Althea’s life has not been an easy one. When she arrived at the San Jose Shelter, the signs of neglect were obvious with her matted fur and a disfigured head, due to a giant growth. Thankfully, shelter workers gave Althea the medical care she needed. At first, rescuers thought doctors were going to have to remove her eye, along with the mass, but miraculously, her eye was unaffected by the growth! Althea still looks a little different, but she’s just like any other pup, loving, playing and always up for a belly rub!
