4-month-old puppy in dire need of a stable home or foster arrangement - quickly!

On Thursday, I was notified by a local veterinarian that there is a 4-month-old puppy in Jackson, MI that is in dire need of a home.

This red-nosed pit bull, is by all accounts sweet, submissive and needs to be adopted or taken into a foster situation. The pressing need? He is to be euthanized on Tuesday 1/19, because of a rule at the facility that he is currently housed, regarding pitties.

Would you consider welcoming this young pup into your life permanently - or even for a temporary basis as a foster parent?

There is one special medical need to consider: this puppy has demodex, caused by a parasitic mite. Demodex is non-contagious and is very treatable with prescription medication. This young fella can indeed make a complete recovery from it, providing that he has the safe, comfortable place to do so, as a stress-free environment is integral to allowing the immune system to work efficiently, helping the skin heal. Additionally, the treatment cost and oversight on that would be assumed by a third party, so the foster family or new owners would not need to bear that financial responsibility.

Please contact me for additional contact information if you think you have the time and resources to share your life with this guy.
