Hogarth is going to lose his leg after being found with matting so bad that it cut off the circulation of his right front leg, killing it.

The neglect suffered by Hogarth is nothing short of appalling - he screamed anticipating that all touch would hurt. In addition to losing his leg, Hogarth will need special skin treatment to treat the other wounds on his tiny body as well as a full dental due to severe dental rot.

Despite this horrific history, Hogarth has already begun to open up. He is sweet and (still) loves people.

Your support will cover Hogarth's multiple surgeries and several months of specialty care. You can bring happiness back into Hogarth's life.

I'm so happy that Hogarth received the help he needed! I would love to find out more about him and the possible chance of becoming his forever guardian, once he is ready to do so!

Hogarth’s story was heartbreaking. Yet, thanks to you, he was rushed into surgery and finally received the care he needed. With the dead leg gone, his rotted teeth removed (and the remaining cleaned), and his matted fur shaved, Hogarth has become a brand new dog! Happy-go-lucky, his tail is always wagging and he is excited to make new friends. Once the vet gives him the green light, he will be ready to find his forever home!
