Not every dog is perfect, but every dog deserves the perfect home. Melvin was hours away from being put to death in a high kill shelter. Melvin was picked on by other dogs, and had severe wounds, in addition to a severe skin condition. He has been receiving on going medical attention, but due to the neglect and having the conditions go untreated for so long, Melvin may never win a beauty contest. But he's not letting that stop him from trying to find a new home. He's a fun guy, who loves attention. His favorite toy is a deflated basketball, that he carries around with him! We love this guy. Maybe you will too. Melvin is fully vetted and microchipped too.
