Dada’s note: The dog who would become Dennis, newly rescued from wandering in a canyon with (presumably) his two brothers and his mother, was suffering from demodectic mange and had lost most of his fur when he came to us as a foster dog and took up temporary residence under a desk.
Picture taken October 23, 2007
As everyone probably remembers, Dennis is a rescue who was found wandering, starving and nearly hairless, in a canyon with three other vizslas. Recently we received some pictures of his brother Scooter (née Jack), another of the rescues. Here’s a side-by-side filmstrip of them. The top two pictures are from around the time they were rescued; the rest are from happier times. What do you think? Brothers? We think so too.
A couple of comments have asked about Dennis’s mange, and so I wanted to get a picture to show how nicely his fur is growing in. Unfortunately Dennis has decided he’s afraid of cameras. If he’s doing something cute and you even start to think about getting the camera, he detects this and flees like a drunken starlet in her Mercedes SUV on the run from the paparazzi.
