Neglected Dog Curls Up On Towel To Keep Warm After Owner Dumps Him And Drives Off

 The poor dog was in awful condition and in dire need of help.

A dog named Lincoln is now in good hands at Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter in Branford, Connecticut, after he was neglected and abandoned.

Lincoln was found sleeping on a towel during a parking zone on one among the coldest nights this winter season so far . He was in awful condition and in dire need of help.

Thankfully, an individual who spotted Lincoln while jogging within the area contacted the shelter for help. When animal control officers arrived, Lincoln was very scared and confused, which is understandable considering he was just thrown out onto the streets.

The poor pup was a minimum of 10 to twenty pounds underweight, had demoted mange, overgrown toenails, and had pressure sores from being previously crated for long periods of your time . His skin was extremely irritated, presumably from being forced to take a seat in his own urine and feces within the crate.

The Branford Community House has cameras on the surface of their building, which captured someone dropping off the dog the night before the jogger found him.

The shelter is now asking the general public for his or her help find the cruel one that dumped Lincoln and can offer a gift for any information that results in their arrest.

In the meantime, Lincoln is getting continuous care and has already drastically improved. The medicated baths and antibiotics are helping his skin greatly, and his feet are already beginning to heal.

He is already a special dog than when he was first rescued, but still features a while to travel until he are going to be available for adoption.
