Shamie (rhymes with Sammy) was rescued by the Angels in the nick of time after his owners abandoned him at the shelter. He was in terrible shape and was taken directly to the vet. Shamie weighs about 22 lbs. and is about 8-9 years old. When he was picked up by his foster family, his skin was in horrible condition (darkened, matted clumps, thinning hair, full of scabs, swelling and bleeding from itchiness) due to years of neglect and he's on multiple medications to help all of his infections. His ears were also infected as well as his eyes. He’s had an untreated skin infection for years (no parasites) and it’s taken a toll on his little body. His skin is inflamed all over and he lost much of his hair. Most of it is growing back now that he has somebody who cares for him, but it isn't certain whether or not it will all come back. The hair that is growing in is soft and beautiful. Because he has been so neglected, the vet says he has multiple rotted teeth that will need to be removed and he may have other medical conditions we won't know about until later. He will probably require a bit of time to heal (both physically and psychologically) before he's ready for his forever home, but he is available for pre-adoption. His foster home is working hard to help him heal and overcome all of his sickness and pain. And his little soul isn’t giving up! He is very sweet, craves attention, and loves to give kisses. He has a good appetite, is house broken and walks well on a leash. He may not have been around any other dogs and is still warming up to his foster brothers, but he has begun playing with toys for the first time and has started to act like a real dog again! For now, he's just resting a lot and focusing on getting well while he dreams of his forever home.
