dogs in shelters

get overlooked for any of a number of reasons, but the most heartbreaking complaint is when the dog doesnโ€™t look pretty enough. Much of the time, these dogs have spent years on the streets, which is not an environment conducive to maintaining a presentable appearance.

and afflicted with a visage so startling that, when a person saw him walk across his property, they threw things at him to scare him off.While it is no surpriseย that a dog like Augustus - with exposed skin and fur so matted that it looked like scales - would attract negative attention, the good people at
