15 skeletal great Danes are & # 39; adopted & # 39; by the king of Thailand after being discovered close to death on an abandoned breeding farm
- The neglected owner left 15 dogs without food in Pathum Thani, central Thailand
- The Thai king Rama X has adopted all 15 animals and bears all costs
- Their bones stuck out of their skin when volunteers arrived yesterday
- Dog and two puppies died in a cage on Sunday before volunteers could arrive
The king of Thailand has adopted 15 skeletal Danes & # 39; after the Thai authorities rescued them from hunger at an abandoned breeding farm.
The neglected dogs lived in the house in Pathum Thani, central Thailand, before the owner fled a few weeks ago.
Because no one cared for them, they were not fed well and lost so much weight that their bones poked through their fur when found by authorities.

The dog owner fled from breeding a few weeks ago and said that she was unemployed and therefore could not afford to feed them. Volunteers were informed of the plight of the emaciated dogs and arrived on Sunday to save them. They are now recovering with Watchdog Thailand
The animals were clearly not fed in weeks and suffered severe malnutrition. A female dog and her two puppies died in a cage on Sunday before they could be rescued
Volunteers were made aware of the fate of the dogs and arrived home on Monday to save the animals and give them a good meal.
They are now recovering with Watchdog Thailand helpers and have even been & # 39; adopted & # 39; by King Rama X of the country, who heard about their treatment and ordered his family to finance their recovery.
A spokesman said: & # 39; We have received a royal order from His Majesty the King. His Royal Highness has instructed a delegation to adopt the dogs at the Animal Welfare Division. & # 39;
Two large Danes can be seen upstairs in a cage. When Watchdog Thailand found the dogs, they were all locked up after the owner closed her breeding with financial problems
Relatives who lived in the neighborhood said that the property had been run as a dog farm for many years until the owner was closed due to financial problems and cruelly left the animals.
She decided to report to the foundation because the Great Danes lived in such a terrible condition, causing a female dog and her two puppies to die in a cage on Sunday.
The volunteers arrived at the house on Monday around 2 p.m. and found 15 skinny dogs locked in cages suffering from severe malnutrition.
Through their ordeal, the 15 malnourished great Danes now have a royal friend. The King of Thailand, King Rama X, has promised to adopt the poor creatures for the costs of their treatment, food and ongoing care.
The police who have restored the famished dogs, pictured above, will be punished under the Cruelty Prevention and Animal Welfare Act and a police investigation is ongoing
They also met housekeeper Nui, 50, who said that the relative of the dog breeder asked him to take care of the property. He then agreed to cooperate in the rescue.
Veterinarian Kangwan Thirathamrong fed and treated the dogs before they were moved to the Animal Center of Livestock Development to promote their mental and physical recovery.
A veterinarian has now treated and fed the dogs and they have been moved to the Livestock Development Animal Center to promote their recovery
The vet said: “The owner claimed that she did not hurt the dogs and fed them, but because she is unemployed and has financial problems.
& # 39; All rescued dogs needed further care for recovery at the animal center. Then we will see if the owner is financially ready to take them back, but if not, we are looking for dog lovers who want to take care of them. & # 39;
A spokesperson for Watchdog Thailand said this morning that His Majesty the King instructed his family to adopt all Great Danes in the Animal Welfare Division.

In the meantime, the former owner is confronted with a punishment under the Cruelty Prevention and Welfare of Animal Act after the police started investigating.
