This is completely and totally due to fleas. The volunteers said that the dog looked black when he came in because there were so many fleas crawling all over his body. can you believe that?? What the hell is wrong with people? Someone clearly loved him at one time, he is neutered.
The second dog we got out was a 10 year old JRT who was picked up as a stray and NO ONE would help him because he was old. I was worried why an older dog who is neutered ended up in the pound.
Here is the funny story. He walks so slowly on the leash, in my barn and fenced in area. BUT as soon as the gate was cracked for him to get out he ran like a bat out of hell and it was 10 minutes of 3 of us running around like crazy people and me throwing my jack over him to catch him.
