Kirstan: I have the shelter managers information if you would like to contact her. Just PM me and I will give it to you. I offered to transport him if we can find him somewhere to go.
I just got back from the shelter, it was very sad..... it is cold and windy here and Tivoli has an indoor outdoor kennel, his door is broken and the wind and cold can freely come and go. He was shivering badly because he does not have most of his hair. Sadly it will never grow back. I did learn a few things today about him however.
He has a pin in his hip so a home with stairs or the ability to go up and down stairs is out. He is severely over weight and I am sure that does not help. This poor guy was even more pathetic in person and the pictures of how he was found is absolutely heartbreaking.
Unfortunately he is not good with cats or dogs according to the shelter. However she did say that they do not "have the time or the facility to test them thoroughly"
He is fantastic with all people and loves kids. I was a bit frustrated when I told them we were trying to help by pulling him and getting him into a foster situation. She said they were "very protective of him and cared for him alot" so wouldn't you think they would jump at the chance at finding him a home situation. I told her as much. They are not really a pit bull savvy shelter.
They are a no kill shelter so the potential for him to have to live his life in a 4ft by 8ft kennel is likely.
Here is the shelter address for those of you that would like to send blankies, toys(alligators his favorite) , or treats. He was too cold to go out today so I did not get any pictures. This poor guy could really use a sweater and a big soft bed to sleep on. Actually he could use a forever home! Thank you all soo much for your support.
