With his skin condition and his unusually shaped paw, Chubs looked to be in rough shape. But his personality was all smiles. "He seems pretty happy and friendly," Patrick Rives, superintendent for Athens County Animal Control, told The Dodo.
Now all he needs is a family to help him live a long, happy life without a front paw. "He loves physical contact and full-body massages," Lisa Milot, a shelter volunteer, told The Dodo, adding that Chubs gets around OK now, but he "should probably have a prosthetic to prevent back issues."
