But i am happy to report that she is now in the very good hands of my friends at ARWNY. 

Here is "Wish" at ARWNY more pictures of her and more info –
http://www.akitarescuewny.com/welcome.htm


I talked to one of my friends from ARWNY tonight and she said that "Wish"- the Akitas name, so far, she can only be fed by hand tiny amounts, her stomach can't hold much. She is getting fluids -- the more info I get, I'll let you all know. A Vet Tech/Wonderful breeder/volunteer of ARWNY's is going to foster her at her vet's office for ARWNY to get her strong and safe!! So me and ARWNY have high hopes that "Wish" will get her wish -- to live a healthy normal life with a happy ending. :)


This so sad and so Shameful that a person could do that to a poor animal. I couldnt look at her picture, it was bringing tears to my eyes. Its so very sad that we have to know that we have such heartless people in this world. So very sad. My heart just breaks not just because its a dog but its my breed that i adore so much.... :'( :'( :'( 

*But i am glad that she is now in the very good hands. :)

*My thoughts and prayers go out to this sweet girl, I am hoping she recovers with flying colors. I will keep everyone updated. :)

That article and the photos just broke my heart...and the reality of it is that things like that happen more often than we know.   Glad to see that she is in good hands now and on the mend.

It sure shows the strength of the breed to be that age and still hang on. I don't know how she didn't freeze to death out there this time of year! Thank god she was found and will get some good care.

Oh-my-freaken-dog! Now I'm crying at work.

When I was in high school my friends and I "liberated" a Neo in a very similar state after repeated calls to the SPCA got no results (and I'd do it again). He went to live on a friend's ranch up by Yosemite and had the best golden years a dog could hope for.

Oh how sad and horrible!
I'm so glad someone called in and she was found in time to be saved.
I hope she is able to live the rest of her life out in luxery and comfort.

akita_4_ever,

I know it just broke my heart to pieces when i was reading and looking at the photos. Its such a shame that we have to know that people are like this in the world and that they let this go on. Its so heartless and shameful!

vmimom2006,

I think it shows the strength of the breed as well, i think she really knew that someone was going to help her and that she had to hold on. I am shocked as well to see her surive in the freezing weather as well. I am so glad she is in good hands now. It really just breaks my heart to hear stories like these.

MastiffOverloa d,

I know what you mean i was crying when i read it, its so sad.

What a sweet thing you and your friend did for the Neo, its breaks my heart to know that we have people in the world that are so heartless and dont give a care about animals. Thats great that the Neo gets to live the rest of his life on a ranch.
