The dog, dubbed "Autumn, " by her rescuers, is now being cared for by the Stevens-Swan Humane Society.
On Friday, the shelter noted that the dog, who is between three and four years of age, has a GI tract which is "full of bones." The gaunt boxer-mix weighs a meager 26 pounds, but is recuperating.
Over the weekend, Autumn continued to improve. Her tail is wagging and she is able to eat and drink normally.
The shelter stated:
Autumn is unbelievably friendly and trusting of people.
There is a reward offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for Autumn's condition. Anyone with tips or information is asked to call: (315)738-4357.
