What they found was heartbreaking—an emaciated dog stuck on a balcony three floors up. Turns out, this poor dog had been left alone outside for a whopping three weeks. No food, no water, just the loneliness of being abandoned when the owners vacated the property.

Other people in the buildings spotted the neglected dog and notified local authorities. They threw food up to her, and some even climbed a ladder to reach the balcony, giving a little relief to the hungry pup.

“The dog was reported to be on the balcony for at least three weeks but started to show severe emaciation recently. The dog was then removed by a seizure warrant and transported to the Houston SPCA for medical evaluation,” the police station wrote on Facebook.

Even though all of her ribs were visible, indicating she was extremely hungry after being left alone, her spirit remained strong as the tiny dog willingly went with the rescuers.

She is being cared for by the Houston SPCA and will hopefully recover completely. Although the investigation is still underway, officials stated that "once completed, it will be handed over to the Harris County District Attorney's Office."

People were really outraged when they heard about this cruelty. The community hoped the folks who made the pup suffer would face charges that matched what they did.


Grizzy's Hood News, spreading awareness and making a change, shared an update with the caring folks who supported the case.

“UPDATE! Yesterday, some guardian angels went up on a ladder to feed the pup and give it water. When they went up there, it was noted that the poor dog was surrounded by feces and was underweight.

"An investigation with local law enforcement is underway, and the SPCA picked up the dog today! Thank you to all the Hood News Peeps who helped get the word out and made this happen."Grizzy's Hood News stated.
