His weight is still the same (5.6 pounds) as it was on intake but it is our hope that he will soon start to slowly gain as amounts are increased . There has been an issue regulating Melvin’s glucose levels . He is being monitored very closely . He is currently on IV fluids , an antibiotic, and medicine for parasites. Melvin is extremely sweet and is very loving . Please keep him close to your heart .
Introducing Melvin, one of the 30 dogs found living in horrific conditions in Elizabethtown. This severely emaciated and neglected young boy was one of the numerous canines rescued and sent to Hardin County Animal Control. Melvin is now under the care of The Arrow Fund and will be given the opportunity to heal and experience love and care before being placed up for adoption.
