Dog chews off own foot to survive

Every now and again a story touches my heart. And today it was this one. The poor dog was so hungry it ate its own foot! Why oh why don't people either feed their pets, or admit they can't cope and call the local shelter? I have a black Great Dane myself, he weighs more than me, I can't even imagine what this poor dog went through, and he's not out of the woods yet.

Starved Great Dane ate own foot to survive

The sick dog is not yet in the clear but those at the animal shelter caring for the canine say they "believe in miracles". Link to article. Link to shelter where he is being treated.
