Neighbors found a dog tied to a tree without food or water. They thought the dog, named Ganesh, was abandoned, but a man came outside minutes later.
They said: “We confronted him and his response was ‘that’s my nephew’s dog, he left him here months ago and I’m not interested in taking care of him’. Of course, they said “yes” and took the dog home to care for him.
South Florida animal control said that Ganesh might be put down given his condition, so they decided to take the dog on themselves…
“He has adjusted wonderfully to our animal home. We have three other doggies that have welcomed him sweetly to their pack and a kitty who warms up more each day that passes to his gentle attempts to be her friend,” they wrote on the GoFundMe page.
