FOUGHT to KEEP ALIVE in the CAYMAN ISLANDS due to a PITBULL BAN -- for 2 YEARS - his foster in the STATES bailed on him and what was to be a HOME has landed him RIGHT BACK to a HUGE KENNEL full of barking DOGS - 24/7!
=== YOU WON'T BELIEVE HIS STORY! ===
Will ANYONE HELP ME? ● PLEASE ● 2 YEARS in DOGGIE JAIL in the CAYMAN ISLANDS only to be in a HUGE KENNEL in BEDFORD, NY?!!! ==
You may want to keep you MONEY in the CAYMAN ISLANDS but you BETTER NOT TAKE a NICE PIT BULL there!
My name is NELSON (after NELSON MANDELA .... YES -- PLEASE READ!)
I'm now in OSSINING, NY (Westchester)
I've been in boarding over 1,000 DAYS because I was CONFISCATED in the CAYMAN ISLANDS when my owner was imprisoned! PITBULLS are BANNED THERE! Now I am at NorthWinds Kennels and I really NEED HUMAN CONTACT -- I CRAVE people and being touched.
I was NOT ALLOWED HUMAN CONTACT for 2 YEARS! I was SUPPOSED to be EUTHANIZED as a "banned breed" but a NY rescue took it to COURT to SAVE ME! They couldn't KILL ME because of the court case! I was held at a DEPT of AG SHELTER there on the Island- it was HORRIBLE.
It took 2 YEARS for them to get me -- but they FINALLY got me out of that HELL I was in!
Even still, I am SUPER AFFECTIONATE, I have never had any bite history and I am really GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS. I give the BEST KISSES ... I'll do ANYTHING for a TREAT! Oh, and I am told that I "walk BEAUTIFULLY on a LEASH"!
I am NOT good with cats and I just dont like bicycles. A trainer is working with me in Westchester NY and I really want to go home! Don't ya think it's time?!
