    Have always thought that homeless people's dogs are probably much happier then those who get left indoors for hours everyday by themselves. Nice pictures.
    The ones I've seen have almost always had healthy happy looking dogs. There's an old boy I see every week who's got an old collie. He's thin and very very scruffy but his dog looks well fed and cared for.

    Abandoned Puppies Were So Sick They Had Lost All Their Fur

    They had to spend four months in onesies but now their fur is all grown back.

    The six puppies were on fire. At least, that's how they felt to Kristina Rinaldi, executive director of

    (DDR), when she picked them up from animal control.
    "When I say that these puppies were literally on fire, they were on fire," Rinaldi told The Dodo. "They were just burning up. They had high temperatures."

    - so much so that they were pink and hairless and had painful sores all over their skin.
    "I've seen a lot of mange cases in my dog rescue career, but this was the worst mange I had ever seen," Rinaldi said. "Their lymph nodes were swollen. Their eyes were swollen shut. Their skin was peeling off."

    . At the time, the animal control shelter was at full capacity, and they didn't have the resources to care for these puppies. So the shelter manager reached out to Rinaldi, and asked if DDR could help.

    "The manager actually said, 'How do you feel about hairless puppies?'" Rinaldi said. "And I said, 'What?' She texted me a picture of the puppies, and I said, 'We'll be there to pick them up in a little bit.'"
    A team of DDR volunteers rushed the puppies to a vet. But for two of them, help came too late, and they passed away by the time they arrived at the clinic.

    Detroit Dog Rescue But Rinaldi refused to give up. Medical staff confirmed they could alleviate the puppies' pain while treating them, so she decided it was worth the fight.
    The four puppies, whom the DDR volunteers named Wilbur, Petunia, Pinkie and Arthur, stayed in medical boarding for about 12 weeks.
    "We would visit them every day," Rinaldi said. "We also have a great support system of veterinary technicians."

    Detroit Dog Rescue When the puppies were eventually released into foster care, they still needed around-the-clock attention to continue treating their mange.

    "Mange is caused by tiny insects called mites," Dr. Danielle Cobiella, a veterinarian with

    , told The Dodo. "Some mites cause scabies, which involves extremely uncomfortable itching that can lead to skin diseases. Scabies makes dogs absolutely miserable. Another type of mite lives in the hair follicles and can also cause itching."
    To help the puppies' itchy and tender skin heal, the DDR volunteers also dressed them in baby onesies.

    The sick puppies in their baby onesies | Detroit Dog Rescue "Everybody on our team who had had a baby dug into their boxes and brought baby onesies in for them because their skin was so delicate," Rinaldi said. "They lived in baby onesies for about four months."
    Eventually, the puppies' fur started to grow in. It started as peach fuzz, but after about six to eight months, their full coats grew in.

    Wilbur and his new dog brother, Winston | Beth English "DDR takes on so many dogs who have been stabbed or shot or have the odds just stacked against them, and time and time again, we say, 'Let's sit back and assess the situation,'" Rinaldi said.

    Mange is no joke so if you think your pet has picked it up, easily done when on the road, get vets help straight off. Humans can get it too so respect it.
