An abandoned dog was found tied up outside of a Georgia church weighing about half of what it should normally weigh.
Animal control was called and they reached out to Angels Among Us Animal Rescue (AAUPR).
AAUPR posted heart breaking images of the pup on their Facebook page.
The dog, now named Odysseus, is thought to be a boxer mix around two years old, but officials are uncertain of his breed due to his emaciated state. Healthy boxers should weigh between 55 – 70 pounds.
Odysseus is being treated for extreme malnutrition at a local veterinary hospital around-the-clock.
In a Facebook post last Monday night AAUPR said, “Odysseus is doing remarkably well, given his current condition.” This sweet pup still has a long way to go to a healthy recover, but his future is looking bright. “Odysseus is currently on a feeding plan to help him stay on the right track and get his body the nutrients he so desperately needs. He's eating very well too!”
This starved dog rescued outside of a Georgia Church is yet another victim of human neglect and cruelty. Hopefully the person at fault will be found and punished!
