There’s Hope for Bandit!!
A little Lhasa-Poo mix has a chance at finding a loving forever home after concerned citizens rescued him from a life of running wild in the fields of Husum, Washington. Having been on his own for more than three years, Bandit was very skittish and would run at the sight of a human; making him almost impossible to capture. With the help of oral tranquilizers hidden in some food his capture was successful.
Bandit was brought to Home At Last Humane Society on April 1st where Animal Care Specialist, Leese Johnson and her staff of Animal Care Technicians assessed Bandit’s condition. On initial assessment they were able to trim around his face and clean up some of the feces that had accumulated around his back end. They also discovered a collar hidden in his tightly matted coat. Because of the severity of matted hair and the unknown dose of tranquilizer left in his system, Bandit was referred to My Family’s Pet Doctor. It took over 90 minutes for Dr. Maichel to shave his hair, discovering his right ear was attached to his shoulder due to the matting. Once Bandit was free from the painful mats, Dr. Maichel and her staff kept Bandit overnight for observation.
The next morning, Bandit was released back to Home At Last where he is adjusting well to human contact. Bandit will require further assessment and observation before he will be ready for adoption.
