sick-newfoundland-abandonedLook at this sweet Newfoundland.  Can you imagine someone just abandoning him in the Lincoln Woods in RI?  He’s sick and in need of medical help but was left to fend for himself.

Luckily, a Good Samaritan found the dog while walking her own and called animal control who picked him up.  The dog, named Marshal, who is about 4-5 years old, had a large tumor on his stomach and another on his shoulder.

He just looks so sad and pathetic, it breaks my heart.

The SPCA is trying to track down the owner of the dog who may face charges.

“We just want to make sure that if anyone recognizes the dog, please don’t hesitate to call the police, whoever did leave him in this condition to make sure they are prosecuted, there are plenty of rescues out there if you’re looking for help, if you need assistance. Please do not dump them in the woods anywhere,” says Officer Llink.

People who do this should face some serious charges. Dogs cannot fend for themselves, especially sick dogs who have been neglected so badly for so long. You just want to smack the hell out of someone and ask them what could they possibly have been thinking. Have they no heart at all?? Look at this dog! OMG! It just makes me so angry…

I found an update on the sweetie and it seems he is doing pretty well, on antibiotics, eating and will have his tumors removed. Definitely hoping this guy recovers and finds the kind of home he so deserves after the tough time he has been through. 🙂
