He was abandoned because he’d been attacked by another dog and had a huge wound, screw worm resulting in a bad infection. The scar is still there but he’s none the worse for it. In fact, it probably was to his advantage as he was given up as a warehouse dog which allowed us to find him a home.
He’s so happy to have a home, as are we. He’s a truly delightful dog who has a happy ending to a sad story. Way to go Sherlock!
