Starving dog left to die in a filthy crate but the detective saw the dog rib is move. Animal Cruelty Division received a call about what seemed to be a dead dog lying in a filthy crate in Austin, Texas. When the officers arrived they found a pooch all covered in feces, severely emaciated and completely starved. Upon closer inspection, detective Ewa Wagner saw the dog rib move.
We realized the dog was alive. But just barely, so we rushed her to the Austin Animal Center where vets began emergency treatment. Officer Wagner told The Huffington Post. Her temperature was too low to even register on a thermometer and she wasn’t moving at all. We didn’t think there was any way she would survive. The vet also gave her a warm bath and gently used a blow dryer to help raise the dog body temperature. During those first few hours she decided to name the dog Sophie and realized she wanted to adopt this brave little survivor.
