My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Ghost is a young bouncy 41 lb of love. He didn't have the most wonderful life in his short 18 months. Chained out to a fence where he had a dog box not insulated for winter cold or shaded from hot sun. Chain would tangle and left him no room to move. His eyes were goobed shut most the time, he had a condition where his eye lashes were turned inward rubbing his eyes. (Entropion) So he spent his short life in very miserable condition. He came into rescue and went to a foster home. He's adapting to his surroundings and is so bouncy & happy fellow. He had his eyes fixed and have to wait 2 weeks to have the stitches removed. But now he can see and his eyes are not pasted shut. What a great thing it is for him to be able to see & not wonder who or what is coming towards him. He will need some patience, for he hasn't had much experience in a house. So a belly band might be helpful till he learns not to lift in the house. He needs a gentle touch and someone that has the time to put into him. You won't regret it, he's gonna make someone a wonderful companion.
