Seeing him in the shelter was a ‘sight’. How could he even stand with that mass?
Reaching out to Leave No Paws Behind with funds committed to him, found Prof. Gulliver safety. He had that mass removed (1.5 pounds, thank you very much), his fur that was caked with poo and urine was cleaned up and his infected ears were treated. Life is good now and he will never ever see the inside of a shelter again.
