Craig, a pit bull, was LABELED A HIGH RISK BEHAVIOR DOG BY SHELTER STAFF. An LA based rescue adopted Craig to save him from being PTS. AC Officers pulled Craig from his kennel on a catch pole, handling him without regard for his human induced fear. Craig had an adopter who could not work with his behavior and he was returned to the rescue after 1 day. Immediately following which the rescue's trainer declined to work with him. After one week, Craig had begun to exhibit highly aggressive behavior and the rescue's Board of Directors made a determination to humanely euthanize him. ADP was approached to by a Volunteer Animal Advocate who had taken personal interest in Craig and his story, knowing our experience with behavior challenged dogs. We worked with the the pulling rescue to secure the necessary vetting he'd not yet had for double ear infections, and removal of a mast cell tumor removal on his side through our non-profit vetting contacts. Craig has come into ADP's family without support, without funds. Craig was let down AGAIN by humans who created his fear and now want to end his life. ADP's plan is to engage a professional behavioralist and trainer, and provide a tranquil environment where Craig will feel safe and secure. He is not a lost cause! Let's right the wrongs done to Craig and give him his chance to learn self control and trust, from people who genuinely care about his life, happiness and future. The Animal Debt Project believes in Craig, do you? Help us take a step to righting the wrongs done to Craig. In partnership we can make changes in Craig's life that will give him freedom from the chains of abuse and fear.
