A special request has been made for a homeless dog who is currently housed at an animal shelter in Santa Barbara, Calif.
The dog's name is "Foz," and he is dying from cancer.
The seven-year-old boxer/pit bull mix, is expected to live for mere months...not years, and the facility is hoping that Foz can spend his last days in a home, rather than a lonely kennel run.
The effort to find Foz a loving, comfortable place to die has turned to Facebook. The following post is currently circulating on Foz's behalf:
He is about 7 yrs old, 70 lbs, neutered. He needs a loving hospice foster for his last few (2-3) months. Friendly with people but it is not known about other animals. Please network him. He cries out when he hears people.
The following information is from Foz's Petharbor post:
My name is Foz- ID#A366175. I am a neutered male, brown Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 7 years old. I have been at the shelter since Aug 28, 2013.
Anyone who believes that they are able to assist Foz should contact the facility at: (805) 681-5285
