Arrival Story:
He is very sweet and a little shy. Bones was a strictly outdoor dog and on 2 different occasions, teenagers in the neighborhood would bring a dog over to his yard and let it loose to attack him. Being chained up on a 3 foot chain and not able to move much, he was pretty much unable to defend himself. The latest attack took place the end of January. When I arrived at the house, I saw blood everywhere.....all over the porch, the doghouse, just everywhere. The people let me in and I saw Bones in the basement. They brought him in out of fear another dog would attack him again. Despite all of the blood I saw, he really was not injured as badly as I had feared. He had a small laceration on his head on a couple tears to his ears but that was about it. The people were unwilling to house him inside permanently and really were not interested in keeping him any longer so he is now ours to find a safe place for. His wounds have healed and now he is ready to get going out of the shelter! I have had him around other dogs as far as walking past them or being kennelled next to them and he shows no aggression at all. He actually wags his tail and gets somewhat excited when he sees certain female doggies :) When he first came to our shelter, he was a shy and nervous little man. After a short period, he blossomed and now is a very energetic and affectionate guy with everyone. LOVES to play with people, not all that interested in the toys we offered him. Has no food aggression or issues with taking bones/rawhides from him. This little guy needs a home that will show him a lot of love. I don't think he has ever had that for even one minute of his life. He will be altered if applicant for adoption is approved. Sponsorship available if a rescue commits to admitting this dog. Transport available to midwest or east coast if rescue is approved. This man is running out of time. He has until the beginning of April to find a rescue or will be euthanized.
