Skeeter was found on 6-4-11 in Branson, Missouri, running frantically around a busy road as if he was looking for his owners or for help. He was very thirsty and hungry and covered with 115 ticks and many, many fleas.
Skeeter appears to be Chihuahua/Jack Russell (?), but he may be all Chihuahua. We have no health history on this adorable, sweet little guy. Skeeter was neutered June 16, 2011.
Skeeter was taken in by a nice lady who bathed him and picked ticks off him. Now he is a happy little dog looking for a new family. We do not know how long Skeeter had been wandering around alone, but it might have been quite a while due to the number of ticks on him.
If you would like to adopt Skeeter, please contact us. Thank you.
