They Moved And Left Their Dog Behind, Tied Up In The Cold Without Food. So He Ate Metal To Survive

A family moved away a few days before Christmas, leaving their dog behind at their home in Detroit, Michigan. They abandoned him in the backyard, chained up in the cold without food or water.

Neighbors discovered the dog, named Tad, and called Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue for help. When rescuers arrived, the dog was starving and barely alive. He was so hungry that he had resorted to eating scraps of metal and carpet to survive.

Tad needed a blood transfusion because of internal bleeding, and he was also covered in ticks. He had blockages in his digestive system from eating all of the garbage that he was surrounded by.

Thankfully, Tad is now getting the help he needs and is on his way to recovery. Once he is healthy enough, he will be put up for adoption and will hopefully find a loving family to help him heal.
