Rescued from Downey Animal Shelter -- Los Angeles, CA
Adopted November 24, 2017
This little senior fella found himself in a tough situation: dropped off at a high capacity shelter south of Los Angeles. He was gnarly looking too: dreadlocked fur, infected scabby skin, fox-tails embedding his skin and infected toenails. His front teeth are worn down from gnawing hard objects or metal. His teeth were very uncomfortable-- his whole body looked very uncomfortable!

3 baths and 2 shave downs later and we have ourselves a significantly happier dude!
What we know about Roosevelt so far:
- Very chill and quiet.
- He is so sweet and gentle and kind.
- Maybe 11 years old.?
- Possible doxie/spaniel mix.
- 100& love bug.
- Fantastic in the car considering he was most likely a backyard dog.
- He received his much needed dental exam and is healthy and up to date! Please consider donating to this little heart of gold! $5 donation will go a long way for this fella!
We rely 100% on donated volunteer time, and small donations of just $5 from animal lovers everywhere! If you feel inclined to help Roosevelt start the next clean chapter of his life, please donate just $5 here:
