Here is a video of him eating dirt to survive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vvV5syLt6U
Casey Lattimer of the Delta Humane Society of Louisiana decided to fight for him! Hounding law enforcement she was able to get the only judge in the county to concede to see Bones as more than just property. Bones was the first dog in this area of Louisiana to be seized from from an abusive owner. He was only 20 lbs when they took him from his abuser.
A little side note: The original owner of Bones ran for a local political seat believe it or not! He was arraigned and plead guilty. He was charged with $300 in fines, 60 day sentence in jail (now suspended) and was to pay Bone's medical bills. This story made local news in Louisiana.
Hopefully, his story helps many more animals and brings awareness to other situations that are similar to his. Too many are not able to be saved from this kind of life.
BONES WELCOME TO THE GOOD LIFE!
