On Thursday afternoon, a Connecticut animal shelter reached out to the public for help after taking in a badly neglected dog. The Hartford Animal Shelter writes:
This boy was found wandering the street. From his condition it appears he had been neglected for many years.
He has a bad eye infection and a severe bacteria skin infection. He is severely underweight and had nails longer then I’ve ever seen!
He has the sweetest/gentlest personality imaginable.
He wags his nub at any human he has approached
Pays no mind to other dogs but he hasn’t had a proper dog test but his interaction so far has been great!
His condition is treatable but will take time with medication and special baths. He will likely be on eye meds for the rest of his life.
This boy deserves a chance to know what love is! To know what kindness is.
The photos reveal how terribly this dog has been neglected – his ribs are showing, his eyes are filled with goop, and his coat is in poor condition.
Information to help
According to the shelter, this dog is currently being fostered at their veterinary hospital.
