Cinnamon is a young female, about 6-9 months old, who weighs a little under 40 pounds and is saddled with the unfortunate title of Pit Bull. The Director of Walton County Animal Shelter has written a description of what it’s like bringing her into the shelter and trying to find her a home. She’s sweet and young and her story is heartbreaking. Take a look and learn about Cinnamon and what the folks who are trying to help dogs like her go through.
Chocolate’s owner was incarcerated and his sister had to bring her to the shelter. When she arrived, there were five kids, all under the age of ten, hanging on “Choc Choc” and kissing her goodbye. She was super sweet with those kids. When she got in the loud kennel, already being a timid and submissive girl, she was quite scared. She was fine with some staff (females and those of the same ethnicity as her owner), slowly crawling toward a kind voice kneeling down in her kennel. But sometimes she was just too fearful with some of us (namely me, an ugly white guy with a baseball hat and big camera) and would try to nip when being leashed. But after over a week here, she has greatly improved. Now, she always runs to the front of her kennel with her tail gently wagging. She retreats a little bit when you enter her run, but gently comes and puts her head in your lap (even mine, the ugly white guy with the baseball hat!). She did fine with her heartworm testing and vaccines. Unfortunately, she tested heartworm positive. But generous sponsors have already pitched in to cover that treatment! She is a smaller sized girl, at just under 30 pounds.
Sable was picked up stray and her owner was notified was didn’t pick her up, and after ten days, Sable waits for a new home. An older Aussie girl, she’s sweet and calm, and has some skin problems and hair loss, but that may clear up when she’s in a home.
“Jasper” is a great dog! A 1-year old, 50-pound Black Labrador Retriever mix. He is social and happy with people and is definitely your best friend. He did great interacting with a couple of other dogs in the shelter, even allowing one playful pup to romp with him and climb all over his back. He looks very healthy and tested heartworm negative. He was picked up stray 3/25/15 and no owner has come looking for him, so he is ready for a new home!
