Dougan a pit bull mix is a rescued adoption success story out of Toledo Ohio area. He came to the Toledo Area Humane Society in December 2015 through their cruelty department. He was living on a chain in a backyard with no food, shelter or water and was very shy when he came in the shelter.
His forever family recently shared an update
I brought Dougan home and it’s been a pretty rough month. We came out on the other side in great shape though. He’s still not thrilled with my daughter, but will lay in the same room finally. He still feels more comfortable in his crate than roaming the house, and doesn’t want to go for walks. He will, however, prance around the yard like a tail-wagging rabbit at 2 in the morning! He’s finally eating 2 meals a day, I’m still trying to push it to 3, but he doesn’t seem interested. One way or another, I’m gonna get rid of those pokey ribs!! He finally started coming out of the crate on his own when I let him out in the morning, and still jumps through his skin at every bump or knock (I’m tremendously clumsy), but he recovers a lot faster! I’m so happy to have met him and every day gets a little better. Thank you for bringing us together!”
