Meet Abraham

Abraham is a 2 yr old, 42 lb, male Pit Bull & ShihTzu mix. Yeah, that's right! Appearance of a Pit Bull, but a smaller size. Abe was surrendered along with 7 other dogs when the family was evicted from their rental. All had fleas, but he and his 2 biological siblings had fur loss due to flea dermatitis and NONE of the 8 dogs were spayed or neutered. Poor little Abe was one of the most scared of all 8 dogs. He was terrified of the new surroundings and new people. Although hungry, he would not accept treats or even eat food from his bowl unless people were not in the room. He would come out of his kennel into the room with hesitation, but after an hour or so, he accepted staff into his kennel, but would keep his distance. He slowly came closer as he allowed the stafff member inside to pet him. In minutes, he was laying between her legs marveling at the affection. Abraham and his siblings were also terrified of the outside world. The first few days we had to almost drag them out of the threshold of the doorway between inside and outside. Once outside, they continuously tried to turn back to come inside. Each day we made them stay outside just a little more and their short walks got longer each day.Abe now can't get close enough to those he is familiar with. Although he was reluctant to get in the car to go to the vet 2 days later, once inside he rode fine, but he whined because he wanted to be in the front by his comforting human friend. On the way back, we obliged him and had his human in the back with him. Again, he curled up in her lap as close to her torso as he could get and fell asleep for the rest of the ride!We are looking for a home that has time to make Abe feel special and that he matters. He needs someone who likes to cuddle as much as he does. He seems to get along with other dogs, although he and his unneutered brother got into a scuffle in the suv packed with 3 people and 8 dogs as they left the only home they knew and were brought & surrendered to the shelter. Abraham has been nothing but friendly to staff, the vet, his canine brother and the other dogs since being in our custody. The previous owner also stated he is good with cats. After treating his skin and giving him some time to heal, he is now neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, & microchipped. If interested in providing patience, love, and TLC to this young boy, please contact Vicki@nokillarc.org or 570-784-3669 ext 1
