Matty – Adopted!

UPDATE: Matty now Bailey has been adopted!

“Hi Melody! I was just going to email you tonight!!!  Yes, Matty (now Bailey) is here to stay!! He is doing great in his new home, responds to Bailey when called, loves to cuddle, and walks great on a leash now. He’s gotten a haircut and learned to walk up and down stairs, which he was reluctant to do initially.  I’ve gotten him started on a special shampoo and fish oil and vitamins that the vet prescribed to get his hair growing again since he’s got spots with minimal hair growth.  Next step would be the dermatologist’s office if what we are doing doesn’t help with his coat. :). I’m at work right now but will send you pictures tonight or tomorrow!  -Eva”

Brief Bio: Meet Matty! Matty was rescued from a breeding farm where he was used as a stud and kept in a cage for almost all his life. Thankfully a rescuer was able to get him out and into foster. After a vet visit we found out that poor Matty was debarked by the breeding farm that had him. Matty is a sweet boy who is learning how to live outside of a cage and thriving everyday in his foster home. We are looking for a home who will continue to show Matty what it means to be in a home and give him all the love and attention he deserves. Matty is patiently waiting!

How to help?

If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
