Before Pictures & My
I have had a long hard life
in a short amount of time. I was left in a basement to
starve to death! My owner, her brother and his girlfriend were all tried
and convicted of animal cruelty. I think the below pictures tell the
I want to thank the Butler County Dog Warden and the
Animal Friends Humane Society for saving my life and getting justice for
me. It took 3 months but it was worth it!!

As soon as the judge gave
the Animal Friends Humane Society ownership of me I was immediately
released to Harlequin Haven. As you will see from the second set of
pictures I still have a ways to go before being ready for a new home. My
tail is injured and will have to be amputated, I still have skin issues
plus I need to gain more weight. Upon arrival to the rescue I weighted
104 pounds. Although I have been abused and
neglected I still love humans.
Update June 7: I went to the vet yesterday and had a skin
scrapping which was negative, then blood drawn and had my tail
amputated. I now weigh 107.8 pounds so I still have a long way to go
but it sure is fun gaining weight!!
Update June 12: Just a quick update, I now weigh 109.8!! I am
slow at gaining but it sure is fun!! Well it is play time so I am going
to go play!!
June 19: Great News I now weigh 113.4!!!
July 1: Oops I forgot to let you all know that I gained
another pound last week!! I weighed in at 114.4. Only another couple
days and I get weighed in again!!!
Update July 4: Great
News!! I am continuing to gain weight!! I now weigh 116.6! I will have
to get Grandma to take some new pics of me soon to show off how great I
Update July 17: I am
still gaining weight. I now weigh 118.4 pounds!
Update July 24: I have
not been on the scale yet this week. Grandma has been busy with the new
mom and pups but I promise to jump on the scale later this week!

Grandma into taking a new picture of me!!! Aren't I cute!! Check

Update August 7: I am
NOW ready for adoption!! I weigh 125 pounds. Although I can still stand
to gain a few more pounds Grandma said I could start looking for that
forever home!!! I however am afraid of some men and need time to get to
know them before I really like them. Once I know them I am good with
them I just need to know they are not going to hurt me!
Update November 5:
Just figured I would give you a quick update!! So far needless to say no
one has adopted me or even shown any interest in me but HEY that is okay
because I have my family and friends here at the rescue and I am loved
so I am content!! My hair is still thin on my back and Grandma told me
it probably always will be due to the neglect I suffered. But I am
handsome and happy so that is what matters!! Grandma took some new
pictures of me yesterday and I have placed them below!!
Update December 27: I
just wanted to give you a quick update and tell you all about my new
toys I got for Christmas!! I am doing great and especially after Santa
came and gave me all my new toys!! I got a new Wubba, cuz chicken,
nylabone, fleece rope toy and a stuffed whale!! I never had so many new
toys and Santa gave these all just to me!!! I love my new toys so very
much!!! Also I wanted to let you know that I have learned that men are
not all bad it was just the jerks that I lived with before that were
bad!! Thanks to Santa I know men are good!! Okay I have to go play with
my new toys!!!
18: It is hard to believe that a
little over a year ago I was locked in a basement starving to death and
NOW I am a happy healthy boy! Now to find my forever home!!
Update March 24: I am still waiting!!
Come on forever home where are you?
