Sweet Dreams for Maurice

All of the fosters we take in are memorable and wonderful animals. And some of these fabulous beasts strike a chord in different volunteers' hearts and some are universal favorites. This is Maurice. He's a great big lug who was dumped in a shelter's collection box at six months old with the most horrifying case of mange our volunteers had ever seen. In the photo to the right, you can see the hair loss and redness of his skin just a few days after he came to us.
The lightest touch on his body resulted in a bloody smear on your hand. But he loved to be touched, and he needed it as much as he needed to breathe. His foster family fell deeply in love with him. But when they saw the application from his new family, they knew they had found a perfect home for him.
And here is Maurice today. Sleeping and dreaming happy dreams in his mama's bed. How'd you like to wake up and see this beautiful mug every morning?

Yes, we'd give a lot to see it too, sighs

I think I fell in love with Maurice as many did, when his story was first told on the website. But I didn't appreciate how huge he is, til I saw his adoption photo! What a big hunk! Soooo glad to know he's now being treated as he deserves! xoxo to Maurice and welcome back FP!
