GREENWOOD, S.C. -- — Officials with a South Carolina animal shelter say it has rescued a Great Dane who was so starved that, he ate one of his own feet to survive.
Police say the 6-year-old dog was tied to a metal pole without food or water bowl nearby. Police say the owners couldn’t tell officers how long the dog had been tied up or how long it had been injured.
Noah's Arks Rescue officials posted on Facebook that they rescued the dog, now named Luke, last week. The post also says Luke needs surgery on his leg, but can't undergo surgery until he heals from a respiratory infection.
