Hello, my name is Shrek. I'm a sweet 6 year old Potcake mix from the Humane Society of Grand Bahamas. My first couple of years on the island were pretty bad. I had an owner who neglected and abused me. One day, a tourist from Austria so me, my brother and sister and called the shelter to see if they would take us in. They said yes, so we lived safely at the shelter for years. Unfortunately, I had suffered some type of traumatic injury and my owner had gotten no treatment for me. My hind end doesn't work so well, but OutPaws is taking me to a specialist to see if there's a surgery that will fix my hind legs.
