A severely neglected ad starving dog named Hobo was found and taken to a pet hospital. The 40 pound skin covered, emaciated dog was weak, and was perceived to have only a few days to live. The mange-ridden creature however had the resilience to prove all wrong.
So he did.
Several months later, with lots of love, food, attention, and clipped nails, he is now identifiable as a 66 pound, 12-year old German Shepard, who can easily walk and carry on as most dogs. Thanks to his adoptive caretakers, who have a farm with 10 other dogs.

Monster who starved Hobo gets 25-year ban. From keeping animals.
…she argued Hobo had always been thin, that he was eating and drinking – and she was treating him with SHAMPOO.
She was given a 12-month supervision order as well as the ban.
Excellent evidence of why some humans should not be pet owners.
