I edited the title just to clarify where he was in the US urrently. 11:35 pmThis is the group that I adopted my Capone from. They sent out this e-mail today. I do not know anything about this dog other than what is noted below, but WOW! what a winfall for someone!
"We received an email the other day from a woman whose friend has passed away dur to cancer leaving behind a beloved friend, Big Papa. Big Papa is a trained therapy dog that is homeless and currently on his way to the animal control facility in Florida unless someone can find a home for him.
I couldn't turn this email away. We have to turn away a lot of people and their owner surrenders every month, but a therapy pit bull is not something that floats around all the time. "He was her pride and joy and was being trained as a therapy done before she got sick with cancer."
He does fine with females but has had issues with males but is wonderful with any and all people. He lives with children and did amazingly well with them.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
so we can try to arrange transport. If you know of a friend that could benefit from an already trained therapy dog, please pass this message along.
Thank you so much.
