Viewing pictures of dogs allowed to deteriorate to this condition not only breaks your heart, but overwhelms you with sadness and anger.

John was found lying behind a parked car in the streets of NY.

He was extremely emaciated, dehydrated, and his entire body was covered in dried feces.

This did not happen overnight. This poor boy was denied the basics for survival for quite some time.

How or why he ended up in such horrendous condition is unknown. He was taken to Animal Care and Control in NY who contacted Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn. They immediately stepped in and transferred John to their vet.

He is estimated to be about 18 months old and a mere 18 pounds, far less than the 60 or so pounds he should weigh, with a body temperature so low it barely registered and a deep cut on his neck.

He was unable to move but could blink his eyes. He was found with a black collar and silver choke chain so he must have belonged to someone.

Being just skin and bones, and despite his weakened condition, he still managed to wag his tail. He’s in a fight for his life now, and SCAR has no intention of giving up on him.

He is being provided IV fluids and heating pads and will receive the best of medical care. He will feel the love around him and hopefully that will give him the will and determination to pull through.

If you would like to donate to his medical care, here is thelink to the chip-in set up for John. All donations will be greatly appreciated.

Let’s all think positive thoughts for John with hopes that he will rally and start back on the road to a full recovery.
