Just before the owners dumped their English Springer Spaniel, someone saw them take off his ID tags and then claim he was a stray they'd found and couldn't keep.
The dog is friendly and affectionate and has a gentle manner about him. He's quiet and well behaved. But, he has some sort of skin disease which you can see around his eyes and his lower body fur is discoloured from lying in urine for who knows how long. His general health is not great and so he's not going into adoption. Toronto Animal Services will try to find him a rescue to go to but otherwise the prognosis for this guy isn't good.
When will the selfish and cowardly learn that dumping their sick old dogs on the city is about the worst thing they can do to their faithful companions? If this guy is euthanized, he will have spent his last days existing in the confines of a cold, strange kennel, scared and wondering what he did wrong to be so deserted.
