Terrified 3-legged dog urgently needs rescue in Florida

See also

A 3-legged dog in Levy County, Fla. is too terrified to move. In fact, if he could curl into himself an disappear, he would.

Because of this dog's extreme fear, he has been deemed "rescue only" at the Levy County Animal Control and he is out of time.

A volunteer who met this petrified pooch shares:

"I met him today, he is scared out of his mind. I started crying when I saw him! When i entered into the kennel, he peed on himself. I backed out and threw him hot dogs to try and get him to trust me. WE HAVE GOT TO FIND THIS DOG HELP ASAP!!"

Friday (tomorrow) is this dog's last day.

If help does not arrive in time, he will be gone forever...the overwhelming sense of dread, of bad things unknown, those things which plague him to the point of rendering him immobile - will become an actuality.
