After weeks of tender love and care, the folks at the Asheville Humane Society say "Magic" the poodle is finally ready to find a permanent family.
Magic was found barely alive in early August. A vet had to shave off 12 pounds of fur that was matted and full of maggots. He also had serious skin infections.
After a brief stay at the Asheville Humane Society, Magic went to live with a foster family. His foster mom, Marti, says she had to start with the basics because he was never trained. Magic has been going to obedience classes and has made great progress.
If you want to apply to adopt Magic or any of the animals at the Asheville Humane Society, call 828-761-2001.
