Family Couldn’t Afford To Feed Their Dog Anymore, So He Wasted Away To His Bones

 The family had become homeless and were forced to live in their car. But by the time they surrendered their dog, he was hardly a dog anymore.

Roland (formerly referred to as Shorty) may be a Blue Heeler mix who was adopted from Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Texas about 2 years ago.



Back then, he was 2 years old and had an adorable chubby physique. However, his so-called “happy-ending” only clothed to be a turbulent tale of tragedy.



The shelter was certain a shock when Roland’s family walked in recently to surrender him. Roland was so gaunt he could barely get up – a far cry from his earlier glorious 40-lb stubby self.


His family explained that that they had been homeless for a short time now, and were forced to measure in their car.


The family claimed that they didn’t want to abandoning of their loyal and beloved pooch despite their inability to feed him.


They took the difficult decision to surrender him only they noticed the pressure sores on his muscle-less body and realized he was atrophy .




At 18 lbs, Roland almost seemed like a carcass at the time of surrender. He was severely malnourished thanks to extreme starvation. Considering his delicate condition, he was transferred to “Jamie’s Animal Rescue” for specialised care.


Due to his progressed emaciation, he was at the danger of suffering a asystole whenever he ate. therefore the workers had to follow a really strict regime of small meals and vitamins to assist stabilize him.


Roland’s recovery regime was painfully slow and crammed with many scary setbacks like vomiting bouts and immobility, but he was eventually out of the zone .


The rescue is now that specialize in his healing. He has already started taking walks round the neighborhood, and that’s very promising!



Roland may be a resilient fighter who didn’t let his misfortunes taint his spirit. His recovery is nothing in need of a miracle and he’s now trying to find a replacement forever home!


Adoption enquiries are often made through the rescue’s website here. Let’s spread the word and help Roland find a forever home.

  1. This is CRAP! If you're eating (and they were) you can ALWAYS give something to your dog. Would you starve your human children? Miserable pieces of garbage... how dare you. Besides, there are MANY places that offer food and help. This is disgusting.
