When a Good Samaritan tipped off Chicago’s Anti-Cruelty Society about a little dog shivering out of doors with a matted coat, rescuers had no idea what they were in for.
Timberly’s elderly owner had fallen ill and was unable to care for the little dog. It was unclear how long he’d been left outdoors and neglected, but that was about to change.
Upon surrender, rescuers started shaving the thickly matted coat. The mats were so tangled, a professional groomer was called in to finish the job.
Timberly is warming up to ACS staff, and it may be some time before this guy is ready to go to a forever home. You can send donations to The Anti-Cruelty Society to help dogs like Timberly in the Chicago area get the help they need. Wishing a speedy recovery to this special dog.
