My new charge is a boy from a control center.
A male Yorkie
His fur is matted, it’s like felt. 😱 I’m not sure I can work with this by myself. :/
We can’t go to the vet like this!
Best to give it a shot!
Wrestling with all this tangled hair took about an hour.
I definitely didn’t have the courage to try and get the hair on his face, so I’ll let the pros do this another day. 🤗
Look at all this armor he was wearing!
I did pretty good, if I do say so myself! 💪
(But if someone out of the know saw this, I’m sure they’d think I’d skinned him…)
I’d bet the hair I took off him alone weighs over a kilo…
Where in the world was he…His nails were growing in all the tangles, so they were growing in insane directions. 😭
There were even grass seeds and dried grass matted in him, and I heard that he had a massive tick problem when he got taken in. Well it’s pretty certain that he was abandoned by a puppy mill, that’s for sure. 😡😡😡
Luckily there were no big problems with his health exam (besides the ear ticks), and so as soon as I neuter him, I think he’ll be ready for adoption!
Blood test: no abnormalities
Weight: 3.05 kg
To be neutered on 5/23
In any case, he’s adorable—just my type. (^_^;)
I really hope he gets adopted before I become too attached. (-_-;)
Right! I also decided on a name for him right away.
He is Hokuto! Hopefully he’ll be a lucky kid.
