Arrival Story: I CURRENTLY HAVE AN ADOPTION PENDING!!! WISH ME LUCK!!
Bio: OH How sad!!! Is there no compassion left in the world??? Please help us prove to him that people still care!!!
This poor Rottie has not felt the love of humans in a long time. Ozzie must have been out on his own for a while. . . At least it is better to think that then to think someone took such poor care of him! Because of him being micro chipped, we know that he was orgininally sold from a puppy store and is about 1-1/2 years old, but his owners could not be located. Ozzie has a terrible case of mange, a skin condition caused from mites and poor nutrition . . . the open sores are just oozing and making him very itchy. He is so emaciated you can't help but see his hip bones, ribs and even the bone on top of his head stick out. We figure he had been out and about for awhile as he became very sick at the animal hospital he is at and after some quick diagnosis, it was discovered that he had a part of a corn cob lodged in his intestines. With emergency surgery and some prayers, our big guy came thru and is on his way to recovery. With as bad of condition as he is in, he is still so friendly and loves to be around people.
