Sandy, a 10-year-old Chow mix, was extremely emaciated, covered in ticks and feces. The woman immediately brought her to the Alpine Animal Clinic, where their first priority was getting her better.They shaved her down to rid her of the thick matted fur that covered her body and to assess the extent of the damage she had sustained.
