Some people are really not meant to be around any animals at all, if you have a dog then you have responsibilities, surely people are intelligent enough to realize that, and the consequences if you don’t?
The woman from South Carolina really just flaunted her responsibilities utterly and completely by starving her dog to the point that it would need a miracle to stay alive.
The dog has now been removed from her home and taken to a rescue organization in New York, he is getting the medical care he so desperately needs!
The Rescue Dogs Rock NYC said that a passerby, passing the woman’s home was the one that saw the dog and contacted the Animal Control of Laurens County…
This lovely and sweet dog, so badly mistreated has now been named ‘Champ’, he was so thin he could hardly move, super sleepy and on the brink of passing.
The rescue group said that they thought that Champ was about 16 months old and around 50 pounds, being a mastiff mix, he should be double that weight, and plus another 10 pounds!
The organization is desperately seeking donations for his care, he really needed a lot of care and they need all the help they can get to provide it for him.
Laurens County Animal Control Giles Gilmer said that the woman, Elizabeth James, has actually been charged with cruelty to animals and is due to face the court and judge in September.
We hope that she gets the justice that she really, for champ… deserves!
Giles also said that Elizabeth told the investigators that the dog actually belonged to her ex-boyfriend…
It is believed that she stopped feeding the dog after her and her boyfriend split up, she decided to deliberately stop feeding the dog and leave it to die, the poor boy..
Sheriff Don Reynolds said in a news release:
“Inhumane treatment of animals will not be tolerated on my watch. No animals should have to go without food and water”
