Longview, Texas (KETK) — Longview city officials told KETK Friday night that the dog was picked up as a stray, and no owners are being looked for.
The dog, Nickolas was brought in to the Humane Society of Northeast Texas, Thursday, with an embedded collar, almost reaching the his trachea. An infection had set in causing swelling up to his head.
Nickolas has injuries to his body, not particularly indicating the results of fighting, and an ear closed up due to infection.
Despite all the torment the dog has allegedly went through, he is totally people friendly, gives paw to shake hands on command, grins at you and has a wonderful personality.
Nickolas was taken to the veterinarian in Gilmer Friday afternoon.
Please keep this beautiful dog in your thoughs and prayers.
If you'd like to donate to help with Nickolas' recovery or are interested in providing him with a foster home you can call the Humane Society of Northeast Texas at (903) 297-2170
