Reno, NV-(Dec. 11, 2015) Jaxson would make the perfect pet for a family with young children. The 5 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi is gentle and loving with a sweet disposition. However years of neglect have left the dog with bad breath and ugly stains on his teeth that officials say make him practically unadoptable. “Animals with periodontal disease are extremely difficult to place for adoption”, according to Veterinarian Dr. Clarence Sitzman, who is a member trustee and founder of the Foundation for Veterinary Dentistry. The non-profit group is donating time, resources, equipment and expertise to train shelter veterinarians across the country with the goal of making the animals more adoptable.
