This chumby (yes, I'm making up words now) Sharpei Pug Puppy, rescued from a Wellington area puppy mill by Kismutt almost two months ago has got a great mix of personality and looks.
He'd be up for adoption already except he'd gotten such a bad ear mite infection from the puppy mill where he was bred that even once the mites were removed, the ear tissue had suffered so much trauma that hematomas developed, swelling the ear flaps up until it was like there were hard lumps of clay implanted beneath the skin of each ear. So, TAS had to take care of that problem and then there was the recovery period and now, finally, the bandages should be coming off any day now, maybe tomorrow - fingers crossed - and Magoo can finally go into adoption.
And if you think this guy's cute, wait 'til you see his little sister.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
