|Oh that poor dog. At least he found someone who cared even if you could not do very much for him.
In a lot of places dogs who are confiscated for neglect or cruelty/dog fighting end up sitting in the pounds for months waiting for their owners' court cases to be ruled on before they can be relinquished, because they're considered evidence and then when they are finally released they are often euthanized. A lot of times they barely get any human interaction.
There are a few places that are working on creating programs to help these dogs. Here in Chicago a local organization has started a "Court Case dogs" program to train and work with these dogs and then help them find rescues once they are finally relinquished and allowed to be adopted out.
