What happened to Gwendolyn? On Saturday, the skeletal dog was found by a dumpster. She was alone, her ribs were exposed, and she was unable to even stand. Fortunately, Dallas Dog – Rescue.Rehab.Reform has stepped up to help.

And as it happens much too often, a string of questions remain unanswered as to how this happened to a dog who was adopted from the same shelter seven months ago and discovered yesterday by the trash dumpster unable to walk or even stand. Was she owned? Was she abandoned? Was she dumped?

Just months ago, someone had walked into the Texas shelter, adopted her and took her home. She was owned, she was chipped and somehow “she was discarded like trash.”

“A family did this to her. They adopted her from a DFW [Dallas Fort Worth Animal Shelter] shelter on April 7. She weighed 49 pounds when she walked out of that shelter, and weighed 18.5 pounds when they carried her lifeless body back in. That is a difference of 30.5 pounds in almost 7 months. Did the family ever love her Did they throw her to the streets right after they adopted her? All questions that need answers. That is where DogRRR Nation comes in. I have submitted an open records request. Once I receive those, I will start the DRIVE FOR JUSTICE for QUEEN GWENDOLYN,” the organization posted on their social media page.

Today, the dog named Queen Gwendolyn was wheeled out on a gurney from the shelter into a vehicle to transport her to the organization’s partner veterinary hospital for lifesaving treatment.

“She wagged her tail and kissed my cheek when I kissed her forehead. I told her (as I always tell our fosters) ‘Stay strong, Fight hard, and I will do the rest.”
