Twix is as Sweet as Candy

Back on August 6th, Boston Animal Control found this poor dog wandering around in the Neponset area of Dorchester. Stray and suffering from severe and painful mange, they brought her to their Roslindale facility to treat her painful skin, providing flea treatment and monitoring her condition. The staff at Boston Animal Control were so touched by her sweet personality, they asked the Animal Rescue League for a helping hand.

Upon arriving at the League’s Boston shelter, the staffed named the pup Twix. Twix’s personality is so sweet that the name fit perfectly. The staff have been returning her affection with continuing to treat her skin condition with medication and giving her soothing, medicated baths.

Thankfully, her fur is beginning to grow back, her appetite is strong and she loves attending her morning canine playgroup. Twix has at least a three-month recovery period ahead of her, and they will continue to make sure she is comfortable and happy. Check out this cute video of her playing, too.

Could you be her knight in shining armor? This sweet girl will need a lot of love and kindness in her life after treatment has commenced. Head on down to the Animal Rescue League of Boston and meet your future companion. For more information about Twix, drop ARL a line by calling  617-226-5602 or check out their website. ARL of Boston is open Tuesday through Thursday 1- 7pm & Friday through Sunday 1-4pm, excluding some holidays.
