I have this high kill GASSING shelter bookmarked because I always see what I can do to help, and I'm just curious, doesn't this dog look like he has bite scars on his face and ears? He could've been a bait dog or something, or my eyes are just playing tricks on me. I'm just wondering, because I have a soft spot for abused dogs. :) Lucky for him, he is listed as a hound mix, not a pit bull mix, because they don't adopt pit bulls out to the public. He is out of time, which means he can be gassed at any time. He is at the Spalding animal shelter.

He def. looks like a pit bull mix....but as far as the bite marks...they could be from ring fighting.....but I would think he would have more on other parts of his body...mainly his front legs as well.......but they could just be bites from being on the streets fighting for food and what not....hard to tell....has he been evaluated around other dogs?

Dogs with hair that short show every scratch that they've ever gotten pretty much. Lady, my pit bull, has a lot of spots on her just from playing with our puppy. I'm going to say his scars are from street fighting. They don't look severe enough to say he was used as a bait dog. He is VERY cute. He looks so sweet, but scared. Poor guy! I hope somebody has the heart to take him in before it's too late.

I agree with the other two posters. My dog Roe, you can see every scar she's ever had...and if someone were to first see her (and notice them)...they might wonder the same thing. She has been in a few scuffles, but a lot of it is just from puppy play. I'm not sure this dog has such severe scars that I would classify her as a "bait" dog.

Is this in spalding, GA????
