Notes:

We just moved into a rental and this bush is in horrible shape. My landlord stated she loved the beauty it once had and was sad to see how the last tenants dogs left the plant. It is burnt from urine. Can it be saved by trimming it way back ? Does anyone know what type of plant it is? I potted it to try to help it.

    It’s hard to tell for certain without flowers. I’m guessing a cultivar of Euonymus fortunei perhaps (?), possible the ‘Emerald & Gold’? Check it out and see if you have match. If this isn’t a match, please post again with photo of flowers when it blooms. If this is my plant, I would trim away those dead stems and leave the healthy stems alone for now. Sorry, I don’t have any experiences to share about dog urine’s damage on plants.
    On the side note. I often buying plants from the bargain tables, and some looked stress, or almost dead even. If there is no disease, virus, etc… I place these plants in an area with morning sun and afternoon shade. Water them occasionally, then just let these recover on their own time table. It has been working out pretty well. Best wishes!
