Animal Rescuers Become a Sick, Abandoned Dog's Many Best Friends
LA Times ^ | July 12, 2012 | Rene Lynch

The German shepherd was lashed to a fence inside an abandoned junkyard. With no food and water, he began drinking his own urine. Part of his right ear was torn or bitten off. A too-small collar was embedded into his skin. Lesions and scabs dotted his back where there should have been fur.

When an unidentified good Samaritan brought the dog through the front door of the Emergency Pet Clinic of San Gabriel Valley last winter, a stench filled the room. Dr. Jeffrey Patlogar took one look and thought the animal needed to be euthanized, immediately, to end its suffering. But almost as quickly, the vet noticed something else.

I'm no PETA fanatic, but scum who abuse animals like this should be subjected to the very same treatment x 10!

Beautiful story. Bless those who rescue we the abandoned.

I'll have to figure out how to pray for the soul of the animal who tortured that poor boy. He has a lot to make up for.

That’s a real tear jerker!

God bless that lady and her hubby for giving that poor sweet doggie a home.

I too am not a “peta person” but people who abuse animals like that should really just be shot. For sure they are abusive to people too.

Thanks for sharing...even if it was a little blurry. :)

Thank God for the multitude of people that helped this poor old guy. (and all animal rescuers)

Way to go Sid/Rambo! You just proved that a beautiful spirit can be more important than a beautiful body.

“For sure they are abusive to people too.”

I fear you are correct. The abuse of young children, the elderly and other defenseless people seems to be at an all time high.

I don’t know what has happened...the scariest animal on earth is two legged.

That really tears at the heart strings. He seems to have a great disposition too.

I think I’ll go hug my Shepherd. I just love him.

I adopted an old dog (11 years) two years ago. With plenty of good grub, medication, and the occasional bath, she has grown into a healthy, beautiful dog. She looks like a miniature Lassie.

Elderly dogs can be wonderful.

Thanks for posting. It’s been almost a year since we had to put our GSD rescue down. We haven’t been able to find a replacement for him yet, but we’re looking. Remarkably enough, my 3year old still remembers her Kramer and will ask if Jesus is taking good care of him.

I have an older dog also, I prefer them over the younger ones. She was supposed to be twelve but the vet said no way, more like eight or nine and in excellent health.

If you are looking for a German shepherd, please consider a rescue in your area.

I found out today a “too old” female went from a shelter overnight box to a million dollar home on the beach: http://gsroc.org/available_dogs_detail.asp?ID=2427

We’ve looked, but with a 3 year old I’m not about to bring an adult dog into the family. We’re trying to find a puppy, and have been keeping tabs on our local rescue groups to see if they get any.
