A small dog in a shabby shack was saved from a slow death by animal welfare inspectors from DIOZ. The inspectors found the dog tied to a cow chain with a tumor and a severe paw wound. The dog was taken to a vet clinic and further examination revealed flea colonies, worms, bladder wall enlargement, and severe anemia. The dog is in need of blood transfusion and support to recover. The case highlights the prevalent issue of animal cruelty and the importance of reporting and animal rescue organizations.
