Abandoned 5lb Chihuahua Suffers Severe Chemical Burns!

MerlinadoptionNovember 2012 – Merlin (blue chi) now named Marly has gone home with a new loving family and has a new furry sister named Baby!

Sept 2012 – Magical Merlin was dropped off at the Orange County Animal shelter as a stray with no owner in sight. Merlin had terrible burns covering the entire surface of his head, down his neck and on some parts of his body. This little guy weighing only 5 lbs was no match for this type of abuse, but he is a miraculous survivor and is now recovering with us. The photos show the painful healing process Merlin has undergone so far. Despite being treated this way, Merlin is a very happy, playful young dog with a lot of love to give.
Merlin will be ready for his forever family by the end of next week.
