A volunteer offers this sad description:

"They say he is 7 and his eyes seem to say they may have been 7 tough years. He is heartbroken and scared; you can see it written all over his face. He has some skin irritation on his leg, but he is still amazingly handsome. Please take another look at this beauty and SHARE, the shelter is so full, he needs help now."
