Sidewalk Specials took Odie away from a reluctant owner. The unfortunate dog had been malnourished and chained for seven years, as evidenced by his skeletal frame. It was probably his first proper meal in a very long time, and he gobbled up some kibble as soon as rescuers brought him back to Cape Town and Vet Point for a checkup.
Odie suffered sinusitis, a tick bite, and nine missing teeth. With so many health problems, why would want a dog? Who? A family with several dogs, hens, and horses!
Odie is now enjoying the life he was destined to live thanks to all of these new pals and a caring family. And we owe it all to Sidewalk Specials and our friends for supporting them!
