Junior is a tuxedo who turned two years old in May. He had a rough beginning.
We adopted him at five weeks We went to the shelter and went back for him to adopt him and they had him in sickbay. They were getting ready to euthanize him.
He had burnt paws and whiskers because he fell out of a moving car. The witness took him to the shelter. We said we don’t care that’s the one we wanted to adopt.
After adoption and chipped, we took Junior to the vet who gave him an antibiotic shot. Then come to find out he had ringworm. He had to be dipped in bleach water every other day for six weeks. The vet said we were his heroes.
Most people don’t have the time to deal with ringworm they’d rather have them put down then deal with it.
Look at him now and his paws healed and healthy skin.
