He was underweight and dehydrated — and had water from his eyes when Best Friends took him in, according to the shelter.
Today, Dusk is described as a « sweet, brave boy » who likes to have his head scratched.
Twilight can be nervous around people he doesn’t know, but he tends to warm up and make new friends quickly, says Best Friends of Salt Lake City.
