This Miniature Doberman is one of the newest additions to our shelter. This poor little guy is lucky to be alive; someone found him thrown away in a plastic bag and brought him to us.
He is extremely skinny and the patches where he has no fur were completely covered in ticks. Gloria gave him a special bath to remove the ticks when he got to the shelter and when they started to fall off he was left with patches of bare skin.
Poor little guy is also anemic which is not surprising after being covered in so many ticks. It's hard to believe that such an innocent life could have been treated so cruelly; however, as you can see in the pictures, he has not lost his faith in people and likes to get affection and be held. Gloria named him Bruno and is hard at work getting him fattened up and healthy enough so that he can eventually travel to one of our partner shelters. We will keep our SAS followers up to date on Bruno's progress.
