Update on emaciated dog left alone for weeks in empty house

See also

Charlie Brown, the dog left inside of an empty house in Rochester, N.Y., for several weeks, is still alive and he has been given a new name - Jack Frost.

On Tuesday, Jack Frost will be leaving the 24 hour emergency clinic and heading back to the East Ridge Animal Hospital.

The most recent update on the courageous dog states:

Jack Frost is doing well. He received his blood transfusion during the night. His body temp has dropped a little over night and his blood sugar is still low but overall he is doing better than expected. We hope to transfer him back to East Ridge late morning/early afternoon and will take more photos at that time.

Though the dog was too weak to move, stand or even raise his head when he was initially found, he is now wagging his tail and can get on his feet for short periods of time.

Jack's prognosis remains guarded, but things are looking up.

Donations for Jack's veterinary care are being collected through his rescue agency.
