A Little Bit About Me…
Cereal is a little dog that came to ACC severely matted. After a quick shave down he feels much better! He has a mass that will require further veterinary work-up, as well as a heart murmur.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Cereal is approximately a 4 year old male white and tan small mixed breed dog. Cereal was found as a stray on the night of 02/13/2018. Cereal was taken home for the night by the finder and was surrendered because of his medical condition.
How is this dog around strangers? Cereal was friendly with the finder and allowed the finder to pet him and take him home.
Bite history: Cereal did not try to bite the finder
Has this dog ever had any medical issues? Yes
Medical Notes: Cereal was found with an open bloody mass in his rear area.
Upon intake, Cereal allowed a leash to be put on him and to be collared. Cereal allowed to be pet and allowed to be carried into his kennel.
