He doesn’t look too bad with his woolly coat on but take it off and this little dog is in a shocking state. He was a stray and was brought to us when he wasn’t claimed. We’ve called him Cristo and he’s a pitiful sight, emaciated and just skin and bone. He has sores all over him and his teeth are about the worst we’ve ever seen. Even so, Cristo smiles at us and wags his tail, he hasn’t become like this overnight but dogs are eternally forgiving aren’t they?
Cristo has wolfed his soft food down, it’s good that he is hungry. We’ve already wormed and treated him for fleas and he’ll go to the vet tomorrow. What he’ll do about those teeth we can’t imagine. His front ones at the top are missing anyway. After that it’s lots of t.l.c., good food and love. He is a charming little fella, when he first came in we fed him and then he ran straight to his bed (a big fluffy duvet) and curled up to go to sleep. Lots of love here Cristo, we’ll soon have you well again.
We’ll need help with Cristo’s vet bills and ongoing care – any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
