From Beverley of Gainesville, GA

We recently lost our beloved 12 yr old poodle to cancer. Our other dog was so lost without her that we decided to go to to find a new companion for him. I stumbled across this really pathetic looking dog who was extremely matted and badly in need of grooming. But there was something in his eyes that said "take me home". The day after we adopted him, he developed a high fever and a very bad cough. The vet diagnosed him with severe pneumonia along with infected ears and eyes. She was not sure if he would even make it. After days of hospitalization, intravenous antibiotics, a month on oral medication, lots of TLC and a good grooming he is now fully recovered and the most wonderful and loving dog. His naked little body is starting to grow and his tail NEVER stops wagging. My other dog also loves his new friend. I'd do it all again in a moment because everyday he shows me with a lick or a wag that he is so happy to be with us.
