Her paw was nearly severed at the ankle and so rotten, he said in the Facebook video during Mimi's intake, "I can smell it from here."
But despite her staggering, raw pain, Mimi allowed Skow to lift her in his arms - the arms of a complete stranger.
The owner claimed he couldn't afford to treat the leg, which had obviously been rotting, unattended for a long time. He suggested Mimi be put down.
His last words? "Good luck to you."
Together, Mimi and Skow watched her owner drive away in that Hummer. Never to be seen again.
