I've been waiting awhile to paint this Fursday's dog. When he first came to Haven of the Ozarks, he was in such bad shape that I wasn't sure what he'd even look like when he was healthy. I've been waiting for an updated photo and for him to be listed for adoption.
Back in August a volunteer found this poor guy dumped on the road in front of the Haven. He was missing large sections of fur and he just cried an awful, whaling noise all day. They named him Rocky Road. The name fit their junk food theme at the time but it also fits him in so many other ways. While he looks miserable here, I can't help but think that he was relieved to be there and getting help.
Of course the Haven got him the vet care he needed and on the road to recovery. Within a few days he was already feeling better. Here he is enjoying a rawhide and you can see that his hair is starting to grow back.
And by September he was feeling well enough to play!
Rocky Road is feeling great! He's super playful and what hair he does have is soft and shiny. We hope that once he is all better, we can find him a perfect new home!Posted by Haven of the Ozarks Animal Sanctuary on Tuesday, September 15, 2015
It's certainly has been a rocky road for this poor guy. Despite his past, he's a sweet, friendly guy. He's getting really close to ready for a home. Wouldn't it be awesome if one was waiting just for him?! If that's your home, head over to Haven of the Ozarks to adopt Rocky.
