LORAIN, Ohio - Those taking care of Herbie, the emaciated pit bull being nursed back to health at the Lorain Animal Clinic, say he is continuing to improve each day.
On Monday, Herbie's weight gain had slowed, "which is to be expected," clinic workers wrote on their website.
"Herbie would like to thank everyone for their gifts, but he has limited space to keep things," the post continued. "Toys, blankets, and treats can be donated to your local shelters in Herbie's honor. Herbie is looking forward to his appointment with the ophthamologist (Friday)."
Now up to 51 pounds, as he was only 25 pounds when found starving and near-death, Herbie's bloodwork is slowly improving. His veterinarian will have more information concerning his cataract appointment on Thursday.
Meanwhile, a $5,000 reward is being offered by the Humane Society of the United States for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for abusing and neglecting Herbie.
Herbie was found on Dec. 2 barely alive in the 800 block of West 11th Street. When authorities found him, he couldn't stand or open his eyes.
