Meet our rescue of the morning!! Bolt was found abandoned in the rain in a nearby dog run, he is very sweet but underweight and so extremely dirty and matted, his knotted coat is pinching his skin with clumps of junk that are inches deep. Who could let this happen to such a lovely, happy soul? He's at the vet now and on his way to a grooming next. This boy is so hilarious, we can't wait to see him looking and feeling more comfortable. Stay tuned for updates, and huge thank you to @emmy_park | @stylepup and Whole Health Veterinary Hospital for helping us scoop this boy up and get him the care he desperately needs!! #rescuelife #animalrescue #rescuedog #neglecteddog #shihtzu #goodboy #gooddog #nycdog #teamwork #compassion #socialtees #socialteesnyc #straypride
