Because Micky is a Boxer, he was named after boxer Micky Ward! And this Micky was in the fight of his life when he arrived as a stray at the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on August 2nd. At least seven years old, Micky seemed very shy, tired and depressed. He could barely make himself get up to leave his kennel. Micky was very friendly, but he seemed like a sad old man who had nearly given up. With Micky heartworm positive and the shelter full, his life was in imminent danger.
