Burr came in as a stray. He was so badly matted that you could not touch him anywhere without getting poked with stickers. The groomer reported that he had the most goathead stickers embedded in his skin that she had ever seen. He was immediately transported to the vet for antibiotics and another hour was spent taking more goatheads off of his whole body. The veterinarian said he had never seen so many in his career. Ten days later, Burr was off his antibiotics and will spend his time riding shotgun with a semi driver who is head over heels for him.
