This big girl is believed to be a red tick hound dog, with perhaps some pit bull mixed in. I took her in from a kid who said someone had dumped her at his house. Poor thing was covered (and I do mean COVERED) in ticks. She had ticks six deep all around the edges of her ears. They were literally buried up under each other! If I were a betting woman (which I'm not), I would bet there were 500 ticks on this puppy ... seriously.
We brought her home with us, bathed her with flea and tick shampoo, and gave her a big bowl of food. She ate until she looked like she had swallowed a basketball. She is now current on worming, shots, heartworm preventative, and flea and tick preventative. And she's ready for her new forever home!
