View Full Version : Should I adopt???

I am getting ready to adopt a boxer pup (2.5 months old) named Rocco next week once he has been neutered. I found him at the local human society earlier today. I am somewhat bothered by what the employees at the humane society said is a skin infection on Roccos front left shoulder blade. There looks to be some hair loss in the area and a sore about the size of a quarter. Noone there could give me a name of the condition but he is being treated with clavamox and otibiotic. This will be my first K9 companion and I dont want to end up caring for dog with a chronic skin problem if it can be avoided. Any suggestions/opinions would be greatly appreciated.
