Memphis, TN : Sweet and Beautiful Little Bear Left Alone in a Field for Months

From: Angela  

"I hope by some miracle someone can help this poor dog. Please share far and wide so that maybe there will be a miracle for this dog. I work at 201 Poplar and get off work at 6 am. Each morning I pass a field near my home and would see a white dog lying in the middle of the field, all alone. 

I purchased a bag of dog food and would feed him each morning. It has taken months to win his trust, and finally I was able to slip a leash on him. He was so happy he rubbed his head against my leg as I led him to my vehicle. 

I took him to my vet and he has heartworms – but they will be treated!!   And, of course he is not neutered. I am glad at least that he is no longer in that field with no shelter.

The problem is that I have no place for him. I am absolutely willing to pay for his shots, neutering, and heartworm treatment if someone could possibly take him in.

He is a young dog, maybe 2 or 3 years old and weighs about 50 lbs. (although he is underweight  right now). He seems to be okay with other dogs and ignored the clinic cat.  Thank you."
