This sweet boy is Quetzel (#3054) who arrived from China on 8/22. While in China, Quetzel was tied to his doghouse while his owner was setting off fireworks. Quetzel’s doghouse caught on fire and Quetzel was burned severely on one side of his body. The owner took him to the vet and then abandoned him. Golden Bond Rescue agreed to bring Quetzel to the US and help him find a loving home.
Quetzel had several surgeries in China and now looks pretty good. His one side looks quite normal, the other shows the burns. His US veterinarian said that the skin that was burned extensively will not grow hair but the rest should grow back; some growth has already started.
Quetzel has a wonderful personality and much of his fur is beautiful. If you are looking for a perfectly gorgeous Golden, Quetzel is probably not the dog for you. If, however, if you want a real sweet boy, Quetzel could be your guy.
Quetzel was adopted by his foster family on September 17, 2018
