Despite everything Atlas had been through at the hands of people, Pipkins could tell right away that he was very trusting.
“Even when we first got there, he never growled, never showed any sign of aggression,” Pipkins said. “We got the leash on him and he just got up and walked right alongside of us to the truck. He knew we were going to get him some help.”
At the vet, Atlas got X-rays on one of his back legs, which was very swollen, in addition to a few stitches on the deep bite wounds behind his ears. The vet also rinsed his cuts to get rid of any germs, which Pipkins will have to do multiple times each day to ward off infection.
