Meet Ruth; she was found in Babe Ruth Park covered in wounds. The non-profit rescue transported her to their partner veterinary hospital where underwent life saving treatment. Radiograms reveal she had what appeared to be iron (or some other foreign substance) in her stomach and needed emergency surgery.

    That is so sad , it makes me want to cry.The piece of vomit of a person that did this deserves the same. Make them eat the rest of the collar and leash. Lock his or her ass up in jail and toss the key .Poor dog was either desperate to get free or starving… Obviously both
