Abandoned dog in 'skeletal state'​

_44854567_hobo_pa226.jpg

Hobo is being looked after at the PDSA Hospital in Northampton

An abandoned German Shepherd dog was a "walking skeleton" when he was found, animal charity the RSPCA has revealed.

The RSPCA made an appeal for information after the dog, nicknamed Hobo by staff looking after him, was found in Little Billing, Northampton.

Hobo, who was found on 16 July, is believed to be between five and seven years old.

He had overgrown nails, was severely emaciated and had mange which caused him to lose almost all of his hair.

Hobo was found by a member of the public and taken to the PDSA Hospital in Northampton.

'So callous'

He is now receiving treatment and is eating and drinking well but will have to stay in hospital for at least a month.

Insp Claire Ryder, of the RSPCA, said she thought Hobo may not have been a stray for long as he would probably have been picked up before his condition worsened.

She said: "I have never seen such a mistreated dog, he really was like a walking skeleton.

"He must have been in agony for a long period of time.

"I shudder to think how someone could have been so callous as to let him get in this state.

"I urge anyone with information to come forward to help us find out where Hobo came from and how he came to be in such a terrible way."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA.

Totally agree....Fookin Barstewards....We had to give our German Shepard away when I started working away and that hurt but to see this one - don't know how people can live with themselves
Just shown the missus and it reduced her to tears

In limbo!
the person or persons who allowed him to get in that state need locking in a room and left with no food or water and no toilet shut the door and leave em to rot.

i hope that dog makes a full recovery will be nice to see pictures of him when he has recovered too.

they obviously didn't want the dog so why not just hand him over to the RSPCA before it got to that state :(

OMG...is that actually a German shepherd. Cruel bassa's whoever they are. I am not a dog owner but people that treat animals like that need a good effing hiding and then locked up.

I wouldn't waste my time making the effort not to feed the people responsible. Just line um up and shoot um.

Things like this make me ashamed to be human.

I had 2 ped bull mastiffs a few year ago I paid £600 4 each of them when my misses fell preggy I putt a add in the paper gave them away to a good home for free a farm with kids and ripped the KC papers up.

Its not hard to find a dog a home are take it to the shelter atleast I hope nature runs its corse and the owners get some fcuking Karma like cancer so they can drop to 4 stone like the dog did [email protected]
