Update 1/20/14: Burdock was rescued by It's A Pittie Rescue - her name is now Betty.

A skeletal, partially blind dog is desperately in need of help in Chicago, Ill.

The dog, dubbed "Burdock," arrived to the Chicago Animal Control as a stray and she became available for rescue on Saturday; she is in pitiful condition.

Every bone on the senior dog's body is painfully evident and she is blind in one eye - according to notes on her profile, she also has a growth of some type on her back.

Burdock's sad condition has her designated as "rescue only."

Please take a moment to help Burdock find a rescue agency which is willing and able to take her in.
