We recently received a call from a concerned citizen who had been told of two dogs living in a run down abandoned house. What we found when we arrived on the scene was gut wrenching. The house was destroyed on the inside on the outdoor pen was in absolute shambles. Apparently the owner of the home was admitted into a facility for health reasons and although a relative was supposed to be going around every few days to feed and water the dogs, after ten days of being left alone in the house they broke a window in order to escape. The cold was preferable to the stench and filth inside.
It was clear that these poor creatures were tormented. Their eyes pleaded for help. They were starved for affection, and they were begging us to save them. Our hearts ached. Ledger and Lilac are now safe and warm at HUA. They are overjoyed with their new living quarters, and they cannot get enough of the humans who adore and admire them. Ledger is all about the love. He soaks it up like a sponge. Even during walks he must stop and hug his humans every few minutes. He is a confident, joyful kid who positively prances through life. He gets along nicely with female dogs who are about his size, loves playing with his Jolly ball, and people who meet him declare that he is a “gentle giant.” That being said, Ledger is a big. strong boy who will benefit from firm, positive praise. We think he is an absolute prince of a dog.
