Arrival Story: Meet ELVIS, the seven to eight year old Springer Spaniel mix with a sad story. His owners moved away after foreclosure and left him behind all alone living in the backyard of their vacated house. It turns out after we spoke to his former owners, that Elvis had been abandonded at their home two years earlier by a prior family who asked them to dogsit while remodeling their home, then never came back to get him. So poor Elvis is now wondering why the people that he gives his heart to, keep abandoning him.
Bio: He is such a good natured and sweet boy. When we met him, fleas were crawling over every inch of his body, and he had endured this type of neglect for so long that his skin was raw and red from the constant scratching. The poor boy was in such ongoing discomfort that he had scratched himself nearly to the point of bleeding. After we got rid of his fleas, his skin is still quite pink and raw and the vet says it may take awhile for his skin to return to health. Good nutrition and some supplements for his skin and keeping him flea free is an absolute must. We had to shave him down because he was so matted so right now he has a brand new puppy cut for summer (we think he even looks younger with his puppy cut, awww, how cute!) Is there anyone out there willing to give sweet Elvis the home of his dreams?
