Dobby Update 1

Dobby is around a 10 month old, Fawn, Mastiff mix. He was found as a stray and has been horribly neglected. We believe that he was kept in a cage too small for him that stunted his growth. As you can see in the photos, poor Dobby has severe Sarcoptic mange and he was previously barely able to walk, hunched over and his skin was hot to touch and leathery. After only 2 weeks of treatment he is a changed dog - his skin is noticeably clearer, peach fuzz is coming in on his feet and legs, and he is actually running and playing! He is a very happy dog who makes friends wherever he goes. Dobby is house trained, crate trained and is getting more and more comfortable on a leash with only a little work. He appears to be very eager to please and treat motivated so he is a fast learner. He shakes hands with both paws now and never barks or makes a fuss about anything. Dobby is a diamond in the rough and will be a very special new addition once he is healthy and ready for adoption!

Dobby is on Medical Hold due to mange.
