Customer Question

Buddy, our dog is now 3yrs. Old,we rescued him at 6 mo.s old.Said he.was going to put the dog down because his young kids were spending too much time w /him.We took him in. he was very shy at 1st,then fine but afraid of a crutch, broom anything like that.Absolutely would not go upstairs,even when we wanted him too.He's 3yrs. Old now. He bit our niece at about 1yr.and a few mo.s old just scratched the skin in 2 places, like 2 scratches. The Dr. Said just wash w/soap.No need to bring her in we called the vet to check on the rabies shots, his 2nd one was not due yet. They sent the dog pound guy to our house, he wrote up a slip and he had to stay in the garage for 10days,he shook his head and said this dog is fine.The vet called back and left a message saying if we.want to know quickly and the only way to stop him from biting was with the dog dead they would cut buddy'head off to test for rabies.A sickening message! He's always on a tie down recently a muzzle.He is very compassionate 99per
