Would you adopt a wrinkled dog?
The San Antonio Humane Society says a 2-year-old Chinese shar-pei (pay) named Sesame was available for adoption beginning Tuesday. Dr. Courtney Bridgeman says the surgery is a big improvement for Sesame.
The animal underwent procedures to remove excess skin and pin back his ears. Shelter officials say the dog had so many facial wrinkles that he could hardly open his eyes and was prone to rashes. The weight from the wrinkles also closed access to the dog's ears and he developed infections.
Society officials on Monday announced the successful surgery.
