Top of the morning to you! My name is Topper, and I’m a five-year-old Bully Breed mix. I won’t spend any time beating around the bush–I’ve had a rough life. I spent years basically on my own, being chained outside and not being well taken care of. Years of neglect left me tired, hungry and emaciated. But even though times were tough, I didn’t let it get me down. I knew that one day things would change. Eventually, as part of a neglect case, my owner admitted that he couldn’t take care of me, and so I was taken to the Smyth County Animal Shelter in Virginia on May 7th.
