His melancholy eyes painted a picture of the heinous life he was forced to live

Chicken was a stray dog found wandering around by himself in bad shape, writes ilovemydogsomuch.

He was ill with mange, which had caused him to lose all of his hair and develop scabs all over his body.

He was thankfully rescued by Sidewalk Specials, who immediately took him to their veterinarian for proper medical care.
His skin began to heal and his hair began to grow back after receiving medicated baths and daily treatment.

Chicken now resembles a completely different dog!
His story demonstrates that you should never judge a book by its cover.

Chicken is now safe, healthy, and, most importantly, content!

He was even adopted and placed in a loving forever home, where he has his own warm bed and is lavished with toys.

Despite growing up on the streets, Chicken is quickly learning how to be a dog and knows all of his basic commands.

He even gets along with his new feline companion!
