Make no bones about it, T-Bone needed help. It was so sad to see this sweet little senior in a shelter. An eight-year-old Miniature Pinscher, T-Bone was surrendered to the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on September 23rd. His owner was moving and an elderly relative could not take care of him, so off to this high-kill shelter T-Bone went, where owner surrenders can be euthanized at any time. Although he was relatively well cared for, he had hypothyroidism, for which he was being treated until his owner stopped giving the medicine.
