Pitiful homeless dog appears to have led a life of neglect

A pitiful homeless dog, held at the Riverside County Animal Control agency in California, appears to have led a life of neglect. The seven-year-old pit bull mix has been at the facility since January 8. This week, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs, described the dog’s sad condition:

 Facial wounds/scars from possible fights. Half-dollar sized mass next to left side of penis. Has dried blood on it and on rear legs. Soft masses all over body. Overweight.

What happened to this dog? Was he cast aside and made to fight for his life? Did he get into an altercation with another dog? Was he forced to fight? Has he ever been shown love and kindness?

Nobody knows the answers. Right now, what is known is that he needs help in order to live out the remainder of his life.
