SAN ANTONIO (AP) - First, Sesame the shar-pei (pay) got a facelift. Now, he has a new home.
Sesame had surgery in San Antonio on Monday to reduce excessive wrinkles and help him to see and hear better. On Friday, the San Antonio Humane Society says a San Antonio woman adopted the 2-year-old pooch and took him home.
A Humane Society statement identified the woman only as Teresa but said she had experience with the wrinkly Chinese dog breed, having owned several shar-peis before.
The Humane Society ordered the plastic surgery for Sesame because he had so many facial wrinkles that he could hardly open his eyes and was prone to rashes. The weight from the wrinkles also closed access to the dog's ears and he developed infections.
