It's possible that FLAPJACK (#A1889931) was given his name based on 'The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack,' an animated series on TV years ago, because it appears that this 2-year-old, 70-pound meatball had one heck of a misadventure out on the streets. FLAPJACK entered the East Valley Animal Shelter on August 30, as a 'stray', with severe open wounds on his neck and head. Thankfully, the shelter vets cleaned him up and stapled together the 'flap' on his head, keeping him in medical to make sure he would heal. The staples are still in, but FLAPJACK is now out in the general kennels, raring to go. This is one happy boy, and witnessing his playfulness could make anyone smile. FLAPJACK is energetic, and once the staples are removed from his head, he will be a super companion for someone who is active, but who will keep him indoors and close so he can never have a misadventure again. The shelter is at 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA. Go meet this marvelous FLAPJACK! What the people said that found flapjack.: 'This handsome man was found hiding under our van this morning. We are in Arleta near Branford and Canterbury. My husband was able to coax him out with dog cookies. He was a bit fearful at first but came around and is super friendly. It looks like he may have been hit with something, maybe a chain?? His wounds are not new as they already had a lot of pus in them. We flushed the wounds and we gave him water and fed him. He looks pretty young (clean while teeth) and he's intact. We are taking him to EVS to check for a chip. I'll update any info. This info. Is already shared on Nextdoor.'
