A few weeks ago, we were contacted by a man named KJ looking for advice. A pit bull appeared in his neighbor’s alleyway and he noticed that the dog was outside all the time over the course of a few days. One morning KJ went to the fence and saw that the dog looked cold, wet, and hungry. He fed him through the fence and was saddened to realize how neglected this friendly pup was.
This kindhearted man decided to do something. KJ wrote a note and put it in his neighbor’s mailbox. The note stated, “Please give me a call if you are unable to care for the dog outside.” The neighbor called and asked him to take their dog. KJ and his wife have a dog of their own and a 2-month-old baby, but this didn’t stop him from doing what he knew was right. He took the dog home, bathed him, and decided he would do whatever he could to find him a new home. He also named the dog Chance.
Philadoptables made arrangements to pay for Chance to be neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped at Emancipet’s Philly location. It’s always ideal for dogs to be spayed or neutered before being adopted to
control the population (and for health reasons!).
KJ had a friend that offered to hold Chance until a home was found after his neuter surgery. And you can imagine how this ended. The friend, named Duffy, fell in love with Chance and decided to adopt him. Chance now has a Newfoundland sister named Freyja and he is living his best life in his new home.
