinary Hospital, the puppy was in congestive heart failure and is suffering. He had the worst heart murmur they had ever heard and was so severely dehydrated and malnourished. His feet were also deformed due to most likely being kept in a crate his whole short life.”
And explained how the decision was made to end the pup’s suffering:
“Due to his suffering, being so weak he could not even lift his head with the heart failure, we had to come to the decision to humanely euthanize him. We are all so upset at whoever owned him that they could have thrown him away instead of getting him medical attention before it was too late.”
Shelter officials want to find out who allowed this puppy to fall to such a pitiful state of health.
The shelter writes:
