He had once been someone's beloved dog …. and he returns that love in full measure. A good samaritan found him as a Newark stray with a harness that had become deeply embedded over his entire body. The adorable pit has been nicknamed "Nutella" and is about 9 months old. He has full adult teeth but still has disproportionately large paws.
Due to his young age, we wonder if he had been given to someone as a Christmas gift that was carelessly handled? Or did he stray or was he stolen?
Nutella was sent to the Animal Emergency & Referral Associates (AERA) in Fairfield for immediate care and surgery. Since fluid is collecting under the sutures, they have put in drains and will also neuter him.
The vet techs at AERA have made Nutella the Valentine of the month and are fielding any inquiries for adoption while he is there. Anyone wishing to adopt Nutella can either e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
