I can’t even begin to imagine buying a puppy and then one day just deciding to abandon it.

Well unfortunately that what the owner of this 8 year old Chow did just before the 4th of July this year. The dogs owner called Downey Animal Care Center to come retrieve the dog, named Oso, because they felt they could no longer deal with his medical issues. Poor Oso was diagnosed with alopecia and pyoderma, which results some cosmetic abnormalities.

The rejection from his owners left Oso extremely depressed. The pooch spent weeks hiding in the corner, but now, he’s learning to open up to people again.
