Plea for a sweet, starved dog in need of a chance

See also

One beleaguered, pit bull mix, is in desperate need of a chance in Salisbury, N.C. The dog's name is "Bruce" and his body speaks of a sad life of suffering.

Bruce's face is scarred and his bones are too prominent - in fact, every bone on his body stands out with painful definition.

Bruce is currently at the Rowan County Shelter - his last "adoptable day" is on Tuesday, January 7.

The following information has been shared about Bruce:

ID# 58195 - Bruce is a male pitbull blend. This poor sweet soul came to the shelter as a stray. He is desperate to find a forever home willing to love and care for him.

One dog in need of one compassionate person who is willing to offer hope, love and kindness.

Contact information:

For more information, please contact the shelter. Adoption fee $70 for neuter and one one year rabies vaccination: Rowan County Shelter (Salisbury, NC) 704-216-7768/7770/7771
