He was living in this pen outside for the last couple years....this is the picture we saw before he came home. We thought he looked pretty bad, but...
...he looked worse when he got here.There are more pictures here if anyone is interested:
He has lots of worms, including tape and hookworms. Yuck. He was covered up in fleas and as you can see has a bad flea allergy so he's lost a lot of hair. His skin is all open and oozy and gross. (he smells reeeeally bad) Dr. Bill said he has the big one too - heartworms. :( We're hoping there is a rescue out there that will help us find him a home. He has some issues but with some love and care he will be a wonderful new family member for someone. He came with the name Tatonka but we've been calling him Walter.
PS He's pretty big, I can't reach his butt to sniff and he weighed 84 pounds at the vet. He's still a little underweight, his bones poke out everywhere!
