Life is not always a bed of roses. Sometimes, problems may arise and relationships may go sour. But what’s worse is that some people use these instances to justify animal abuse. Sadly, such was the case with this poor husky who spent nearly two years living on a leash, without proper access to food nor water. According to reports, this horrible treatment was his owner’s way of taking revenge on his ex-wife.
Apparently, the owner of the dog got him as a present for his wife. Unfortunately, she filed for divorce not long after, which prompted the husband to direct his anger towards the poor pup. As a result, he tied him up on a leash and stopped feeding him altogether. It was intentional negligence in its purest form. When rescuers from the Animal Rescue and Kare of McCurtain County (ARK) found him, he was merely a “bag of bones.”

When rescuers found him, he was merely a “bag of bones” with hardly any fur on him
The rescuers transported him to the Pet Angels Rescue in Guthrie, Oklahoma at once. Recalling their encounter with the poor pup, it was simply heartbreaking according to one of the rescuers. Nonetheless, much to their surprise, the dog didn’t even resist when they arrived to fetch him. In fact, it was like he had been waiting for someone to save him all along. He was definitely ready to go.
Rescuers brought him to the Pet Angels Rescue in Oklahoma where he received deworming and other essential medical treatment
The little fella slept for the entire two-hour trip to the shelter. Upon his arrival, he was immediately given a medicated bath to help soothe his skin. During his stay, he also received multiple rounds of dewormer. The good people over at the shelter named him Finn and gave him all the love, care and freedom that he deserves.
