Pingu was found as a stray – just a little ball of severely matted fur, who was happy one minute and defensive the next. It was obvious he was uncomfortable. He was given a shave to relieve him of his excess fur when they discovered a surprise: a scabbed-over lesion under his eye that was leaking pus and blood. This poor little guy needed more help than originally thought.
Pingu was taken to the vet to evaluate the lesion under his eye. With a dental x-ray they found that the lesion below his eye was a ruptured tooth root abscess from one of his rear molars. They were able to remove the diseased teeth and close the wound in his mouth. Almost immediately after the procedure, Pingu was a new dog.
Foster & Adoption
Pingu was in a lovely foster home while he healed from his dental procedure, and he was made available for adoption on May 13. On May 14, just one day later, Pingu was adopted!
