Gaze deeply into the sad eyes of Ruckus the St Bernard, and you will see a dog who knows he has made a mistake.
And unfortunately for Ruckus, some mistakes are more painful and embarrassing than others. On the plus side, he has hopefully learned a valuable life lesson – don’t mess with porcupines.
That’s exactly what the dog did to leave him with a face full of quills and needing treatment from his local animal shelter in New York.
The only way that he could be treated at Lollypop Farm was by having each individual quill painstakingly removed.
However, despite some pain Ruckus has since made a full recovery. A spokesperson for the shelter said: ‘Ruckus was surrendered to Lollypop Farm so that he could receive treatment for the quills that were stuck into his jowls, face, and inside of his mouth.
