A VOLUNTEER WRITES:TROOPER is a 3 yo intact male, a stray at the shelter since 3/16/2010. He has very old scars on the face and a butchered tail. He weights65lbs.Trooper deserves his name. The medical people who are attending to his wounds qualify him as stoic and friendly at the same time. He is no trouble as a patient. Trooper was found attached to a pole on the boardwalk and we do not know what happened to his tail. Trooper is a gentle dog, indeed very friendly, easy going, calm and who loves to be attended to, cared for and loved. He is also a very beautiful dog who once his tail healed will look stunning. Trooper and I have walked next to a number of dogs and he was quite civil around them. A big mush! His behavioral rating is ...excellent!!
