A couple of readers have sent in information about this little Pibbers. He is estimated to be 8 months old and has until tomorrow at 5pm to make bail. One of our readers met the dog and took these photos. I asked for a blurb about the li’l feller:
I would say he is a good candidate for rehab and would make someone a great pet when he has had some medical care and training. He obviously has been severely mistreated but it did not break his spirit in the least. The minute he laid eyes on us he started wagging his tail, his whole backside was wagging and wiggling, and he looked so happy. He loved being petted but was also quite interested in exploring the “outside” world out of his cage. He needs love, training and good food but seems to have that “look at me, I am a sweet loving dog and I want to be loved” attitude – not fearful, not nervous, not aggressive – none of that showed in the time I was with him, although it was brief. But you can tell the dogs who are cowering in their cages, who look at you with the “I’ve been through so much, I don’t like people anymore” look in their eyes, and he did none of that. Just “let me out, love me, let me out!”.
