Meet Fresh (Forgiving, Friendly, Second Chance Boy)
Hi everyone! I can't tell you how happy I am that you stopped by to say hello. My name is Fresh, and I am a four year old American Bulldog mix. I am a kind, friendly doggie who has suffered through too much in my young life. I am hoping that you will be the special person who gives me the safe, loving home that I so richly deserve.
The first thing you will probably notice about me is that I don't have much fur left on many parts of my body. My skin is visible over much of my body, and it is raw, red, and often very painful to me. I was someone's dog. I was neutered and microchipped and adopted several years ago. For whatever reason, my former owners did not take proper care of me. They allowed me to develop a horrible case of mange and then abandoned me to the streets, injured and afraid. A sweet dog as friendly, kind, and warm hearted as me did nothing to deserve such cruelty.
My mange is treatable -- and curable -- and the nice people here at the shelter are already helping to nurse me back to good health. Please don't be put off by my appearance. My condition is not permanent, and I still love all the things that other doggies love, like playing with toys, snuggling with human friends, and going for long walks.
Although I have suffered at the hands of humans in the past, I truly bear no grudges at all. I approach both friend and stranger in the same social manner, sniffing politely, shaking my rear end, and, quite often, giving out a lick. I hope you will be able to look beyond my appearance and see me as I really am -- a social butterfly with a heart of gold.
I'm a strong, large dog, but I'm gentle and obedient. I already know how to sit, lay down, and give my paw, and I'm eager to learn even more commands. As I start to feel better, more and more of my smart, sunny personality emerges. I'm truly a hidden gem!
Thank you for reading about me! All I need in life now is some love, patience, and a second chance. Might you be the special person to give me these things? I will pay you back by being loving and faithful to you forever. Woof, Fresh xoxo
