Spot3 is an approx 2 yr old (est DOB 02/13/2014) soon to be neutered male American Pit Bull Terrier mix weighing in at approx 60 lbs and is fully grown. Spot3 arrived in WI February 13th, rescued from rural Oklahoma. He is being fostered in Racine. Spot3 and two other dogs were found living on the property of a foreclosed home. They had been there several weeks on their own. The realtor showing the property offered to “dispose of them.” These three dogs have been shot at with BB guns and were forced to seek shelter under the deck at the property until that flooded during the December rain storms. Local animal advocates brought them straw to make a makeshift shelter for them until rescue could be found. As the Oklahoma weather became colder, Spot3 and the others were rounded up and moved to an outdoor, mostly unsupervised boarding facility in hopes of buying them even more time to locate a rescue. Unfortunately, due to an overpopulation of dogs in the southern states, local Oklahoma rescues were unable to step up and help, so we here in WI did! Looking at Spot3 you can tell he’s had a rough life. His body is riddled in scars, he has some skin issues that are resolving now that he’s on good food/supplements and is being kept indoors.
He walks well on a leash and in general is fine with most other calmer dogs. The uncertainty of never knowing when his next meal will be provided to him has made Spot3 food aggressive towards other dogs (he has NOT exhibited any of this behavior towards people) so he would need to be fed separately from other dogs and fed bones, etc. in a crate or away from others. He is has been fine with kids over age 6 (unknown how he is with younger kids), cats unknown. So far, he has displayed behavior consistent with being low-moderate energy level. His adoption fee has been reduced to $100+tax in hopes of finding Spot3 his furever home quickly. His adoption fee includes neuter, rabies/distemper/bordetella vaccines, microchip, dewormed, heartworm negative and on preventative and health certificate from veterinarian.
