Meet Curly 💙 Curly is one of the five rubies we took in earlier this week after they were retired and released from a lifetime of breeding. Curly is anything but curly as you can see he arrived completely shaved. We aren’t sure why but our best guess is that he may have been a completely matted mess. It’ll be interesting to see if he grows back in curly!
Curly is 7 years old and just a tiny tot at 11 pounds. While Curly is suffering with medical issues stemming from neglect, we are pleased that his eyes, hips, and knees are clear and has just a mild, asymptomatic heart murmur, typical for his age. We are treating Curly for bad ear infections, whipworms, giardia, an ulcerated scrotum, and awful awful dental disease (like all the others). Today, he underwent his neuter surgery and much much needed dental which resulted in the extracting of many teeth (which he won’t miss a bit)! He is now in his foster home in Birmingham, Alabama resting and recovering after his big day!
