Somebody had just left him outside a pharmacy, and they were not coming back.Poor Dempsey was in a bad way, suffering from a serious skin infection, mange and an eye infection.Luckily for him, someone took pity on Dempsey at last and called animal control. He was taken to DeKalb Animal Services shelter.

From there, he was transferred to the volunteer group Friends To The Forlorn Pitbull Rescue in Atlanta.Who could resist that cute face and asymmetrical ears?Not Stacey Greenwald, a volunteer with the group who took the suffering pup home.From this point onwards, Dempsey began intensive treatment to help treat his condition, including a course of antibiotics and medicated baths.

With the loving care of his foster mum and their family, his infections quickly cleared up and his hair started to grow back. According to Greenwald, he is one of the best-behaved puppies she's had over seven years offostering. She tells The Dodo:

[H]e bounced back so quickly. He went from being pretty rough and sad to being literally one of the happiest, friendliest, most easygoing dogs I've ever met.
