Need Rescue for Alex in Washington

Postby Misskiwi67 » Wed Nov 05, 2008 12:58 am

Hey all,

This gorgeous ball of love was brought to my clinic today to be euthanized. Mom has a severe medical condition that does not allow her to do much physcially, she was exhausted to even get her dog and cat to the vet today, and on top of that she is going to be losing her job on December first, and cannot financially care for Alex anymore. She is overwhelmed and wants to make sure she does right by Alex. She said everyone seems to want pit bulls to fight, and she doesn't want that for Alex.

I convinced her to give me 2 weeks to find Alex a place to go. He's a sweet pup, slightly overweight and in need of some exercise. He knows basic obedience and is good with cats. His vaccines are due in December, but I will cover those costs if necessary. He's just a big chunka-love and I'd really love to get him somewhere safe where he has a chance. He is reported to be "dominant" and gets along well with older dogs but seems to have issues with other dogs. She didn't elaborate any more except to say he is not a good dog park dog... no shocker there.

If you have room or know of someone who does, please let me know as soon as possible. Like I said, moms in rough shape and this dog really does only have 2 weeks. Please don't make me send this pup to heaven.

Oops... forgot the pics!!! He's very staffordy, about 80 pounds if I remember correctly, but should probably be closer to 70.

Good luck finding him a home!

Who could resist a dog with BATMAN's logo on his chest? :)

How did I miss that you're on Whidbey NOW??? Congrats!

OK, so, maybe I have a couple potentials for you. I'll check and see where they are in the process now.

Where's he listed?

He's not currently listed anywhere, I only found out about him yesterday. msvette2u has offered to list him on petfinder if thats what you mean by "listed"

I'm new to the whole rescue/foster stuff, so I might need a bit of hand holding when it comes to actual participation! I just want whats best for this pup, and I'm willing to do whatever I can.

Please PLEASE crosspost this guy to anywhere he'll have a chance at finding a responsible permanent home/foster.

I will honor moms wishes if we can't find something stable, but I still want to try. Thanks for your help everyone!

I've had no inquiries - heck I have a Puggle on here that isn't getting interest either though.
