Valentino was abandoned, tethered to a tree in a backyard, with no food or water when noticed by kind neighbors next door who called a Poochmatch volunteer for help. We went to get him, but could not put our arms under him to pick him up because he had at least 100 stickers stuck to his belly, with another couple hundred on his legs, chest, face, and even inside his ears. He immediately went to receive professional grooming and he cleaned up SO well afterwards. To our amazement, he was not the least bit traumatized. He emerged from his ordeal a sweet, friendly gentleman of a dog. He got along well with any person or dog he met and it didn’t take him long to find his forever family who’d love and pamper him for all his life.
