Meaty is a young 'PitMix', we beileve he is under 1 yr. We don't know what he is mixed with, but he is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. I adopted Meaty from the Essex County animal shelter on Saturday, January 31st? He was abused and on puppy death row. We (D and I) didn't plan on getting a puppy we were just going to see about the shelters requirements for adopting a dog, but we just coudln't resist this timid gentleman. We got him home and gave him a bath... and he is doing very well.
Meaty weighs about 45 lbs. and has a fur less line all the way aaround his neck where his previous owner kept his collar, or chain way too tight. Hopefully Meaty has found his forever home, at my friend D's house. So far JohnWayne (her son- 5yrs) claims Meaty to be his best friend, and BabyGeorgia (daughter-1 and 1/2) just loves on him and tiptoes around the house cooing "gawgie, gawggie". Sunday she used him as a step stool to get up onto the counch, he didn't move a muscel except to lick her feet once she was up there. He doesnt try to get on the couch. As far as we can tell he doesn't bark, which is prooving interesting to know when he's got to do his business, but he seems to understand that he's supposed to go outside, just hasn't figured out how to comunitcate to us yet.
Wish us luck.
