Saving Chad: Calif. high kill shelter puppy broken in spirit with no place to go

Chad is a black and white pit bull puppy; estimated by volunteers not to be more than nine-months old. At a time when puppies should be playing and running around in a backyard as children chase them - all having fun, that isn't even a thought for this broken spirited little pup.

Chad only has one day to be fostered or adopted or accepted by a rescue organization. He's just a puppy who most likely has had one terribly cruel and neglected short life thus far.

So let us begin to learn about this young dog. Click here for Chad's first introduction to the public on his PetHarbor listing. He appears extremely scared and timid.

And here is a volunteer's story who personally spent time with our tiny victim of obvious abuse and neglect As per Sheila Pourteymoor:

"This dog is truly frightened! I talked to him for awhile and he was listening. I would throw in little of pieces of treats to coax him closer to the bars, but when he heard the Velcro of my bag, he ran away again. He's skin and bones and tiny. They are calling him one year old, but he's probably younger than that with a hard life under his belt, but I was able to get a kiss or two on my hands, and that was my big victory."

On Wednesday, Chad had another visitor. As per Pit-a-Boo:

Super sad to see. He just sat there; no confidence in himself and totally abused, like he did something wrong.I tried to talk to him while I was there. I sat in the front of his kennel for 20 min.but he just looked at me like " please do not hurt me...I didn't do anything."
