This shaggy, 22-pounds of adorable cuteness was found as a stray in the Brooklyn area of New York, and sadly the poor guy ended up at the high kill facility of New York City Animal Care and Control. His coat is so matted, even over his face and eyes, he can hardly see.
On Thursday, this six year old was scheduled to be euthanized. Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue has stepped up but need the public's help to make this rescue happen. A volunteer from the rescue is the voice for the little abandoned pooch:
"My family never came for me so yesterday morning I was scheduled to die. They say I'm a Portuguese Water dog or maybe a Cockapoo. Perhaps I'm a Wheaten-poo? Whatever breed I am really doesn't matter because I'm still alive and able to pray even harder tonight for someone to save my life. I am friendly and greet everyone with a hello."
Although there has been quite a bit of discussion on the Facebook thread trying to find him a home, no one has stepped forward yet, and Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue is asking for a foster home and a sponsor for any medical care this poor guy might need.
