Ricky, my brother’s dog, was a scruffy stray with matted fur and sad eyes. He looked like he hadn’t been fed in weeks. But after my brother adopted him, Ricky’s life changed dramatically. With a healthy diet and lots of love, Ricky’s fur grew soft and shiny. He became a stylish pooch with a wagging tail and a happy bark. Now, he’s the most handsome dog in the park. Ricky’s transformation is proof that with a little TLC, even the scrappiest dogs can become loving and loyal companions.
