Remember this horrifying image of an unhappy, sick and lonely young dog? He was featured in this previous post.

It is a dog we called Smeagol and he was found by an acquaintance of ours. Fortunately, he started feeling much better already with the ivermectine treatment against demodectic mange and good food. After a few weeks, just before I left, he looked like this:

Well, the good news is that after his adoption by Doreen, an Aklan State University VetMed student, she’s nursed him back to health so that we are extremely happy to be able to report that he now looks much and much better. His fur has not come back fully yet, and chances are that it will never completely come back, but at least he’s a healthy and playful dog now, enjoying the company of his family. Excellent news!!!
