    She is a bull terrier, not a pitbull:

    If you have ever crashed into a cactus you can sympathize with that guy.

    It's for real. The vets took out 1,347 quills. Apparantly they didn't quite get them all, and random quill bits still fall out once in a while. Otherwise the dog is OK.


    And my mistake, I think that's a bull terrier, not a pit bull. Edit: thanks, syadasti.
