“We thought he was a tiny poodle from the picture.
His name was Chuen Fan, meaning rice roll.
It turned out that he was being transported to the SPCA where my daughter worked.
We decided to go meet him and when we got there, his hair was long and very matted.
He was not the tiny poodle we had thought he would be.
In fact, he was twice the size that he looks now, from all that hair.
He looked at us with those big sad eyes.
He was so sweet.
He was the only dog not barking at us, so we thought he was calm.”
