Fwd: Update w/ Pic Attached per Timely Plea for Help re: Found Dog for Someone Leaving Town for Surgery

Please find below the description of the doggie.  Please forward this email to as many people as we can as I'll be heading out of town for surgery next week and I need to find a place for the doggie ASAP.

I found this sweet dog at the Walter-Fuller dog park on[masked], in the Tyrone/Azalea area.  He was apparently abandoned by someone who left him inside the dog park.  No one at the park knew who had left him but said he'd been inside the dog park for a few hours (so it appears someone dropped him off at the park in hopes that another dog-lover would rescue him).  I've posted signs in the area and I've contacted all the local agencies, but I cannot locate the owner.  He had no collar and no micro-chip.  He is a very friendly dog and appears to have been very well taken care of vet wise.  However I am leaving to have surgery out of town in a week and I MUST find a home for him before then as I already have 6 foster animals that I take care of by myself and I cannot take on another one due to lengthy recovery time after surgery.  If I cannot find a permanent home or foster home for him before I leave, I will be forced to take him to a local animal shelter (which means he'll probably end up at Animal Services and even though he's very friendly, he'll likely have a slim-to-none chance of being adopted due to being a Pit mix). 


Reddish-brown Pit Mix, white spot on chest and front feet

Very friendly and lovable with a really good temperament, knows basic commands

Likes to play and likes walks, likes the dog park

Totally housebroken (not one accident in the house, does fine overnight and he'd do fine if left alone while at work). No chewing problems at all :).

Approximately 5 years old but appears to have been very well taken care of vet wise (he's neutered, clean teeth, beautiful coat, no flee problem).

Approximately 50 lbs.

Gets along with other dogs (he even gets along with other Pits) and seems to be well socialized

He did have two cuts on the inside of his ears, so perhaps he escaped from a fence (the cuts weren't bad enough to need stitches and are healing with Neosporen, so no vet bills there).  And he does not appear to be any type of Pit 'fight' dog as his temperament is excellent and he has no other signs of being a 'fight' dog (he still has a long tail, his ears aren't clipped and he's been neutered for quite some time, so he really does appear to have been a pet/inside dog).

Contact Tawny to see the photo.  (He has a very unusual look to him and doesn't look like an average Pit as he's pretty much a solid red color).
