A neighbor found a very sweet, well-behaved, housebroken, neutered male pitbull in the middle of East Capitol St. at 14th St. early this morning. David James is walking around the neighborhood and parks to see if anyone recognizes the pup. He took him to the area vets this morning, but no one recognized him, and he is chipped, but it was never activated. The vet figured he was around a year old. David’s landlord is insisting that the dog be out of his apartment by the end of the day today. David’s contact info is 202-489-1107, and his email is DJLantz(at)me.com. I am emailing for him because he is continuing to wander the streets looking for the dog’s owners. Can you please post his picture to see if anyone recognizes, or is willing to take this guy in? He seems like a great dog.
I actually have an update from David as of a few minutes ago. He checked back in with the Humane Society, who said a man came in asking for a dog matching the pup’s description, The guy refused to leave his name or information, and the person at the shelter said they would have hesitated to turn the dog over, even if he had been there. So, David is now looking for someone who might be willing to adopt this good boy.
