We were called by a Wagoner County Deputy the evening of January 7, 2014. He had found 5 dogs at an abandoned house near Coweta and needed someone to come help. A wonderful volunteer ran to help. (Thank you so muck Nina Pell) When she got there, a 6th dog was found locked in a bathroom. There were 5 German Shepherds and 1 lab with a chain wrapped around his neck twice and embedded.
The next day, Norman Cole for Lab Rescue, Karla Wilson and Mitch Points for GSR, went to the house to get the dogs. As we pulled each dog out, we were horrified at the neglect these poor babies were suffering from. The little lab was in so much pain from the 20+ feet of chain that he was dragging from his wounded neck. The adult GSD male was shockingly skinny. The adult GSD female had every rib, shoulder and hip bones showing AND IS PREGNANT!!!!!!!!! What I thought was a starving puppy locked in a bathroom turned out to be an extremely dehydrated, emaciated 2 yr old. Not more than 25 lbs. The 2 German Shepherd mix puppies didn’t seem to be in quite as bad a shape with their bellies full of worms.
Now is the time we really need your help to cover all the expenses that these awesome dogs will incur. Please like our Facebook page for more pictures and updates.
