In Phil’s condition that the vet commented on, Danielle said:

“The bottom a part of his teeth are crushed, so his theory is that it had been probably because he was kept during a box all the time and eventually he was abandoned because his health problems got out of control.”

But no matter how rough his past may are , the great news was that Phil had found his forever home, because for Danielle and her boyfriend, although it had been really hard to stay and look after him, they not felt ready to close the doors on his heart.

For now, Phil is on a special diet to assist him recover , and his fur is growing slowly. Gradually, a faint fuzz grows on her skin, unfortunately she is going to have permanent stains remaining, but Danielle only cares about mending her heart.

Many people, upon seeing it, say it's sort of a hyena or “the chupacabra”.

But to his owner, when she looks into his eyes, he's definitely the sweetest, most beautiful, loveliest creature which will exist.

He just wants to lie and relax with you all the time. Also, there's your little face, he has that expression in his eyes like he's grateful all the time. It’s as if he can’t believe that he features a comfortable place to lie a day .

Phil gets along alright with Finley’s other three rescue dogs, although he has formed a very close bond together with his oldest Boston bull , Lily.

“They get pretty accumulated most of the time. you'll nearly always find them accumulated ,” says Danielle, laughing.

Phil seems to understand how lucky he's and is consistently showing affection. But his owner proudly admits that she is certainly the foremost blessed and lucky to possess him in her life.

It’s touching to ascertain how a puppy with a dark destiny found his angels within the right place, who changed his life forever.
