This poor boy has had a ROUGH life so far. He was found running stray in North Carolina. He has scars all over his face and legs suggesting that he has fought with other animals, his ears are battered, he had several tick-borne diseases, he has what appears to be birdshot and wire embedded in his shoulder, and heartworms. Whew! Through all of that, this sweet boy still loves people, ignores other animals, and just wants love (and tennis balls).
We feel he would be best in a home without other dogs.
