I thought that perhaps I would take Farleigh home, rehab him, and place him. But once I got him home and saw the extent of his issues (including fear aggression), I figured he'd be better off with me. And this is where he's been ever since.
Jimmy hates the "lion's tail" Darci left on Farleigh. We would have left more of his tail feathers, but they were badly matted too. And to take it all off and leave a rat tail would have been far worse in our opinion. So a lion's tail it was! The funniest thing was the rest of my dogs' reaction to Farleigh when he walked up to the front door--the snarling and barking (they didn't recognize him) was rather astounding, although Farleigh didn't seem to notice.
My sister says I should tell everyone he's a new breed of dog: the Liberty Lavender Dog.
And when all else fails, even overturned feed tubs can be used as resting spots.
