Arrival Story:
I received an email about an injured dog at our local shelter. After I seen a pic of this sad, depressed, badly injured dog, who was not being given medical treatment I began making calls to see how much it would take to fix him up. After speaking with the shelter vet, I knew there was no way I could pay the costs. However, I decided I needed to go see for myself. I arrived at the shelter, on a Saturday and they were very busy. Found a lady I had been communicating with and she led me down the hall, dogs on every side, out the back door to the outside. In a pen, in the very back, hidden in a doghouse was this sad dog, malnourished, beaten and battered...I knew, no matter what he was leaving with me and he did. I took him to MY vet and she rubbed his leg that had been injured, told me to take him home and keep him crated and he would be fine....costs me nothing and he's been fine ever since. After I further inspected Baxter's wounds he had been badly abused and neglected it almost looked as if someone had taken a knife and peeled back the skin from his ribs. It was very bad. He lost all of us hair (from bad nutrition) and his age was impossible to determine because he was so badly cared for. He quickly gained weight, teamed up with Brinkley, and is now a happy, excited, humble, loving dog. He hates cars with a passion, even if they are parked and is scared of everything. HE has a passion for his milkbones and LOVES ME almost as much as Brinkley but not quite. heee
