I don't even want to think of how long it took to take the quills out. Let alone how much pain the dog was in and how much the vet bills were.

I believe this has been posted somewhere here already... poor doggy!!

And for the record, it's a Bull Terrier, not a Pit Bull :D

It is hard to say if it is a Bull Terrier or a "pitbull". With that many quills in it's snout, it would swell up like a Bull Terriers.

And yes you should stay clear of porcupines and skunks too.
