Hubble, the emaciated dog whose plight galvanized animal lovers around the world and prompted city officials to beef up how they handle animal abuse and neglect cases, has died.
NMDOG, the Rio Rancho nonprofit that was paying the vet bills for Hubble, announced that he had died on its Facebook page.
"RIP our Hero Dog HUBBLE," the organization posted. "I am so sorry Village ... but I am without words. Please allow us some time to grieve."
