7yr old APBT needs an understanding home.

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

7yr old APBT needs an understanding home.

Hey all,

I do have this outreach dog that needs a new home. His old owner is on the verge of taking him to be PTS because he is starting to go to the bathroom in their house. I asked if they had taken him to the vet to see if it was anything medical and they said the vet thinks its just old age. I have the vet's number and am going to call and verify this, but since he is short on time I thought I would post to see if there may be anyone out there interested in giving him a loving home to carry out his life.


Here is his bio...

Presenting... Shady! He is a very smart bully boy, and knows sit, lay down, crawl, roll over, speak, shake and jump. He is 9 years young but loooves to play. This guy is just a big mush pot, and looks like a big ol' teddy bear. He just adores other dogs and enjoys their company and playing with them. Shady is so cute, and loves to flop over after a day of fun and snore. He does get excited and jump, so we recommend older children so they do not get knocked over by this stocky lovebug. Please consider giving this guy a nice loving home to carry out his life.

BULLYsADVOCATE, have you taken this dog into rescue? I ask because it appears to be the same dog another new member was trying to re-home.

The rules for this section ask that you only list dogs you can vouch for.

Ah no I have not. From what I know, nobody has taken in this dog. Sorry for posting him I didn't know the rule.

I thought it said owner surrender's could not list their dogs - it is my understanding this original request is the owner's son is trying to find safe place for his dog.

I understand the need for rules, but if the owner's are not willing to try all the options out there, are we to really be turning our backs on a son who is trying (and I believe is himself fairly young) doing the right thing to find help?

The dog doesn't technically need to live with the person for them to vouch for them...they simply need to have MET the dog in question personally, to my understanding. :thumbsup:

Can't he put diapers on him or train him to go on puppy pads in the house? Why are people so unwilling to be there for their dogs when they are getting old or have medical problems? So sad!

My dog turned blind and the eye specialist said, "you don't have to put him down, he can live a happy life."
D'uh!! I would never put my dog down for something like that! Only if he is deeply suffering and I can't do anything about it.

My dog has adjusted well to being blind and is still the happy go lucky guy he always was!
