3 weeks ago I adopted an old abandoned soul that someone discarded at a landfill in Tennessee.

Many good people came together and made it possible for George to find a permanent, loving home with me many miles away in Illinois. The paragraph below is what I first read on FaceBook about him, and my heart just twisted in pain when I saw his picture (the one on top of included image).


“I know this is a shot in the dark, but I work at the landfill in Murfreesboro & we have an older male (in tact) Hound dog roaming the property (pictures included). He is beginning to show signs of malnutrition, but is still the most kind & gentle soul…”
