Chance has made an amazing recovery

PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- A six-month-old pup rescued from horrible conditions has a whole new look... as well as a whole new "leash on life."

In fact, he looks like a different dog after a month of medical care and TLC.

"Chance," an American Pit Bull Terrier puppy, was found confined in a kennel covered in feces.

Before being brought to AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital, he was suffering from hair loss and scabs all across his body, caused by Demodex-- a non-contagious skin condition. 

Throughout his recovery, Chance received numerous medications and special baths for his skin condition.

Eventually, Chance went to a foster home for continued care and lots of puppy snuggles.

Chance has made an incredible transformation in just a month’s time! Now, he's looking for his forever home.

He's available for adoption at at AHS’ Sunnyslope Campus, at 1311 W. Hatcher Rd. in Phoenix.
