Ten years old and a Beagle mix, Mako and Lou, his female companion, were surrendered by their owner to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on October 19th. Shelter staff described Mako as being sweet, but very overweight. However, losing weight was the least of Mako's worries at the shelter; instead, his life was on the line at this rural shelter.
