Standing alone, behind the locked gates of a cell phone tower on Sunrise Mountain, an abandoned, starving Doberman Pincher was discovered.
The dog, now known at Sonny, had been left alone for too long – he had a painful gash on his neck and his body showed the signs of long-term malnutrition.
In fact, when he was finally discovered, he weighed a dismal 35 lbs – half of what a dog his age and size should weigh.
But Sonny was discovered – employees of the cell phone tower company brought him food and water and then removed him to a local animal shelter.
The shelter then contacted Doberman Rescue of Nevada for help.
Sonny is now receiving the veterinary care necessary to help him recover from both his neck wound and his emaciated condition.
The rescue volunteers report that Sonny is still happy and friendly – despite what happened to him – despite being let down by the people that he had once relied upon for care.
