In late August, Laura Forma spotted an unusual-looking dog trotting down a street near Houston, Texas. While the dog’s body appeared normal, his head had swollen to be about three times the size it should be.
“I was driving down the street, and I saw him right in the middle of the street, walking head-on into traffic,” Forma, an independent dog rescuer, told The Dodo. “I just pulled over and tried to get him, but he just kept running the other way. He wasn’t even interested in me.”
