Fire Fighter Terrified in Shelter
Coat length:
Fire Fighter- 10 years, unaltered, male, 9.8lbs     Fire Fighter has the most adorable snaggle tooth- there's NO denying it. Unfortunately, this little guy is just terrified in our care, despite his strong (and very misleading) name. At our shelter, poor Fire Fighter hardly wants to exit his kennel to even go outside for potty breaks, and would much rather lay in bed, tucked deeply into his blankets.   Upon examination, our vets noted that Fire Fighter has some nuclear sclerosis, an underbite, and will need a dental. A full medical summary can be provided upon request.   While we're hoping an owner comes forward for him, we'd love to have rescue lined up just in case, where Fire Fighter can rest comfortably in a quiet environment and finally decompress and feel safe. BARCS is OUT of dog space and Fire Fighter is available immediately for pick-up.   Please let us know if your organization can help!
