Chubba is still very young. His DOB is 2/13/17. He is a lab/dalmation mix. He lived a miserable six months here on this earth before coming to us and our goal to make the rest of his life a good one. He was 'dumped' way before he was old enough to care for himself. He ended up in an area that was filled with Porcupine and had the needles all over his body - especially his face. He had to be live trapped to get him. He was absolutely terrified and is still leary of humans but is coming around vey slowly. It took almost two months for his sores to heal and for him to 'tolerate' being touched but he is doing better - all physical wounds are healed and he is now coming to the gates looking for attention, he will not in and out voluntarily without being forced. We put him in with a more outgoing dog and that has helped tremendously. He requires a loving and PATIENT home. He is not a 'love you to death' type of puppy. You will have to earn that love through lots and lots of patience. He does great with other dogs and is getting more and more curious about all of the attention they get. He would probably be best in a home with another dog to help him finish coming out of his shell (a non-aggressive dog of course). He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but as with any fearful dog - he could bite - so therefore no young children for this beautiful baby. His adoption fee is $100.00. If you think you have the patience and love for this young guy, please go to our website and complete an adoption application you will find that at www.patriotsforpets.com He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. A fenced in yard will be required for him since he is too scared to walk on a leash.
