Rudy was seized from a home when it was discovered that he had an embedded collar. For whatever reason every other dog on the premises was okay and tended to except him. He was well fed and had another collar but they had just failed to take the other collar off. Rather than charge them they agreed to release him into our custody and we took him straight to the vet where they removed his collar. The vet said the excess skin you see hanging from his neck should be able to be removed should someone want to do so for cosmetic reasons.
Rudy is a lovely dog with a wonderful personality. How someone could treat him this way we will never know. He loves to give kisses and hugs.
