After her tenants left without the without even giving a notice, the landlord in New Hampshire went to investigate the abandoned apartment … and discovered what they had left behind.
The landlord found a little shih tzu, who barely even looked like a dog at all. He had clearly been severely neglected, and his fur was so matted that he could hardly walk. They believe he was about 3 years old and sadly was blind and death from severely scratching due to all the matting. They was found bumping into things and attempting to eat whatever he could find lying around on the floor. The Londonderry Police Department responded to the scene and knew he needed medical care immediately.
“I don’t believe that the dog was abandoned for more than a few weeks,” Chris Olson of the Londonderry Police Department told The Dodo.” By all accounts, the dog is very gentle and affectionate with humans. There are no signs of physical abuse to the dog. It appears all of the ailments came from extensive neglect.”
They rushed the dog to the veterinary hospital and was treated for dislocated knee caps, infected skin and anemia. The next step was to shave of his matted fur and to get this dog well.
We are happy to tell you the tenants of the apartment, Jada Demas and Jennifer Moscardini, were later found and arrested for multiple counts of animal abuse as they DESERVED!
This adorable pup is in a foster home while he heals from his injuries and hopeuflly will find a loving home to give him the love and care his previous LOSER owners never did.
It’s not known whether the dog will eventually go up for adoption or not, but you can contact the police department through its Facebook page.
