This is what happens when you don’t take care of the problem when it first starts. If you ignore it and just hope for the best, the dog will suffer just like this poor little guy. His former owners couldn’t deal with it, so they dumped him at the pound. Original thoughts seems to run in their family.
Laurie, an independent rescuer, volunteered to take this little one and get him better and find a home for him. I know he is not much to look at now, but wait till the medications kick in and a whole lot of love is applied. It will get better from here on out, in more ways than one.
