Dog chained up for years and his neck had turned black from a heavy chain
Dog chained up for years and his neck had turned black from a heavy chain. But gets a rescue from woman in Mexico. It’s illegal to keep dogs chained with no one present. The dog’s neck had turned black from a heavy chain rubbing against it, and it was obvious she’d been on the chain for a while.
The woman called the Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico, and the county sheriff department took this poor dog into custody. That’s when they learned her owner was in jail on unrelated charges. NMDOG rescuers then took dog to the vet. Her skin was badly sunburned, and she had flystrike, a condition in which maggots eat away at the dog’s flesh.
