On June 6, a handsome pit bull mix named "Chief," was surrendered to Animal Friends of the Valleys in Wildomar, Calif., after his military family moved to a base where he was not allowed because of his breed.
The distraught owner of the four-year-old dog wrote:
I had to surrender Chief my 4 year old pitbull because my husband got transferred(Navy) and we're unable to take him. I tried for months to rehome him with no luck. He's at Animal Friends of the Valley in Wildomar 951-674-0618. Please contact Monica rescue coordinator at ex 224. I'll pay the $80 adoption fee, if anyone can please adopt/foster him. He has so much energy and love to give his new family.
On the shelter's adoption site, Chief's profile notes that he is good with other dogs and he likes kids.
Please take a moment to network Chief's information - he did not ask to be here and his former family desperately wants to see him safe, in a loving home.
