A skeletal dog, recently taken in at the Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control facility in Indiana, has died. The dog, estimated to be just 10 months to a year of age, is believed to have been confined to a small crate and denied food, failed to improve even with round-the-clock veterinary care.

On Monday, the animal care facility broke the news of the pup’s passing to Facebook followers, writing:

It’s with the heaviest hearts that we share our sweet guy has crossed the rainbow bridge. This sweet guy was such a fighter and beat all expectations we had for him when we met him just over a week ago. Our medical team provided the absolute best care for him and we are so grateful and proud of their dedication, compassion and sacrifices they made to be here to care for him around the clock. Once he took a turn for the worst last Thursday they knew it was bad. He received a blood transfusion Friday afternoon in hopes it would help keep him stable. Unfortunately, it wasn’t successful.

Expressing grief over the situation, but gratitude for the outpouring of support:

Our hearts are broken, and we know so many of you are grieving his loss too. We are so thankful for the overwhelming support we’ve received from our community and people from all around the world. Cases like this are so difficult on our staff and while we aren’t able to share most of them with you because of the nature of the investigations, we are so grateful for all the words of encouragement we’ve received over the past several days. You remind us of the good in the world.
