Hyde Park Cats who contacte me. After keeping him safe last night, Laura had to relinquish him to Animal Welfare League this afternoon where he will at least be safe from cars and mean people.
This is a truly unique looking dog. He is shaped just like a Rottie, but he has adorable wire hair on his face and back like an Irish terrier or airedale. He's darling. He is understandably timid, but has a calm energy. He did not seem to care about my dogs when we passed him in the park.
While this dog is very temporarily safe at AWL, his prospects are not good unless someone steps up to foster him. CBBR would be happy to pull him if we have a firm commitment from a responsible, experienced dog person who is willing to provide Rottie Man with a loving home until he is adopted. If you think you're up to the task, please fill out an application to foster at http://www.chicagolandbullybreedrescue.org/. If you are with another rescue, please know that Hyde Park Cats has offered to contribute toward this fellow's vet care/neuter. This dog can be visited at AWL's intake facility, but--as is their policy with all dogs--can only be pulled by a rescue group.
Please share this post with others who might be able to help.
