Saddest Dog In The World Was So Sick He Couldn’t Stand, Looks Unrecognizable After Vets Step In

by Megan Wrappe
Megan is a writer from North Carolina who loves sports, sees way too many Broadway shows, and loves a good adventure! When she's not writing, you can find her curled up in bed with a Jane Austen book.

Merlin has had an extremely rough life so far. He was found wandering through a field before he was brought into the shelter, and was in the toughest shape anyone had ever seen.

His hair was falling off in patches, he was full of parasites, and he was so weak from malnourishment that he couldn’t even stand. But somehow, he had the strength to fight for his life like other dogs did before him.

Honey Bear was in just as bad of shape as Merlin when she was rescued, and another dog narrowly escaped a life-threatening situation when people stopped to help her.

Thankfully, so many people stepped up to help Merlin, too.

Soon, he was barely recognizable from the dog who came into the shelter.

He went from not being able to stand, to running around and playing with other dogs, and his fur grew in and he finally wasn’t so sick.

And now that he’s on his way to living the life a dog should live, he’s looking for a fantastic new home where a family will love him and take care of him the way he deserves.
