12/15/20: Please welcome Valentino. His most recent owner purchased him from someone so that he could get proper vet care. It turned out to be a little more than he could handle so he asked us to take him into rescue to help him. He has a severe skin infection, mange, an ear infection, and he has been diagnosed with dry eye. He needs be neutered and have his palate shorted. We are treating his mange and skin infection with oral medications and he will be getting medicated baths twice a week once he get his neuter surgery stiches removed.
