CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Leaders with the Charleston Animal Society say they had to give a dog a blood transfusion after she was found tied to a fence believed to be dead.
CAS officials say say the chow mix was found covered in fleas and ants, unable to stand and emaciated.
According to officials, she is in guarded condition.
"Sometimes the bone marrow doesn't respond to the blood transfusion. We should know more in two or three days," Charleston Animal Society Senior Director of Veterinary Care Lucy Fuller said Wednesday.
Investigators are now searching for her owners.
