Tug is going to @AthensCanineRescue Meet and Greet Saturday. he is also their featured pet next week, so I am publishing his photos. (swipe left). I was keeping his progress under wraps hoping his skin condition would be further along by now. . . It is getting better, just slowly. . . Having been neutered and all, he is ready for his forever family. His skin will continue to improve so I'm not concerned about that too much.
The first photos are from last week (Sept 1st) and go back weekly till his first photos at the end (July 27th). IF you are in #AthensGa Saturday afternoon, come say Hi at the #SouthernBrewingCompany.

#TugFootFriday
Had to use the "thumb censor" to avoid getting a NC-17 rating from the Motion Picture Assoc. of America.
Good news- I didn't see any mange mites on Tug's skin scraping today. Got Nexgard this past Monday.
Bad News- His hair is growing in way slower that I'd prefer . . .

7/29/17@andymathisdvm So we took in TUG to foster. . . (Swipe left) Athens Clarke Co. Animal Control is open access, meaning that they must take in any and all strays. They ran out of room and put the word out for Tug, presently the most unadoptable dog there and the first to be euthanized if they need space.

I HATE to type this, but Tug is URGENT. We don't often label dogs as urgent now--we have a low ("no kill") euthanasia rate for our dogs, even though we are a southern, open-admission, municipal shelter.

But we're full. Thanks to an after-hours pull of a senior owner surrender (many thanks Angels Among Us Pet Rescue!), we have one open kennel. One. On a typical day we take in 2-3 dogs. On a typical day this summer we take in 4-5. Where will they go tomorrow, Friday?

There are no dogs left that are behavioral problems with people or dogs. There are no dogs left that don't have strong supporters. There are no dogs left we haven't spent love, time, money on.

So the question is: Who is stuck here, unadoptable?

That leaves Tug.

Tug is a good guy, and has shown no behavioral issues. But his skin is bad--he has demodex. It's not terminal. It's not contagious. It's highly treatable. But it takes time. And time is what he does not have. While he received Bravecto his first week at the shelter, it takes time for his skin to heal.

And until his skin heals, he can't be neutered. His skin is too fragile. And we don't have time for it to heal.

So while Tug is not the only dog at risk--*all* of the available dogs are--he's likely to be the first to go.

We're hoping he goes to a home before that happens.

So he is here- to get neutered, his skin treated, etc. He'll be available for adoption through Athens Canine Rescue.

If you ever wonder who benefits (besides your budget and wallet, which is awesome!) when you shop at Second Life's two stores, here's the answer. All of these wonderful Georgia rescues benefit from your support of Second Life! Lots of shelter pets. Many dogs. Many cats.

Sometimes learning how to walk into a kennel on command is tough...so you improvise and hope for points for creativity.
