Found shaking and alone

Dennis was in such a sorry state when he was found and we didn’t know if he was going to make it. This sweet boy had so much sadness in his eyes and he couldn’t stop shivering.

A struggle to survive

When Dennis was brought to Woodgreen, he was in desperate need of medical care. He was covered in bald patches and had itchy, flaky skin from fleas and mites. For homeless pets like Dennis, the winter months are a fight for survival, and it is difficult to imagine just how cold he must have been and how helpless he felt.

Once in our care, he was assessed by our vets who noted that despite everything this poor dog had been through, he still had an incredibly sweet and sunny disposition. This gave us hope that Dennis wasn’t going to give up.

He was then given a warm place to stay with all the love and care he needed to feel safe.
