The SPCA of Suffolk County NY called on a great animal advocate to assist them in getting a pit bull mix that had been left outside on a chain for about 10 years to safety. He was emaciated, had hot spots and sores on his body from laying on the concrete. He was not only chained to heavy chain, but that chain also had 3 padlocks on it! They rushed him to the vet. He received vaccinations and took blood and a Urinalysis. . The blood work came back saying he is Lymes and Heartworm Positive. He has been treated and is now clear :)
He is non-symptomatic to the Lymes so the vet is not concerned about treatment. He has begun treatment and will remain at his fosters until treatment is complete around June 15th. We are accepting applications now in hopes that his "new owner" will be found and the bonding can begin as soon as possible.
.He does not like cats and would do best in a quieter home. We would prefer to keep him as an only pet. We believe his around 10 years old. Please consider letting this boy live out the rest of his years being loved and learning that being a dog doesn't mean being chained up and neglected.
