UPDATED 9/12/13 Blue has been rescued by Hanging With Friends Animal Rescue!
This sweet tri-pod baby is Blue A002842, who is now at Redlands Animal Shelter in Southern California, according to a post by Pet Harbor.
Blue was shot by the police when they came into his home to arrest his owners back in 2009. He came into the shelter and with the help of many people after being shot. That's when dog lovers raised money and he had surgery to have his leg amputated.
Blue was then adopted by a great family with kids. He has lived with them for 3 1/2 years now. Unfortunately, Blue was surrendered back to the shelter on August 27 when his family lost their home. He is now about 7 years old.
Blue desperately needs a new home to live out the rest of his life. His previous owner said he isn't great with other male dogs. He does not get along with small dogs/cats either, but may possibly be okay with a large female dog.
Any help is greatly appreciated. The shelter is very full and there are way too many pits right now. Blue is listed on Pet Harbor as a neutered male, gray Pit Bull Terrier, Tri-Pod. Fees are $35.00 to adopt or free transfer to 501(c)3.
Everyone pulled together back in 2009 to get Blue the amputation he needed. Let's see if we can all work together to find him a forever home.
