Beauty in Bloom: Second Chances

9 x 12 oil portrait

This sweet boy is named Caleb. His transformation was incredible! When he was rescued by Dallas DogRRR, his ears were so weighed down by ticks that he couldn’t lift them, and his fur had been taken by mange. You could see the desperation and pain in his eyes. Now he is healthy, handsome, and well-loved!

Caleb when rescued….unbelievable.
