Meet AJ, a 6 1/2 year old male chocolate tri-color with blue merle markings. He was picked up by the city at his home quite a distance from this rescue in NC because his owner no longer wanted him. The shelter contacted rescue. Right after he came to CCR it was very obvious that he had been badly mistreated and abused and it took a long time for him to regain his trust of humans, especially women.
By working with him, he has learned to enjoy being rubbed and he likes some attention. He will do best in a home with no children or cats and no other dogs. He could possibly be with a very easygoing dog social pal. His new owner will need to be patient, very caring, and a strong alpha personality to continue his journey towards a new life so that he can be a good companion. Simply put, he just needs someone who can accept him as he is (he has a 1 to 2 grade heart murmur) and just help him work through the bad times/good times that are obviously due to his past life and how he was so mistreated. He has gotten rid of the huge chip that he had on his shoulder, but it doesn't just go away that easy.....and that's where he needs your help.... someone to give him a chance and also a good life!
AJ is current on shots, neutered and heartworm negative. Are you the person to help him enjoy a better life, give him his 2nd chance
to have someone care about him and help him to be a great companion?
