Shelter dog too terrified to eat or move – now she is on list to be put down



A terrified dog at a Houston, Texas, animal shelter is so terrified that she won’t eat or move. The 24-pound dog, dubbed Carly, is labeled “rescue only” and she is out of time.

Staff notes describe her terror:

“Carly remains having a tense body and lying on blanket most of the day. Will not get up for wet food or accept treats. She scurries out of kennel to move away from me. She doesn’t give direct eye contact and cowers when I am near. Carly seems to only eat when staff is gone overnight.”

According to Houston Animal Super Heroes, Carly was one of four dogs that was taken in at the BARC facility as part of a cruelty case. She was adopted, but a few days alter she escaped from a kennel and bit her new owner on the hand when she was being captured. Notes on the Facebook networking page state:

The bite was minor and no treatment was necessary. Carly was returned to the shelter by her owner, and due to this incident Carly will need a rescue to help her, or else she will not leave the shelter alive
