PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A Valley dog is getting a second chance after receiving what was likely a lifesaving haircut.
The male poodle mix was recently found in north Scottsdale. He was so matted and full of debris that he was hardly recognizable as a dog.
"His hair was so long, matted and full of burrs, thorns, dirt and debris that you couldn't see where his legs or ears or face were," said Betty Drake, one of the good Samaritans who rescued him. "The only clue was his nose, which you could see if you knew where to look."
Drake took him to an emergency vet, Arizona Animal Welfare League vet Dr. Claudia Channing.
There, he was examined and shaved.
The dog, nicknamed Ralph, has an abrasion to one eye from debris and several puncture wounds around his head, neck and forelimbs, probably from a coyote attack.
He was taken in by the Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA. The dog is about 2 years old and is not microchipped.
In celebration of Ralph's new lease on life, anyone who makes an appointment for microchipping a pet through AAWL & SPCA and mentions Ralph will get a special low price of $20.
Call 602-358-7267 for an appointment.
