Silver Dust has apparently had a pretty hard life ... and then was abandoned without even an note. She is probably only 8 years old but she looks much older because of the poor diet she's had for a very long time. The results of her nutritional deficiency are extremely bad (and itchy) skin, eye disease, rotting teeth and huge tumors. As severe as her condition is, much of it can be remedied with good food and proper care. "Dusty" is such a good-natured dog and so appreciative of even our modest accommodations that we are determined to help her have a better life. She needs a retirement home where she can be a part of the family.
