Cricket, arthritic and severely emaciated, came to us with a cough with nasal discharge, a possible broken jaw, extreme tartar on his remaining few teeth, and nearly hairless. Nursed back to health under his amazing fosters' care, Cricket received the nutrition, treatments and medication needed to gain weight, grow most of his hair back, and regain his energy. Two months later, Cricket went home with a retired couple and their four other tiny dogs with a new combined weight of 26 pounds.
