Petfinder: Rocky’s Big Comeback

Our friend Rocky wasn’t always this attractive and healthy. When he arrived at Don’t BULLY Me Rescue in Austin, Texas he was, for want of a better term, a hot mess! The Old English Bulldog was suffering from a severe case of mange, double ear and eye infections, and secondary skin infections. Add into the mix a large, gaping wound on the back of his neck, which led the shelter staff to think he had been shot with some sort of weapon.

Fortunately DBMR had just received a Petfinder Foundation grant, funded by Orvis, which paid for Rocky’s veterinary care. A rigorous course of treatment helped to cure all Rocky’s health problems, and made him the good-looking guy you see here.

The staff reports that, despite being poked and prodded and having medications put into his eyes, ears and mouth, Rocky was a good sport. He’s a typical bulldog: stubborn but loyal, loving and high-spirited. And all he needs now is a good home.
