If only he could talk: Blind senior dog found ‘curled up in a little ball by the roadside’

The DSPCA found a dog sleeping in a little ball on the roadside in Dublin, Ireland. The dog was believed to be about 12 years old. He has severe dental disease and is blind. His age is unknown given how long he has been sitting on the side of the road.

“If only he could talk we could ask him what happened, how long he suffered, who left him there, was he ever loved, was he ever wanted?”

Upon examination, the dog, believed to be a Bichon, has severely inflamed skin from his paws to his shoulders and because of the apparent pain, didn’t want his rescuers touching him. Even his ears were so infected and sore, the dog – now dubbed “McDreamy” was filthy, matted with feces embedded into his coat and unable to see because the fur covered his eyes.

Thanks to the good Samaritan who found McDreamy on the side of the road and called for assistance, McDreamy is now safe. His horrible past is behind him now.
