He was brought to the AHS Newark facility by an owner/finder because of abnormalities to the front legs.
The owner was trying to groom this pit mix from puppyhood into something much more detestable. From the moment, he was placed into the hands of our staffers, the 2 month old would bite, growl and snap. It was obvious he was not shown any affection or tenderness. Perhaps the owner had visions of a successful fighter or a mean watchdog. Whatever the owner's hopes were, he had not shown any love or compassion -- only a coldhearted, rough attitude to a 2 month old pup.
We call him Hulk and the rough edges have smoothed down with loving hands that hold him. There are two matronly female dogs who play with him so he can perceive that affection and dominance are taught in a favorable and rewarding manner.
We will have a better idea of the front leg care after an examination within the next few days. Stay tuned for an update. Thanks to the Res-Q Fund, we think Hulk will be doing great!
