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

Poor old man, Lars, was brought into BARCS after he was found living during a car alone. While we’re unsure much of his history or why someone would do that to him, we can’t help but attempt to make the simplest of however long he may have left.


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. then to top it all off in his adulthood , he gets abandoned during a 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 alittle mass on the lower eyelid. He has infected ears with discharge, 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 hindlimb 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 therefore the shape that he’s in. A full medical summary are often 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 rescue commitment within the meantime. We’ll be honest, we don’t skills for much longer Lars has, but we don’t want him to remain at the shelter any 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!

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.
