#11 Boo

#10 Treasure

003--10-treasure-510814Treasure may be smiling now, but that wasn’t the case six months ago! She was found abandoned on the side of the road, unable to walk or move due to her severely matted fur and broken bones. Fortunately, she was adopted by a wonderful family and is all grins now!

#9 Alana

004--9-alana-510889Alana was dumped on the streets after her owners discovered that she had a breathing problem that would be expensive to treat. Due to a wonderful rescue organization, she has received the best possible medical care, and is now ready for adoption!

Alana’s story is sad, but just wait until you see the dog on slide 6!

#8 Cedar

Veterinarians said that Cedar had one of the worst cases of malnutrition they had ever seen, so they had to carefully re-feed him using baby formula. Now that he’s put on a few pounds, he is much happier and back to being his usual, playful self! What a happy ending!
