Gavin Crowsley, UPS Driver, Rescues Emaciated Great Dane (PHOTOS) - Huffington Post On January 21, when UPS driver Gavin Crowsley first spotted a Great Dane named Phoenix, the dog was so emaciated that he mistook it for a Dalmatian. Phoenix was on a short chain without food, water or shelter. Crowsley, who was in the middle of his delivery route in Indiana, had to stop. "I could see every bone in his body," he told his employer. "He was just lying there. I knew if that dog didn't die from starvation, he was going to die from the weather. I didn't want to have a confrontation, but I couldn't just leave him there."
