An abandoned pit bull puppy with a severe skin infection is showing signs of improvement.

Action News first introduced you to Elmo on Friday. Employees at Elaine's Pet Resort found the three month old tied to a fence in East Central Fresno on Thursday.

Doctors diagnosed Elmo with a serious inflammatory skin disease. But we've learned he was well enough to leave the vet and go to a foster home. We are told he's been eating, playing, and seems happy.

Donations have been pouring in to help him, and at least three people have already filled out applications to adopt Elmo once he's healthy enough.
