Owensboro, KY – Jethro has all the makings of an ideal companion. He adores going for rides in the car, he loves to play ball, he is affectionate with people and great with other dogs.
Jethro likes to snuggle and watch TV – and he adores a good tummy rub.
Jethro is fixed, microchipped and up to date on his shots – this dog has it all.
What could possibly be an issue with such a well-rounded boy?
Not long ago, Jethro nearly died at a kill shelter. He was saved by a 16 yr-old girl who rescued him just in the nick of time.
This was the girl’s first rescue attempt – she was going to foster Jethro until he could find a home.
But things at home are not going well – her mother wants Jethro to go because she is having an allergic reaction.
Jethro may end up at the same shelter where he was nearly killed.
At 10 years of age, it is unlikely that Jethro will make it out alive. Even though he is nearly perfect.
You can see Jethro’s gentle soul in his eyes.
He is the type of dog who longs to receive (and share) love.
A Facebook page has been set up in an effort to find Jethro a new place to rest his paws. You can access his “fan page” at this link.
Those who are aware of Jethro’s situation do not want to see Jethro back at the kill shelter and they do not want to see a big-hearted child’s first rescue attempt end in what would likely be sure death if Jethro is sent back…
