***UPDATE: We couldn’t be happier to share that GARLIC, our adorably derpy English Bulldog/Pitbull mix, possibly gifted with a bit of dwarfism, has found his way home to mom Lorraine, fur-sis Daisy and two kitty siblings. Garlic stole everyone’s heart, especially after Sophie Gamand Photography’s stunning portrait session with him which led us to Garlic’s new mom!
After having spent his entire life (5 years!) living outside of a warehouse as a “guard dog” (he was awful at it, he’s just too much of lover!) Garlic will be spending the rest of his life in a loving home. His skull growth, diagnosed as calvarial hyperostosis, which caused his left eye to go blind, is not even a factor in his life anymore. Happy life, Garlic, you are certainly a very special, one-of-a-kind dog!
Special thanks to Beth, Garlic’s foster mom, who lovingly cared for him while he waited for a home for over two months. Beth went above and beyond for Garlic and we are beyond grateful to have her in our MBC family! Happy Tails Garlic, Lorraine, Daisy & Kibbles!***
GARLIC HAS LIVED A LIFE OF SUFFERING AND NEEDS A HOME WHERE HE WILL BE LOVED AND CHERISHED FOREVER!
Imagine this: For 5 long years you & your sister are tied to a warehouse. Tied there every day & every night for 5 winters and 5 summers. Still tied to the warehouse when there’s 3 feet of snow on the ground and when the temperature soars above 100 degrees. One day you get hit by a delivery truck, severely injuring your head & eye and nobody does anything. You never see a Vet. You have scars all over your body, from suffering years of fly & mosquito bites. During these years of misery, you get by and survive because you have your sister their with you and no matter what you have each other. On those freezing cold winter nights, you huddle together to keep from freezing. On all those lonely, hungry weekends when the warehouse is closed and there’s nobody around to feed you or interact with you, you get by because you have your sister. You don’t want her to be depressed, so you play games with her to help pass the time until somebody comes back Monday and eventually feeds you both. You have callouses all over from laying on the rough cement because they didn’t even let you roam the warehouse property, they kept you tied to it.
Now after 5 years of this, the warehouse closes and you & your sister are no longer needed to deter intruders, so you’re both dumped at a high kill shelter. And then the worst happens…You are separated from your sister. You cry and thrash but, she is still taken away. And you are left all alone in a terrifying place.
Sadly this isn’t fiction, this is exactly what sweet Garlic’s life has been for the last five years. But, luckily his life is changing for the best! He’s been rescued by Mr Bones and Co. They have him seeing their wonderful Veterinary team and getting his injuries all worked up and fixed! And he has a wonderful foster home in Jersey City, NJ.
But, this little Angel still needs a loving FOREVER home, where he will never again know suffering and neglect. If you can give Garlic all that he deserves and was so unfairly denied in his first 5yrs of life, please email: [email protected] or submit an adoption application at: http://mrbonesandco.org/foster-application/
MBC adopts to NY/NJ/PA/CT/MA/RI Garlic is 5yrs old, UTD, good with dogs and did well on his shelter eval. He’s also good with people and strangers. But, he will require patient family as this poor dog has had his whole world turned upside down and he’s never had a home before. He may need time to adjust. But, he so worth it!!
