Was this a dog you once owned …. and you gave it away to a "good home". Or do you recognize the dog you had as one that was stolen from your yard. The informal impermanence of owning a pet and the casualness of concern for its care and its future would be a shock to those who do not see the victims of the inner city shelter that deals with the steady stream that arrives.
This pathetic dog came in severely matted and bound in its own private jail. He was picked up as a stray on Broad St. in Newark -- at a halfway house where drugs abound. It is difficult to ascertain if this dog was kept by one of the inhabitants.
Methadone Melvin has been given a speedy spa to get rid of the bundle of mats and the accompanying karma attached to the pounds of hair. When the hair came off, his personality bloomed! Less than 2 years old, he was held captive someplace and he has a background that we will never know nor would he want to remember. Due to his gruesome appearance, he was probably treated as an outcast. Melvin is in a happy place and would love to find a special home where he will receive love, care and acceptance.
