Auggie's Story...
Someone spotted Auggie this 3-5 year old dalmatian-bull dog mix in the area of East 31st Street and West River Road in Sheffield back in August. He weighed only 30 pounds and was unable to walk. Patrolman Rick Broz immediately took Auggie to Dr. Thomas Wood at the Lorain Animal Clinic. Auggie had been starved and kept in a cage for months. Dr. Wood said it was one of the worst cases of neglect he's ever seen. After lots of tender loving care from the Clinic, Friendship and super foster Ron Straub, Auggie is healthy and happy again, back at Friendship and waiting for his forever home.

This is what Auggie's foster dad had to say about him..."Auggie is a true survivor. A few videos can be seen on the website by clicking on search and typing Auggie or the Friendship APL Facebook site. I fostered him for nearly a month and found him to be a really great dog. Auggie was easy to adapt to his foster home and quiet in his kennel. He never had to coaxed, I just told him to go in his kennel and he went. The last week he slept at the foot of my bed. He is house trained if you keep him on a schedule. A word of warning, Aug is mischievous if left alone. It's best to kennel him if you're not going to be home. He's not destructive just curious. He will get into things that he can reach. He still has some puppy behavior in that he feels things with his mouth and likes to play with your hand. Scolding him will cause him to cower. He should outgrow this behavior. He is a smart dog and learned to sit and stay quickly. Auggie is street wise and has a healthy fear of cars on the road. He still needs some work on his leash training." Auggie is with his foster dad Ron, in the first photo.

Auggie is a strong boy that was well behaved in his foster home. You can see what Auggie looked like in the last photo of the post. He's come a long way! Auggie would be so appreciative to find the loving home he's never had. Stop by Friendship soon and adopt Auggie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Auggie, a Elyria Dalmatian/American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dalmatian/American Bulldog for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Dalmatian/American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Elyria breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dalmatian/American Bulldog breeders who help with Dalmatian/American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
