Josie is a 1 year old border collie mix female. She was found emaciated in South Carolina, running down the street with a double choke collar deeply embedded into her neck. It is a wonder that she made it, and certainly a miracle. The collar had almost gone through her jugular vein! She underwent surgery on 8/27 to repair the damage and remove the collar.  


On top of the embedded collar, this poor sweet dog was also covered in fleas and extremely malnourished. It's hard to tell with her coat, but Josie is a walking skeleton at only 20lbs. We don't know where she escaped from, but it was surely hell on earth for this neglected and abused poor dog. 


Josie was featured as PoundWishes WeeklyWish and raised $1,715 for her medical bills. She has healed beautifully and was adopted this past Saturday (9/24/16), her new name is now Kona. We couldn't be happier to give her the second chance she deserves!
