Meet Miracle ... So named because we think it must be an Act of God that he's survived. Miracle comes to us from Animal Care and Control of NYC, where he was turned in as a stray. He was emaciated and matted to the skin, with heavy dread locks throughout his coat. He was also suffering from a terrible gastrointestinal infection and horrible dental disease. It was originally thought he could have the parvovirus, but his parvo test came back negative (finally something in his favor). Miracle will definitely be a candidate for this year's "worst of the worst", a nomination no dog ever covets and for which there is no prize. Miracle is believed to be at least 10 years old and has endured a decade of neglect. He has now been shaved to the skin (revealing a skeletal frame) and has been hospitalized for several weeks on antibiotics and IV fluids. Once he regains sufficient strength, he will receive a much needed dentistry and at that time will also be neutered. In the meantime, he has been fully vaccinated and microchipped and has tested heartworm negative. Having survived by some Miracle, this special boy needs one more: a loving home in which to live out his life and be a pampered pet. if you would like to adopt or foster him, please click here to submit an online application or email to request one. Sometimes we all need a Miracle, perhaps this one is yours.
