Jack was surrendered to BSR in an extremely poor state of health. None of his shots were up to date; his coat was gone on most of his body due to allergies and skin infections; he was overweight due to lack of exercise and his top front teeth were all broken off at the gumline and all 4 canine teeth were broken. But he was also heartworm positive so that had to be the first priority. Jack has only recently come to the final phase of his heartworm treatment, and so attention will now turn to his dental needs so that the breaks do not present an avenue for infections. Slowly, his coat is coming back and his energy is picking up as he continues on his long road to normalcy.
