We jumped into action and immediately took Meatball into our program. We rushed him to the vet as soon as he was in our care and immediately, Meatball began to feel better. He was SUCH a good boy even though he was covered in lacerations (presumably knife wounds) and seemingly endless bites from another animal. He lets us bathe him, deep-clean his ears, and rub ointment all over his wounds. Watching how gentle and patient he was with us even though he must have been in excruciating pain shows us (yet again) how absolutely amazing this breed is.
Meatball has now settled into his foster home where he adores the other dogs and his foster parents! He is crate trained, potty trained, and a sweet guy who loves hanging out in the backyard and his daily walks!
