Tampa, FL... "Monster" Could use some help...

Postby GSDBulldog » Sun Sep 13, 2009 11:28 am

"Monster" is a dog I've been visiting at HCAS fairly regularly. I only wish I had the resources for one more dog because he really has that bulldog spirit I admire.

He looks like he's been through hell and back. He is missing most of his ear and part of his lip has been torn away, and obviously he is covered in scars. He walks with a bad limp and his legs are pretty swollen. It takes him a while to get up, but he'll fight through whatever discomfort he is feeling for a belly rub and a cookie.

He's at Hillsborough County Animal Services in Tampa, FL. I would pull him and transport if a proper foster home could be found...

Nevermind. I just found out he won't be leaving HCAS. He is very HW positive and failed his PBA(?)...

please give him one heck of a belly rub for us. Poor guy, people really failed him in this life, but at least he has found some compassion in you!

:crybaby: people suck.

I am glad he has gotten love from you.

I imagine PBA is "something" behaviour assessment.

I know that some rescues do "compassion holds"......Could that be an option for this poor soul?

I am officially changeing his name,,,,,,to " Good Boy",,,,even if it's for a short time,,,,he needs to hear/feel a change for the good. Crap,,, I have those eyes burned into my brain,,,extremely haunting......

Monster,,,,you don't deserve a name like that...He is a beautiful boy.....

I do volunteer work there and PBA is Pit Bull Ambassador. It's a test they give there pit bulls to see if they are food, dog or people aggressive, and they do a few other things also but I'm not sure.
