A German Shepherd in Kansas City nearly froze to death on Sunday after his owner left him chained outside in brutal temperatures.
According to the Missouri German Shepherd Rescue, the dog, who they named Caesar was brought into the Kansas City Pet Project and he was freezing, starving and unable to walk and in a comatose state.
The person who brought the German Shepherd in told the KC Pet Project various stories about the dog. First, he said the dog was a stray, but then he said the dog was missing for a month.
The Missouri German Shepherd Rescue said he finally admitted the dog was his and that he’d been chained up in the backyard his entire life.
The dog was then voluntarily signed over by his owner and taken to the Blue Pearl Emergency Vet and transferred to the Plaza Animal Clinic for ongoing treatment and care.
There it was discovered Caesar’s eye might need to be removed, and he also has one severely injured back leg, little body fat, and cannot stand on his back legs.
His nails have also overgrown and curled under, due to never being cut, and he has no front teeth since he was constantly chewing on his chain.
While Caesar’s road to recovery may be long, rescuers are convinced that with tender loving care, his future is bright!
