Mick used to live in a car park with approximately 40 other dogs that were fed by the local community. Mick had a tumour in his mouth which a visiting local vet removed. Unfortunately the wound became so infected that Mick couldn't eat anything and his carers were pushing rice down his throat! He was obviously in tremendous pain so he was sedated when he arrived at SCAD where his wounds were cleaned. It was soon apparent that his whole throat was infected and he had large tumours which turned out to be cancer. He also had a form of (treatable) herpes and he was severely anorexic. However, since being at SCAD and receiving much needed medical attention as well as treatment for the cancer, he is now in remission and is looking very well. Mick travelled to Calgary, Canada, to the Heaven Can Wait Animal Shelter where we home his new base will help him to find his forever home quicker!
Mick is a tall slim dog with a tan coat. He has white markings on his neck and paws and a long tail that has a very slight curl at the end. Mick has a face full of character and due to his jaw injury his bottom canines protrude - particularly on the left side of his jaw. He really is a handsome chap, with kind eyes and a gentle nature.
Mick was in a bad state when he first came to SCAD and it was touch and go for a while. However, once he was no longer in pain the was always incredibly friendly and affectionate. Even with all his treatment and chemo he never stopped wagging his tail. Mick is an enjoyable dog and loves to run around and play like a young pup. After all he has been through, Mick deserves a home with a family who will love and care for him - and he'll be sure to love them right back!
