LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Severely malnourished, Andrei the Giant has found love…and food after being rescued by the Shamrock Pet Foundation.

Someone found the Great Dane in this deplorable condition and the organization stepped in. Great Danes should weigh at least 115 pounds, but poor Andrei tips the scales at 73 pounds. When he was first rescued, Andrei couldn't even lift his head for a dog biscuit.

Currently this giant is undergoing a blood transfusion at Blue Pearl Emergency Pet Center. If you're interested in adopting or helping out with Andrei's care, visit the Shamrock Pet Foundation's website at www.shamrockpets.com.

WAVE 3 will keep you updated on Andrei's progress.
