When Abbott here was 4 months old, he ingested a corncob, which quickly got stuck in his intestines. Despite his obvious distress, his human family refused to have him treated.
Fortunately for this goofy young Dane mix, Humane Society of Tuolumne County took custody and got him to the vet pronto—but it took two surgeries, several months, and many worried tears before he was out of the woods. Through it all, he never lost his happy, affectionate disposition and playful spirit, and now he's looking for a family (preferably with older kids and another dog) to share them with.
Thanks to his digestive misadventure, which ended up costing him a portion of his intestines, Abbott needs regular medication and a special diet, but he's a healthy, active guy who can't wait to settle in with the people who will take him for car rides, give him belly rubs, and love him forever. Stop by HSOTC's shelter in Jamestown to visit him, or check out his web page.
Rescuing dogs like Abbott and keeping them safe till they find their new families is just part of no-kill HSOTC's work for animal welfare in Tuolumne County. The organization also provides low-cost spay/neuter services, offers humane education—and also hosts epic fundraiser events, like the South Pawsific Champagne Brunch on April 17.
