“She was holding this black and brown matted creature that I couldn’t even tell had a face,” Schwartz said. “I couldn’t tell which end was which, except for the fact that he was trying to wag his tail. But the tail was so heavy from being matted, that I at first thought that the tail was broken.”
Schwartz guessed the dog had been living out on the streets for at least six months — maybe even a year. But what surprised her even more was how friendly he was.
“He was like, ‘Hey! Does anybody want to pet me? I’ll let anybody pet me who wants to pet me,’” Schwartz said. “He was trying to lick us, and wanted to be petted.”
