The San Bernardino City Animal Shelter classifies black and white Andrew as a pit bull, but volunteers think the affectionate and adorable one-year-old looks more boxer breed or an American bulldog.

Andrew entered the shelter on July 10, and Thursday, July 17 was his expected exit date. Luckily, Andrew has not been euthanized, and hopefully this article will help to find him an emergency foster home or an approved rescue organization. Volunteers say Andrew's ears are raw and inflamed; likely the result of painful fly bites.

Volunteer Sheila Pourteymoor stated, that Andrew was
"such a sweet boy! He came and laid by the bars; just let me stroke his head and his body."
