Louisiana – An adult Great Dane was found weighing a dismal 46 pounds.
A dog of his breed and age should weigh well over 100 pounds.
A dog so thin that the veterinarian who provided emergency treatment stated that he had not seen a dog so thin in 40 years of practice.
A dog so thin that being alive defies logic.
This dog has been given the name of Chance…
Chance because those who have found him are going to give him a chance at life – unlike whoever threw him away in the condition that he was discovered in.
Chance was found alone in a rural area just one day ago.
is believed that he was dumped – left to died a miserable death to starvation and the elements.
That won’t be the case – whoever did this to Chance will probably never know that their dog survived.
But then again, they probably wouldn’t care.
Chance is a fighter and he has a following of rescue angels who are fighting alongside of him.
A Facebook page has been created – already there are over 900 followers of the “Giving Chance a Chance” page dedicated to tracking this starved dog’s progress.
Donations are being collected for Chance’s care – he is suffering from heart worms, hook worms, malnutrition and skin issues associated with starvation.
Chance’s rescuer’s are using a PayPal account (Justice 4 Justice) for veterinary funds. If you are interested in making a donation, you can click here to access the site.
Chance was someone’s throw away dog – we may never know why.
Why someone allowed Chance to deteriorate to a state so close to death. Why someone would turn their back on his suffering and abandon him in the middle of nowhere.
We do know this – Chance is a survivor with an incredible spirit and will to live – please send this abused dog your positive thoughts for a full recovery.
