Animal rights activists in Brockton, Massachusetts were appalled: they had never before seen a dog in such wretched condition who was still alive. The animal had obviously been roaming the streets with open wounds. It took some time until allowed them to get close enough to be able to examine him. Only then did the full extent of the horror that this dog had gone through become apparent.
They washed the dog and his wounds. During the examination, they determined that he was probably about a year old. But he only weighed 15 lbs, dangerously little for an animal of his size. He must have really gone through something terrible and now just needed some love and proper food.
