Jaws came to the clinic summer 2015 with a broken jaw, severly underweight and needing a home. Initially the plan was to rehabilitate him and find him a loving home. He now lives at the clinic where he loves to play with dirt chunks, fetch suckers, drink from the toilet, play with leashes, and sneak outside at any chance. If you come see us, Jaws will be the first to greet you, tongue out and all!
