If Mitchell was feeling down in the mouth, it was for good reason: his teeth were in terrible condition. At least eight years old and very emaciated, Mitchell is a Beagle mix who arrived as a stray at the Granville County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on March 5th. The shelter described him like this: "He needs medical attention. His teeth are in bad shape and possibly abscessed. His gums are pale, probably due to the fleas and ticks he came in with. He has green goop in both eyes."
