Imagine the pain you'd feel when you are covered in open wounds, b.l.o.o.d trickling down your legs, all while you are terribly underweight.


To say this young boy was n.e.g.l.e.c.t.e.d would be an understatement.

This youngster spent months receiving treatments at the vet and will never know that kind of pain again.

Weighing only 53 pounds and diagnoses with mange, bacterial infections, anemia, as well as a host of other issues when rescued, he recovered like a champ and moved into a loving foster home while awaiting adoption.


Then he met a family who would change his whole life.

Posse, now known as Presley, is a sweet boy who loves children, is a leaner, adores his mom more than anything else in the world, and loves going for his walks.

Dogs like Posse/Presley are labeled "rescue only" at the shelter, due to their medical conditions.


Supporting your local rescues, like Coastal German Shepherd Rescue OC, is your chance to help these dogs receive the treatment they so badly require and help them get a chance at a fantastic life with a loving family of their own.

Huge thanks to Dogma Pet Portraits for photographing this happy ending!
