This poor dog looks like it has been so neglected. What's left of the hair on the tail is in dreads. It has a stick stuck to its back two legs. I tried to pull it off, but it's so matted in there, that it looked like I was pulling the skin off. It's missing a good majority of the hair on it's body, although it's still in full supply around it's face. The paws are what really kill me. The hair is so long it truly resembles the feet of the Grinch. The dog was panting so hard that I offered it a bowl of water which it proceeded to drink for a solid five minutes. We thought about giving him food too, but he vomited whatever he had eaten previously on my front porch (Keith, it's waiting for you...Yay!).
S/he is now contained in my backyard so that Animal Control can come get it. The deal is that they will come get him faster if we have him cooped up somewhere and faster to them is 2 hours quicker. Okay! In my backyard s/he goes!
My heart goes out to this poor guy. It is such a sweet dog; I hope some family gets to adopt it and give it a good home. And I hope Animal Control gets here relatively soon.
