URGENT! Need rescue, foster, or home. Miss. APBT

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

URGENT! Need rescue, foster, or home. Miss. APBT

Postby Adrianne » Sun Jul 18, 2010 2:01 pm

A friend of mine from another forum who is a malinois owner found an apbt stray. He's already pulled 87 ticks off her ears alone. She really needs help and he just can't offer it. The dog has nipped at the nose of his malinois and he just doesn't have the ability to deal with issues she may harbor. She is super sweet with humans and tolerant of all the tick pulling thus far.

She appears young but I only have photos on my email. I will upload them and post them as soon as I have a moment but this is urgent. The two rescue (shelters) he has found so far are unavailable, one "puts down bullies before you get in the door" and the other is a no-kill but infinitely full.

Please let me know if you can help at all, he is giving her until friday then will have to put her down in opposition of rehoming her into the classic home to home to home apbt or even worse fighting lifestyle which he said are prominent where he is.

Thanks for any help/recommendations in advance!

Oops, I misunderstood, it appears he's worried that HIS dogs will harm her, she is play bowing and trying to play with the dogs but the Mals want nothing to do with her.

Oh and eek! I forgot to mention she's not being represented by me, Im trying to give the current 'foster' some connections for rescue as neither he nor I personally know any in the area.

OMG that poor baby. Where at in Mississippi is he?? I can see if I can contact someone I know at the South MS Humane Society, they are VERY pit bull friendly and absolutely wonderful. I'm in Biloxi, MS.

I can't take her because I have a dog severely allergic to ticks. I'm going to my vet this afternoon, I'll ask him if he knows of anyone willing to foster. I do need to know where he is though, that would help a bunch!!

I'm heading over to my vet at 5. I'll pm you my phone number, you can text me the location of the person. If he's somewhat closeby, I can help with transportation if my vet or the humane society here will take her.
