Curt, neutered male, 5 years old, 73 Lbs.
Hi my name is Curt. Please do not be deceived by my look. I am just a big boy but born with the sweetest and easy going nature. I never had a home not until I was rescued by my foster mom. My sibling and I were abandoned at a rural side. It was so difficult to find food, so we decided to walk down to the city. We walked so far away and finally made it to a food market. When we saw food, we were thrilled! Before we stepped further, there were people lifting clubs toward us to scare us away. We were so scared and ran away. Under fear, I lost sight of my brother and sister to end up hiding in a dark alley. I was so sad. I couldn’t understand why people were so meant to us. That night, I fell asleep with lots of questions and sorrow. When dawn came, I overheard some footsteps came near me. I was so frightened and didn’t know what to do. Suddenly a lady showed up, before I dodged, she crouched down to hand me a bowl of food. “Is it a miracle or what?” I stepped back with fearful eyes. The lady must capture my fear. She put down the food and walked back waiting for me to eat. Perhaps I was just too hungry. Not for long, I started to eat the food and feeling so thankful! After I finished the feast. The lady came toward me, petted me so nicely. I was so touched and feeling safe for the first time in my life.
We soon went to an animal hospital. The vet gave me a thorough physical checkup. Luckily I wasn’t getting any disease but due to my age and size, I have minor hip join issue. My rescuer, so is foster mom took me home. She gave me housetrained and give me hip join supplement. She takes very good care of me. In return, I gave her all my trust and behaved well. I love my doggies friends at home. We always make lots of laughter! When I walk out to the park, some people tended to walk away from me just because of my size. From time to time, my foster mom keeps telling people that I am the sweetest boy she has ever met. Although I love all creatures and enjoy being around with children, dogs and people. I don’t like cats. Now I’m looking for a forever home who will treasure my loyalty and enthusiastic temperaments. For sure I’ll give you lots of cuddles in return!
