Sumo

This guy has been through it...and it shows! Sumo was found by Lorraine on the side of the road, unmoving and taken for dead, until he lifted his eyes to look at her!  Since then he has lost a kilo and has been more responsive with the other dogs (but he's still a grump with the puppies).  Though he has come a long way, he still has far to go!  We gave him a bath and brushed him thoroughly, you wouldn't believe the grime which had built up all over his skin!  Now his fur is clean and soft, what a difference!  We also have given him a rigorous rub down with neem oil in hopes that his fur will start to grow back fully.  Maybe then people won't mistake him for a pig?
