Dog of the Month,
Hi friends, Slim Shady here, the handsome 2 year old Pit Mix with a reminder that I’m still available for adoption!
You may remember me when a medical fund was posted for me in March. I was in terrible shape. I was malnourished, missing hair, and my poor paws were a mess; I was missing the top layer of all my paw pads and my nails had curled over. When I first arrived at Lakeshore PAWS, I was sad, scared and in pain. With a lot of TLC from staff members and volunteers, I finally knew what it was like to be loved.
It took me some time to trust. Slowly but surely, I started to put on weight, my hair started to grow back as shiny as ever, and my paws healed after many manicures. I ended up getting adopted in April, but sadly it didn't work out and I was returned to the shelter. I understand though; it just wasn’t my perfect match. So here I am, back at the adoption center waiting for the right family.
I love playing fetch, TENNIS BALLS, belly rubs and ear scratches! My ideal home would be pretty calm and not extremely overstimulating because I do get stressed at times due to my past experiences. I would also love for my family to have a fenced in yard with grass that I can romp around in! I love all people I meet, but sometimes it takes me a few minutes to warm up completely to new friends. I’m also not very keen on other dogs and would prefer to be the only dog in the home.
I hope to meet my new family soon! When you come to visit me and get to know my goofy and loving self, hopefully you’ll know I’m the right boy for you.
Love, Slim Shady
