Neglected dog recovering in Pasco County

Posted: Updated:
NEW PORT RICHEY (FOX 13) -

A severely malnourished and neglected dog is in need of help. "Gwendolyn" was found in Pasco County in pretty bad shape. She has a severe upper respiratory infection, painful swollen paws, and intestinal parasites among other troubles.

She was going to be put down by animal services, but a non-profit rescue group "Rugaz Rescue" took her in.

They say despite her pain and extreme neglect, Gwendolyn is a sweet, gentle dog with an incredible spirit, and they hope to find her a home.

"She is one of the worst starvation cases I've seen, but Gwendolyn just has an incredible spirit," said Rugaz Founder & Director Devilyn Saunders.

The rescue group says it is in need of donations to help pay for Gwendolyn's care. If you'd like to help, go to www.RugazRescue.com.
