Found emaciated boxer :( graphic pics in link
« on: July 14, 2011, 01:07:01 PM »
Anyone  that can help (this dog is in Illinois) or knows of someone who can or someone who may have lost a boxer that matches this boy?

Poor thing I really am hoping he makes it. We have emailed the finder for more info as he/she was very vague in the CG posting but if the dog is at AWL it will 9 times out of 10 get euthanized.

I just know someone must be missing him- most likely a long time ago based on his state...

Very sad...

Awwww I wish they would have contacted boxer rescue before taking him to the shelter. They probably had no way to keep him though. I hope that a rescue gets him out and gives him the love he needs and then finds him a home.

How sad.  :bigcry: I wonder if his seizure could have anything to do with how emaciated he is. Seems so cruel to say he can't/won't get  adopted out because of them. Can they contact a rescue?

I think they are trying. They are giving him 45 days I think and are getting him stabilized. I too thought that the seizures could be due to the state of neglect he is in. I recently became a volunteer for a group called Lost Dogs Illinois on Facebook and have been working closely with them to try to get lost dogs back to their original owners to prevent so many dogs from getting euthanized at shelters. That's how we got wind of this boy- He was found in Chicago, South Side- he is not microchipped :( and not neutered. However he's still in good spirits despite his issues so we think he may belong to someone.

Of course, we'd rather he go into rescue and at least a foster home to help him recoup and get better quickly- the shelter is no place for a dog as sick and skinny as him, its not going to do him any good.

 :fingerscrossed: from my end too, that we find his owner or a wonderful foster/new home!
