In Elizabethton, Tennessee, a hound that had been tied up and left to starve to death and who had not been fed in a month arrived at the Airport Emergency Clinic on Saturday night. Volunteers from Misfit Hounds were there to help.
“I will say he is the most emaciated dog I have ever seen alive,” the organization posted on their social media page. “He likely only had days before he would have died. Let that sink in…”
Later in the evening, Gabriel (named after the Archangel) was hospitalized and received blood transfusions and intravenous fluids. By Sunday morning, his condition had improved slightly, and Gabriel was eating on his own – obviously a good sign.
Monday morning good news video:
We are home. He just ate a little and can't wait until our next feeding. He's still so weak that he can't stand but he can woo woo a little. Gabe has a long road ahead of him but he isn't in it alone. I'm pretty sure he has a large support group.

Gabriel is still too weak to stand, but every slight improvement counts. To follow his recovery, follow the organization on Facebook.
A criminal investigation is currently underway.
