Here is our new cocker spaniel. He was a rescue dog. The previous owner abandoned him in their house when the moved off. He had went some time without eating, was underweight by 8lbs, covered with fleas, and hair was terribly matted.
Here is is 3 weeks later with us. Hair cut (albeit not professionally - keep in mind we had to scissor out tons of mats), washed, given comfortis (no more fleas), and 4 lbs heavier.
He is a great dog - house trained - natural retriever - loves his crate - and has the most laid back personality you can imagine
