Talking Palm Before and After We Adopted

Hello! We just adopted Palm from the SPCA. He was matted and had a scar on his nose from trying to get out of his cage. We found him at the SPCA (actually Alyssa, xcolbi, did) I thought I'd show you guys the before and after pics. He smells a lot better and his cut is healing. His haircut is really nice too (they gave him a "haircut" at the SPCA because he was so matted and hairy, and he still looked like this)

Before:




AFTER!




There he is, nice and clean! He still needs to get his mouth cleaned though. He didn't come from a nice place.

Thank you Yeah..he was in a cage for all his life (8 and a half years) and was from an "illegal kennel". I'm glad we got him. He's a really good dog

What a transformation! Palm is a lucky, lucky dog! Looks like your good deed made you pretty lucky too.

Wow... seeing him next to him's former self he really has changed over the last few weeks. You should be very proud.

Oy my goodness. Eight and a half years in a kennel? How lucky he is that he finally got out and has you to take care of him!
You may have some special challenges as far as him adapting to being a family pet goes. They usually have to learn everything from scratch.

Best of luck to you with Palm!

What a lucky little dog! What a big change in a short time! He really looks nice and happy. How kind of you to take him in, all that time in a kennel, so sad.
