Shelter receives « skin on the skeleton », they are shocked

Shelter staff were left in shock when this dog arrived at their centre. He was just “bone and skin.”

Malnutrition in dogs is caused by lack of proper food. A dog that lives on the streets usually survives by eating available scraps of food.

The poor creature that arrived at the shelter needed urgent help.

Just over a week ago, the Danville Humane Society in Danville, Virginia, USA, took in one of these suffering dogs. It was a dog with very visible ribs. His physical condition was truly heartbreaking.

This dog was therefore rescued by the charity like any other stray dog.

HoweverHe did have a collar, so it proves that in some cases these dogs once had a home. In the past, he was indeed the pet of someone who abandoned him for one reason or another.

No one can believe he had the worst owners in the world.

Do you know this dog? He was adopted as a stray and brought to us. He is literally a skeleton with fur and skin,” wrote shelter staff.

This cruelty is usually due to a lack of understanding and commitment. But also a lack of empathy on the part of the person responsible for the animal with regard to its nutritional needs.

Every dog needs a different diet to maintain a healthy body and thrive. However, this diet had a family and left him on the verge of starvation. Their anger really knows no bounds!

The animal was therefore taken in by members of the shelter, who were obviously concerned about how weak and skinny the adorable dog was.

The vet quickly took him in to treat him. These volunteers also took the opportunity to describe the feelings they had when they saw him.

It was sad to see the state he arrived in.

Fortunately, the dog seems to be recovering satisfactorily and has already started eating, which is a very good sign. Moreover, as the shelter vet explains, the dog has been treated for internal parasites.
