Guilford County, NC - Chamberlin is a dog struggling to survive. His photos show a body devastated by starvation. A frail dog, reminiscent of Courage, the starved German shepherd, and Lucian, the abandoned Pit bull. A body consisting of bones and skin, nails on his paws so long that they have curled and grown back into his pads - a dog ravaged by the effects of extreme neglect.
Chamberlin was literally forgotten. Deprived on the one thing that dogs crave more than anything - human attention. Deprived on the two things necessary for survival - food and water. Deprived of one the most basic of necessities - shelter.
Chamberlin was discovered in a yard when overgrown grass was being mowed. Long forgotten by those that were supposed to care for him, the dog languished in the yard, his body so malnourished it could no longer hold him upright...he had literally disappeared from sight.
Chamberlin is currently at the Guilford County Animal Shelter receiving the care that he desperately needs to survive. He has undergone surgery to close pressure wounds. He is being treated for an upper respiratory infection, and an ear infection. He is receiving two other things that are critical to his survival - food, to nourish his weak body, and love, to bolster his spirit.
How an individual can forget another living being is beyond comprehension. Thankfully for Chamberlin, he is now safely in the hands of caring people. He has food, water, medical care, shelter, and he is surrounded by love and kindness.
Watch his video - it is painful to see the condition of his weak body, but witnessing his sweet spirit makes it bearable. His tail shows evidence of his forgiving spirit. His eyes are bright with his will to survive.
Thanks to Susie's Miracle Fund and the Guilford County Animal Shelter, Chamberlin is able to receive the medical attention necessary for his survival. Please hold Chamberlin in your thoughts and prayers and send this forgotten dog all of the love that he has been denied in his life.
