Portland, OR – You may recall Shimmer – an at-risk Pit Bull who was looking for rescue from the Multnomah County Animal Services facility.
When Shimmer’s story was initially shared back in April, her situation was dire.
Not only is Shimmer a black dog, but she is a Pit bull – adding to her list of adoptability difficulties was a terrible skin condition, believed to be caused by allergies.
Shimmer had lived a difficult life – her body showed evidence of repeatedly being bred. She was infested with fleas.
Shimmer had never been a treasured companion to anyone.
She wasn’t the type of dog that typical adopters are looking for when they walk the aisles of dogs in a shelter…
But Shimmer’s story continues on.
Shimmer didn’t die at the shelter – she was rescued and today she is a different dog.
Look what a good diet, love and attention can do for a dog.
Shimmer’s coat is glossy and thick – her eyes are full of joy.
According to Mikey’s Chance, the rescue that saved her, she is ready for adoption.
A few tidbits shared from her rescuers:
Shimmer is wonderfully sweet and mellow, yet she enjoys playing.
She greets new people in a friendly manner. She loves to retrieve, play tug, and take naps. She greets other dogs with a wagging tail.
She has never growled nor shown any behavior but love!
In other words, this gorgeous girl is a well-rounded, affectionate dog who is going to make someone an excellent companion.
The final piece to any rescue situation is the most important one of all – the adoption.
Please help Shimmer find her forever family so that her rescue organization can move on to help the next “Shimmer” who is currently at risk at an animal control facility.
