Jazz is a ten-year-old Chow Chow mix who was surrendered to the Cobb Animal Control Shelter on March 10 in deplorable condition. His family told the shelter they were no longer able to care for their dog. Sadly, it appears his former owners had not taken care of him much at all.
Jazz is suffering from a severe skin infection and is underweight. In addition he also suffers from entropion, a medical condition in which the eyelid (usually the lower lid) folds inward. It is very uncomfortable, as the eyelashes constantly rub against the cornea and irritate it. The condition is treatable through surgery. No matter how poorly he was treated, however Jazz doesn’t hold a grudge. The staff reports this sweet pup as being house trained and good with children. A Facebook page for Jazz can be found here:
“Jazz is neutered, chipped, and tested heart worm negative. His ID is 593488, and he is in kennel 501 in sick bay. You will need to ask a shelter employee to get Jazz out for you. HE NEEDS OUT ASAP!”
