A Rottweiler abandoned and tied to a fence!
Had ticks all over his body, so many that after a dip someone had to sit down to take them off his face!
full of hookworms. The ticks and the hookworms were eating him alive!
He is now anemic
Updated on 9/9/04 with new pictures at the bottom of the page!
He is a gorgeous male who has been neglected and is underweight.
But, as a
good Rottweiler he is, he shows his gratitude TO HIS RESCUER
and he makes sure to tell her how much he loves her

COAL After Tender Loving Care
On September 8, 2004 Cathy Crespo sent new pictures and writes...
went to see Coal today and bathe him and take him out before his surgery
tomorrow. HE LOOKS AWESOME!! He has gained 12 lbs his eyes are clear
and the bottom lids are beginning to close up to the eye. All of the sores
on his body are healed and most of the scabies are dried up and falling off.
His hair is back and there are only a few places on his face that still need
some. He did not collapse once during our walks. He is getting
stronger by the day. AND WHAT A LOVER. He gives kisses and hugs.
Loves to take a bath and be brushed.
In 2 weeks he has transformed into a handsome , strong boy. I tell him all about Xena and his new home everyday and while I know it will be hard for him to leave me (he loves me to death) I know he will be so happy there.
Here are some pictures taken today. Go see what 17 days of TLC has done for this boy.
before and after
and COAL GOES HOME!
I AM SO HAPPY! Can you tell?
Cathy, from day one you helped me. You took a look at me and you LOVED me! I will NEVER, NEVER forget you, my Guardian Angel. Thank You!
I am riding in my new car and going to MY OWN HOME!
Meet my new Dad Jim, Mom Joanie and Sister Xena!
this is what my Guardian Angel Cathy Crespo writes..
Coal found his forever home. As I sit here crying because I will miss Coal.
I also have tears of JOY!!. Coal was one of the those rescues that really
got under my skin. The love is his eyes and the bond he formed with
me in the short time we had together makes me wonder how anyone could have ever
been so mean to him.
Today he went home with Jim and Joan and his new sister Xena. God sent us a very special home for Coal. It's not everyday you find a home that is not looking for a PERFECT dog. Everyone one wants the young, handsome, healthy dogs.
God sends special people for dogs like Coal that need a little extra care. Coal is mostly blind and needs a guide person. I think his new sister is going to be his eyes. She was already showing him how to get the ball.
I would like to thank Grace for making him his own website as if not for the website Jim and Joan would not have found him. A big thanks to Luis who is always making the time to do our home checks anywhere in the middle of the state. And especially I would like to thank God for bring Jim and Joan for traveling 5 hours each way and for making room in their hearts and home for this great guy.
We will be looking forward to an update form you just to let us know how things are going.
Kiss Coal for me and tell him how much he is loved.
now, I need to show you more pictures
my Dad Jim is telling XENA to be good to me.
He said, "go play ball with Coal"...
She brought me the ball. It has been a very long time that I had a ball to play with. THAT was so sweet of her.
and Dad could not wait to tell everyone how wonderful I am
I love it here!
It can be done! Never, never leave a dog abandoned. You take him home and God will do the rest!
