This pup was re-located twice over a few days but kept coming back to the beach so a decision was made to rescue him. He was found tired and lethargic with a high temperature of 38°C, he weighed 29kg.

During the full clinical assessment of the pup, a piece of plastic was found stuck between two of his teeth.
