Seeing an animal suffering as a result of abuse or neglect is never pleasant. In fact, it's downright heartbreaking. Dogs, in particular, tug at my heartstrings. Maybe it's because they have such intelligent, expressive eyes. You can always see the suffering they've been through.
Street dogs face a wide variety of issues such as starvation, predation, and disease. One of the most common issues is mange - a terrible skin disease which results in lesions and rashes. When Powder the dog was first spotted in the Florida Everglades, he had a horrible case of mange. Thankfully, however, he was rescued and has since made a stunning transformation.
The video below may be a little disturbing to some viewers, but his transformation is absolutely worth it.
