Behind Shadow's bright eyes and beautiful smile, there lies a very, very sad past. When he was only a few months old, some sick person wrapped him up in a white plastic bag and left him to die a horrible death right in the middle of a train track. An elderly woman who was walking by saw something moving inside the white plastic bag. She ran towards it and found a puppy!
Feeling bad for the little puppy who would have been killed on the train track, this elderly woman took him home, named him Shadow (because it was his "shadow" that first caught her attention and helped her save him), and provided for him as best as she could on a fixed income.
Last year, this elderly woman had a burglary in her home and Shadow was stolen by a few young kids. He was found on the streets, with scrapes all over his body, 48 hours later by Carson Animal Shelter. Sad! He was then reclaimed from the shelter, and is currently being cared for by the elderly woman and our foster volunteers.
Shadow's guardian angel loves him dearly but has decided he would do best in a more stable environment. She would like Shadow to go to a family who has the time and energy to give him longer walks/runs, and has means to give him nutritious food, veterinary care. He hasn't had the best luck so we are all determined to give him a brighter future!
Shadow is now three years old, weighs 81 pounds, and has a clean bill of health. He is microchipped, current on all vaccines, and was neutered. He is completely potty-trained, knows how to sit, come, wait.
To say Shadow has an excellent, loving, friendly personality is quite an understatement. This boy is really the most perfect Pit Bull mix anyone could ever ask for! He gets along with all other animals, cuddles even with tiny Chihuahuas, has been around cats all his life, and is well-mannered! He is such an easy-going boy. He enjoys car rides, plays gently with other dogs, loves kids, you name it!
Shadow deserves a special, loving home. Will it be yours?
