Long story short.... IDR+ (the dobe rescue I volunteer with) just pulled a skeletal Doberman yesterday. He was found as a stray, in an alley by Animal Control.

If IDR+ had not stepped in quickly yesterday morning, this dog would already be gone. He's at the vet getting round-the-clock care, he's fighting for his life - somehow he's got enough spirit left to lift his head and eat canned food from our volunteers' hands.

For those of you that would like to help this little man out (he's been named Miracle) you may do so online at www.ildoberescue.com and clicking on "Support IDR" or by mailing a check to IDR, PO Box 435, Barrington IL 60011. Just note it's for the emaciated dobe from Gary Indiana.

I've included links to his photos... but PLEASE be careful. He's in the worst shape any of us have ever seen and the photos will upset you. But he's alive, and he's trying SO hard to survive.

If you can find it in your heart to help us, it'll mean SO much. He's got a long recovery ahead - if he even makes it at all - and we'll need all the help we can get.

can this be cross posted? Is there a blog or anything with more info?
See below - his story and updates are on Facebook. It's amazing how hard Miracle is fighting for life! And yes, cross-posting is allowed and welcomed! IDR+ just took on another emaciated dog about a week before Miracle so we'll need all the help we can get.

Posted this on my facebook status. Dekka I looked and the rescue has a facebook page with his situation on it.

Omg, that's horrible!! Winston was extremely emaciated when he was picked up, but not quite to the same extent... almost, though. It's so, so upsetting to see a dog in such condition. He'll be in my thoughts, and I hope everything will work out well for him! :(

That's AWFUL. I cannot believe he's still alive.

This is not something I would usually say, but has anybody contacted the media about this? Somebody might come forward with information as to WHO did that (even if it doesn't do any good...) and I'm sure that there would be a lot of donations coming in to assist with the vet care cost.
