It is a story we first brought you last month after a puppy was found in terrible condition, abandoned in Grundy, Virginia.

Now, the puppy named Watkins is undergoing treatment at the Virginia Tech Veterinary Hospital for a very severe skin condition. 

Stephanie Smith-Justus is the president of the Buchanan County Humane Society, and tells us Watkins is still in critical condition, and is being fed through a feeding tube.

She is expecting to bring him back to Grundy on Friday so he can continue to recover. 

Watkins has become sort of a local celebrity as people have rallied around him, he has his own Facebook page with more than 6,000 likes. 

Watkins also has a go fund me page has raised more than $24,000  to help with his recovery. Smith-Justus tells us donations have been coming in from all over the world.
