This poor boy is Denver, a 3 year old Pittie mix with an unfortunate past. When we found Denver, infected wounds and sores covered his whole body. He was weak, emaciated, and very run down. With the help of food, medical care, and lots of love, he has made great strides in recovery! Denver still has a little gimp in his left rear leg as the abscess on that knee was the worst one of them all. He may always have a little "hitch in his giddy up", but he hopes that will not deter any future families away. He looks for love and seems to crave it very much. We believe Denver has always lived outside, so he will require a patient family while he learns the ways and rules of an indoor family pet. We are really rooting for this boy to find his happily ever after that he deserves so much. With a history as rocky as his, Denver still has an outstanding personality. He is friendly with other dogs and appears to be okay with cats. We bet that he will love kids as much as he has loved everyone here. Denver's adoption fee is $160 and includes his vaccines, deworming, fecal exam, heartworm test, registered microchip, and neuter. Please don't pass this guy up for his imperfections. He deserves a chance, too!
