Baltimore County, Maryland – A dog was so badly neglected before being abandoned that he was nearly unrecognizable as a living creature. The pup, dubbed Marley, was tied to a pole and abandoned before being found by county animal control officials.
On January 27, the Senior Dog Sanctuary of Maryland said:
We will never know what happened the first part of Marley’s life, the part before he was found by County animal service officers. We won’t ever know if he was loved or cared for; whether he had a name, a home, a best friend.
Given Marley’s pitiful appearance, it seems that he never received care before he was found. Beneath the layers of filth was a dog who had been hidden away for far too long…living in misery.
And a shocking secret was hidden beneath Marley’s matted fur…the circulation to one of his legs was cut off and it resulted in the loss of his limb.
But the real Marley has been revealed.
And now, life begins anew for this pup – gone is his filthy, matted fur, and gone are his days of being ignored and neglected. On Saturday, the animal welfare agency said:
Since his arrival here, Marley has learned to get along quite well without it and he runs and plays right alongside his other canine housemates!
