Professor has definitely been someone's house pet in the past. He was found roaming a neighborhood with severely infected eyes that were so inflamed he could barely see. He kept going door to door looking for his owners. He finally gave up and just stayed on a families' porch and cried until they let him in. He was good with their 7 yr. old dog and their 11, 12 and 14 yr old kids. He actually slept in bed with their 14 year old daughter. When Professor's owners could not be found the family turned him over to our rescue partners in TN. He was examined by a veterinarian in TN but the rescue could not afford to provide his eye surgery. Professor had a common Shar Pei related eye problem where his eyelashes were turned inwards. He received double entropian eye surgery and was neutered by The Affordable Spay Neuter and Pet Care at a discounted rate. He is approx. 4 yrs. old and now in great health! He is a fan of going on walks and does well on a leash. He loves to play with toys but can be a little too rambunctious for small children. He has the short, bristly coat of a Shar Pei and loves back and belly rubs. His adoption fee is only $200 to the perfect home! 10-15-16 Professor had a meet and greet with a male cocker spaniel and a male collie. He did so well! He loved both dogs and was so playful.
UPDATE!!!! Professor is in a wonderful temporary foster home. He is doing great with the resident cat and small dogs. He was obviously feeling stressed out from being in the kennel. Now that he is in a home he is blossoming! We would love for him to find a permanent home. Please complete an application if interested.
