Austin howls and cries when he is lonely. He is a social boy and beams when you praise him or sit close to him.
Austin is a Chocolate Doberman Pinscher, 8 years of age and neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
Austin was found in horrific condition on the streets by a kind woman. Besides extreme obesity, the food he was eating was not nutritious, resulting in hair loss, dry skin, and itching. All attempts to trace his microchip ID to a previous owner were unsuccessful.
At the shelter, Austin is now eating premium food and he is on thyroid medication and improving a bit more each day.
Please share his picture to help him find a hero so he will never be neglected so terribly again.
