Milo the dog is now ready to find a new home, according to the Humane Society of Kitchener-Waterloo and Stratford Perth (KWSPHS).

The 10-year-old dog was found in July in really poor health near Bluevale Collegiate in Waterloo.

When Milo was taken in, the Humane Society says the animal was suffering from a terrible skin infection, fur loss on most of his body, infections in both ears and a condition called “dry eye.”

“As soon as we saw Milo, we knew he needed immediate medical attention — his appearance was shocking,” Kathrin Delutis, executive director of the KWSPHS, said in a statement. “We are extremely grateful that we could provide Milo with the care he so desperately needed.”

Milo has been with a foster family for the past several months.
