A dog who refused to move from a specific grave in the Kibbutz Gezer cemetery has been saved from starvation by Let the Animals Live, which is slowly nursing him back to health and looking for a new owner.

The abandoned dog, found late last week, is believed to have been the pet of a Gezer resident who died. The Komorovsky family reported to the animal rights’ organization, which sent Zvika Tamuz to investigate.

He found that the dog, whose ribs were visible and whose ears were bleeding and covered with flies, barely raised his head, and when offered water, he drank as if he had not had water for a long time. When he was picked up and attached to a leash, he fell, but he was able to wag his tail halfheartedly.

Let the Animals Live said they thought he had so missed his owners that he felt there was no reason to live.

The dog has no chip under his skin to identify him.

Anyone who recognizes the dog or is ready to adopt him should call Ilan or Etti at (03) 624-1776, ext. 2 or 5.
