This boy I am assuming is a pit and heeler mix... his "sister" is very much a Pit Bull... they were found together abandoned in crates in a basement in Albany, Oregon. thank GOD a neighbor was alert enough to notice that they place seemed empty but continued to hear dogs crying. They were dirty with their own pee and BM from being stuck in the crates, underweight, and dehydrated, but otherwise very happy and wonderful dogs.
The woman that found them called the Animal Control, and they came to pick them up. She inquired about how well they would find homes and was informed that they woul be euthanized as they required vet attention nad that county shelter was "law inforcement, not an animal welfare agency."
The woman was low income and living in an appartment and therefore unable to take the dogs herself, but she went above and beyond what most people would do, even with her limited funds, and brought them to the vet. She had them treated for dehydration, spayed & neutered, vaccinated, and treated for worms. She even boarded them at the vet office for several days will trying to find homes. Sadly, they ended back in the county shelter.... They were transfered from the county shelter to the local shelter (which was a horrible set up... I will not go into details, but it was over croweded, dirty, sick, and scary)... they were together in a small set up with may other dogs.... We were there to pick up TWO dogs... and left with FIVE.
I was drawn to the duo right away, and fell in love with Errand and his "sister" (Wolf named her Nina... I brought her home and almost caused a devorce! I was NOT supposed to coem home with another dog!)... I found out that they were scheduled to be put to sleep that very day. Tears and deliberation later, they and a beagle-lab-chi thing came with us, too!
Nina is VERY sensitive to correction... very sound, confident, wonderful dog otherwise. I corrected her the first night for getting into the cat litter box... just a loud NO!"... and then I had to coax her back from under my desk several minutes later. She is terrified of spray bottles, too.
Errand wowed the pants off of me with how sweet, mellow, kind, and smart he was. In the little time that I got to know him I was smitten. We stopped at PetCo to meet up with Tankers (Who did 12 hours of driving that day, driving the next day, and then MORE driving for rescued dogs.... YAY TANKERS!) and Errand did so well inside PetCo.
He would make a fab dog for any family, I think. He is not neurotic or super hyper as you my suspect from his breed mix. He came off as a very well-adjusted sweet young man....
He is probably a year old or close. He is still young but not a puppy anymore.
He would love a home of his own for Christmas!
