Ignored For 10 Years, Senior Dog Had Maggots Crawling In His Infected Skin

Ignored For 10 Years, Senior Dog Had Maggots Crawling In His Infected Skin

It’s been a quiet month for ANNA Shelter’s Animal Ruthlessness Division, and now they have their hands full with a dog who was in dire need of help.

Policeman Duckett was answering phone calls all day, but his last case turned out to be one of the most awful instances of forget they’ve ever seen.

The senior dog they absorbed, currently called Junior, has actually suffered tremendously, but is currently in good hands.

Dr. Crystal Franklin and her group at the ANNA Health Center-Erie analyzed the poor pup to come up with a treatment plan for him.

Tauna at Posh Paws Dog Spa concerned the sanctuary to groom him and slash off years of neglect.

His fur was so matted that he could not see or stroll, and he almost shed circulation in his legs from the knots being so tightly wrapped around them. It ended up creating severe infections to the point where his feet were loaded with maggots.

He was covered in his own urine and feces and reeked so terribly. His nails were overgrown, his stomach and feet were covered with urine burns, and he was missing all of his teeth except for one.

Junior, that is believed to be ten or older, remains in the treatment of the shelter’s wellness center, but they are currently looking for a great hospice foster to live with.

He is really feeling better and likes strolling about in the grass. He wags his tail and is incredibly friendly, but is still very sore and is on pain medications to control the pain.
