You Can’t Judge a Book By It’s Cover

Or a dog for that matter. Recently a little Dachshund mix was picked up after being dumped beside the road. He was so thin, hungry and very scared. The family that caught him didn’t know what to think of him the way he was pulling and biting, at them. They told us that for a minute they considered that he was too mean to try and save. But they brought him to the rescue, and within an hour he was sitting on Chuck’s lap for comfort. By morning, he was giving kisses and laying his head on Chuck’s shoulder. We named him Mickey, and he is one of the sweetest little guys we have at the rescue. So, you see, you just never know.
Another dog, Betty was a mass of sores over skin and bones when she arrived. She has a beautiful soft grey coat now, and is so happy to be here.
Then poor old Boomer, was starving and so sick he couldn’t stand. Lots of love and tender care, and he is the King of the rescue.
So, just remember, that just like you can’t tell what a book is like by looking at it’s cover, you will sometimes find a hidden jewel when you try and look past some of the dogs out there that are neglected and abandoned.

Mickey, the next day after he was found! He is even more handsome, now.
