In September the shelter posted the pup’s story on social media and caught the attention of local rescue group Cocker Spaniel Rescue of Austin and San Antonio

The neglected pup hiding underneath weighed only 12 – 13lbs, when he should weigh over 20lbs, and was suffering from health problems

Hamish underwent dental surgery to remove any bad teeth and lost most of them. According to the Cocker Spaniel Rescue, an adult dog has up to 42 teeth. The abandoned dog was left with 11 after dental surgery. His lack of teeth led to more problems.

“No doubt about it, his previous humans failed him. He still needs a bit of a touch-up, but you can tell how much better he already feels! He is now a CSRA kid and will be getting the medical care he needs to get him ready to find his new forever home. Welcome to the family, Hamish!”

Hamish needed to gain weight and without the ability to chew well this was a struggle

With a diet of soft food and weight gaining supplements, he is on the way to recovery

Hamish’s low body weight combined with the cool temperatures in Central Texas means lots of sweaters

He even has a baby foster sister who he loves dearly

Hamish is currently in a foster home but is looking for a permanent family to love him
