Mastiff - Male
House Trained: Yes
Sweet Pete got his freedom ride this morning, thanks to a wonderful volunteer that sprung him from the shelter and drove him to Lakeland. We can't thank her enough! First order of business was a very thorough bath with a medicated shampoo to begin the process to heal and soothe. We also needed to clean the areas covered with dead fleas and so irritated it required an extremely gentle touch. Both ears are so infected they are flame red, they were cleaned, flushed and treated. His nails were so long, I took at least a 1/2" off of them and they still need more trimming, but I didn't want to hurt him. Sweet Pete let me do what needed to be done with very little fuss, even though I'm certain it may have been uncomfortable at times. He is a gentle old soul that will never be neglected again. He is hand shy and fearful of wearing a collar, but very kind and gentle even in his fear. He will need a complete workup at the vet and long term care, supplements and whatever procedures are required to make him comfortable and give him the quality of life desired for the rest of his days.
