At the BARC Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas, an older Great Dane had been found as a stray living in deplorable conditions. The disturbing video posted Wednesday on social media showed the dog being dragged to a shelter cage appearing very distressed and in pain.

The video shows the officers dragging the dog while her legs hit the floor as she sways around. No doubt the dog is in excruciating pain while being carried along.

Fortunately, to the rescue came SNARR Animal Rescue Northeast:

“WE HAVE AN OLDER GREAT DANE FOUND AS A STRAY IN DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS”
She is now a SNARR dog and we have named her Merry Bell. We will do whatever we can for this sweet old soul !!!
Arrangements were made to move Merry Bell out of the shelter as quickly as possible.
“She is very thin, masses on side, geriatric, both legs appear broken, unable to stand. No tags or microchip. Our vet staff is keeping her comfortable and will have her on pain meds. She is available for an early medical release.”
Left rear leg broken. Large mass on right rear lateral abdomen near spine. Geriatric, underweight. Depressed,” was the senior’s heartbreaking description.
Updates to follow.
To ask questions or make a complaint about Merry Bell’s treatment while at the shelter, please be civil and respectful. Email: Jordan.McGinty@houstontx.gov.
