While General was able to win some difficult battles in recent months, sadly, he lost the war to his emotional scars. His story is full of heartbreak, hope and then more heartbreak. From the time he was six weeks old, General lived happily with his owner. But then his owner died, and five-year-old General's life was turned upside down. His owner's family put him outside in a pen and didn't feed him. Neighbors called animal control, and General was taken to the Bertie County Humane Society shelter in North Carolina on September 2nd.
