URGENT HELP NEEDED!!
I desperately need help in getting this dog into rescue. I seized him from an address in southeast Raleigh on February 9, 2008. The vet assessed his body condition score at being a 1, a walking skeleton. He should be a blue Pit-bull, but he has so much hair loss throughout his body. He has no body fat, and is losing muscle tone. The vet notes says he is a very quiet and sweet dog and he likes being with people. He is only about 3 years old.
He has tested a strong positive for heartworms. He has been living on a chain in a back yard, and sleeping on the hard ground. He has open sores on both wrists, left ankle and his rear end. These are basically 'bed sores' from repeatedly sleeping on the hard ground and having no body fat to cushion his bones.
I am charging his 'owner' with animal cruelty, and he will be a guest of the "Wake County" jail, hopefully sometime this week.
Please help me in getting this wonderful sweet boy into a rescue.
