Neighbours thought the dog house that had been dumped on their street and nailed shut was empty, but they were in for a surprise.
Inside was a very sad and sickly dog, covered in scars. He had been locked inside that dog house for days, nailed shut from the outside with no food or water. Ghetto Rescue Foundation in Los Angeles has claimed the dog, should owners not come forward after the standard animal control hold.
They have named him Walter Worthy Higgins and will posting more of his progress on their Facebook Page.
