The last leg of a long journey began today as Dermot the starved and abused American Bulldog Mix is en route to his forever home. He left today with all his paperwork, and will meet his new mom in Pennsylvania on Saturday!
Dermot was rescued from a public shelter and arrived at Lifeline Dog Rescue having been starved at 62 lbs. showing ribs and skin and bone on his hips, plus he was heartworm positive. A rusty wound deeply cut into his fur around the neck, plus numerous wounds and injuries
Dermot left Lifeline Dog Rescue early this morning on 27 Sep 2012 at 87 lbs. in full health including heartworm negative. Here are a series of photos to illustrate before and after.
Enjoy this series of photos showing the amazing transformation of Dermot!
The tranformation is complete and another high risk rescue dog is on his way by ground transport to his new forever home. Dermot’s new family is in Ontario, Canada, and includes a mom, daughter, and two large male dogs.

Dermot loves to swim and interact with the other dogs. He likes children, strangers, baths, grooming, and nail trims. He enjoys walks, swimming, and car rides. He is housebroken, comes when called, and walks on a lead.
We’re sure he will LOVE snow!
