URGENT!! LOOKING FOR A HERO/BEST FRIEND
Jefferson Parish East Bank Shelter,
"Martin" Staffordshire Terrier Mix Male
Martin is a 2-3 year old male, found stray. He had been tied to a tree with a very heavy chain, and was emaciated, weighing only 25 lbs., when he arrived at the shelter. The Animal Control Officer that picked him up fell in love with him and checks on him every day to see if he has found a home. Martin is gentle, very responsive/focused to treats so he will be easy to obedience train and we suspect he is housetrained. Martin prefers to wait until he is taken outdoors and keeps his kennel as clean as possible. He is very selective with other dogs, so he would need a "meet and greet" prior to going to a home with other dogs. This angel is currently on the euthanasia list, as he has been at the shelter since the beginning of May, 2015 and is suffering from severe shelter depression disorder. He turns himself away from the front of his kennel and has started losing weight. The shelter has agreed to give Martin two weeks to find his hero, a best friend, prior to euthanasia; as this may be the most compassionate decision at this time. Please Share.
