Mr. Nielsen is a small 1 1/2 year old neutered boy, in UTAH HUMANE SOCIETY. He is a brindle with very nice markings, although I did not note the classic diamond wrinkles on his head. He is a purebred.
His story is his family says he is good with kids, but they had a new baby and decided he had to go.:mad:
I met him at PETSMART!!:mad::mad:
He's a very sweet boy. Curious, but slightly aloof. He did not mind being handled at all and did not flinch or pull back when I got "personal" with him. The end of his tail appears to have been lost to tail rot as a baby. (I suspect he is the product of that BYB/Puppy-mill here in SLC.) His breeding appears to have been done poorly.
The young lady I spoke with, UHS staff, said they would be willing to work with a rescue group and allow him into foster care until a suitable home could be found. He has been in rescue since 07 May. This is not a no-kill shelter, although they will keep an animal as long as possible before resorting to euthanasia.
I hope we can at least find someone who understands our beautiful breed who can foster him until he can be homed. The foster family has final say in whether a home is appropriate or not.
He can be seen online at utahhumane(dot)org. He is animal #043581.
