My head

We get lots of questions about my head ❤️ So we thought we’d do a write up here so people can read up on my story.

I was born in September 2021 at a puppy farm somewhere in west Wales. At just 8 weeks old I was handed into Many Tears rescue centre with these marks on my head and a tear in my ear. No one knows what happened and the puppy farm certainly didn’t offer up an explanation.

Once Mum, Dad and Ben adopted me, they took me to my vets where i had a biopsy done to determine exactly what they were. The marks turned out to be cysts, and fortunately were all found to be benign.

They've never seemed to bother or hurt me, although they do occasionally get infected. Then they get a bit itchy and i have to wear my cone of shame to stop me scratching at them.

Because of this, over time our vet has recommended that they are surgically removed, to prevent future infections and so that is now the plan of action. So far i've had two removed, and have another two to go. We've been spacing out the operations to give me time to recover......and of course, time to be a puppy!

My next surgery is scheduled for January and it will hopefully remove the cyst closest to my eye. We will keep you posted!

Love Artie
