Dozer's story is a horrible one. Dozer was shot by someone. He was able to run to the neighbor's house and hide under her porch. Even though the elderly woman was initially afraid of Dozer, she protected him for days. Dozer sat under her porch, untreated, for 5 days. During this time, Dozer repeatedly scratched at his gunshot wound. His wound is now 8 inches long, 4 inches wide and has a depth of 1 inch. Dozer’s wound was severely infected, he was positive for heartworm and was in very bad shape. He was hospitalized for almost two months, received several surgeries, and ultimately recovered. TAF was thrilled that one of the veterinary technicians who had cared for him through his terrible ordeal wanted to adopt him. He now lives with her and has a wonderful life!
