Adopt Gates (Fostered in New England) a Tan/Yellow/Fawn - with White Pit Bull
Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Gates!Gates is a attractive blonde (for lack of a better description of his unique color) Pitbull mixture! We are completely captivated by his terrific looks! Gates was an owner surrender at a local high kill shelter in Memphis TN. We are so happy we could spring him from there on August third! Gates is only 6 mnths old and currently weighs 28 lbs. He is mostly house broken, crate trained, fun, calm, and not to mention the obvious - he is absolutely 'STUNNING' ! Gates seems to know some basic commands. We would prefer a home with Pitbull experience. Gates has been neutered and is up to date on his vaccinations. After a short time in our foster's home it became evident that our attractive boy has some orthopedic issues so off to the veterinarian he went. He was examined and X-rayed. Gates has some issues with his left hip in particular, that may or may not require surgery after he completes growing. The bones have some micro fractures around them causing him some pain and weakness. As time goes on (in a few months) those fracture could grind themselves down and may become smooth. If this doesn't happen he could need FHO surgery. So, in a nutshell, his adopters will need to be aware of his medical situation and willing to do what it takes for him. Hopefully there is someone willing to take on this gorgeous boy even with his prognosis! Gates is currently in TN but will be transported north to New England for adoption at the end of August. The adoption donation is $350 which includes a health certificate and transport north. *Unless stated otherwise, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, on flea/tick product and heartworm prevention medicine (if older than 5 mons) and micro-chipped prior to adoption.*Please note that while we do our best to accurately state the breed or breed mixture of a dog, we often have very limited information to draw from. Identifying the breed without pedigrees and details on heritage can be very challenging! If you are interested in adopting 1 of our animals, please go to www.angelsamongusanimalrescue.org and fill out an on-line adoption form. Thank you! Massachusetts Residents : Effective September 28, 2017 a Quarantine Fee of $120 will be required (in addition to the adoption payment) to adopt a dog that has been Quarantined. Massachusetts mandates that all dogs entering MA shall be quarantined for 48 hours in a state approved facility.
