Good news for an abandoned dog who was found living on her own with a severe case of mange.

Pebbles' foster family says she's made vast improvements and is continuing to recover.

The dog had been living on a piece of city property for a long time because nobody could catch her. Someone was able to snag her and take her to New Beginnings.

At first Pebbles didn't want anybody really near her or to touch her. Veterinarian even had to sedate her for the first treatment.

After getting her into a foster home, she has become a little love bug. Her skin is still fragile and it doesn't look like she has ever had veterinary attention. She has been in the care of the shelter almost two weeks.

New Beginnings wants to thank all those who donated to her care. If you would like to help you can click 'donate' on the New Beginnings For Animals Merced website.
