Laurens County Animal Control is trying to find a rescue to take in a dog found in disturbing condition.

The shelter said "Maggie" was saved by a Highway Patrol trooper after she was found emaciated and with maggots in her mouth.

The pup was taken to a veterinarian where she received treatment for severe worms and fleas.

On Thursday, Animal Control said Maggie has gained three pounds and her condition is improving.

Animal Control posted on Facebook saying they are looking for a special rescue to pick Maggie up.
