NEW!!! Akita dog in poor condition abandoned at ARK

On August 25, an Akita dog was found collapsed after being abandoned at ARK in very poor condition.
Elizabeth Oliver and a staff member were the first to reach him, early in the morning. He was not wearing a collar or harness and has a very serious skin condition, which at first sight looked like nasty burns, especially on his face.

Elizabeth and staff were able to get him to a veterinary clinic. He was found to have a very serious scabies infestation and consequent inflammation. He was also severely dehydrated and possibly hypothyroidism.

We also discovered that he has not been microchipped, and is an approximately five year old intact male, rather thin at 31 kilos.  We have named him Argos, after a dog that recognized his owner after 20 years! We are still not sure if he is docile, or simply doesn’t have the energy to be otherwise.

Treating scabies takes time and patience. He will need topical antiseptics and antibiotics. He will also need oral medication and regular check ups. While we regret to have to ask, we really need your help to provide the medical treatment Argos so desperately needs.
