Sad, neglected senior dog taken to shelter after being found alone inside of car

 Perhaps the saddest face I've ever seen

A neglected, senior dog was taken to a Baltimore, Maryland, animal shelter after being found living during a car. what's known of the sad dog’s story has been recounted by a shelter advocate on social media. The person writes:

Lars- 12 years, unaltered, male, 31 lbs After the poor old man Lars was found living alone in the car, he was taken into BARCS. While we’re unsure much of his history or why someone would do that to him, we can’t help attempting to make the simplest of however long he may have left. Adding: He has the saddest face, and honestly, it’s extremely hard to seem at him because our minds just can’t stop wondering, why? Why would someone do it? And how? As a senior boy- and by the looks of it- we will guess he’s probably never had a really good life. ThenWorst of all, after he became an adult, he was abandoned in the car. Despite being abandoned and neglected, Lars has maintained a mild and sweet demeanor.


Lars’ maladies include:

Upon examination, our vets noted that Lars has dental disease, entropion of the lower eyelid, also as a little mass on the lower eyelid. He has infected ears with discharges, a cardiac murmur, a big flea infestation, and as a result, flea dermatitis, alopecia, and scabbing everywhere his body. He also features a dermal mass on his hip and hind limb ataxia, causing him to mostly slide his legs along when he walks. And a word about his sweet personality: Our vets also noted that he was friendly, gentle, and cooperative throughout the exam, despite how extensive it had been and then the shape that he’s in. A complete medical summary is usually provided upon request. The shelter’s, stray hold, and an invitation for help: Because Lars was found during a car with no owner present, he's on a compulsory stray-hold period until COB 10/21, but we might appreciate having a rescue committal in the mean time. We’ll be honest, we don’t skills for much longer Lars has, but we don’t want him to remain at the shelter more than necessary. He should be as comfy and as happy as possible, and have the prospect to retire, regardless of how short it'd be. Please allow us to know if your organization can help! Helping Lars This dog has survived, despite the chances stacked against him. He needs and deserves the absolute best that life has got to offer for what remains of his time.

    "In" a car, not "during" a car.
