    This poor battered little beastie was picked up by animal control & brought to one of the local animal shelters.

    x2. Not sure which one--all of those breeds look similar. Or he could be a random mix.

    Looks like a Shamo to me. Asils are usually a little stockier, and Malays are taller. Of course, it could also be a mix.

    So a rooster for sure? He'll be put up for adoption when his stray hold is up tomorrow. Hopefully someone will take pity on him. I think they have him listed as a hen though, which aren't allowed in town. Some people even thought the little guy was a vulture at first.

    100% rooster though he looks young
     

  8. Hens aren't allowed but roosters are?

    Such a curious town.

    Oh, sorry, meant to say roosters aren't allowed in town.

    I love that guy! He looks like a cross with asil.
