This stunning guy was found dumped in a small neighborhood here in Houston. He was exhausted dragging a broken chain around a very infected chest. We have been working with a holistic vet who helps us address a whole health approach to heal both his mental and physical state.
Ferdinand‘s Foster is currently using a muzzle with him when they go out and about in their neighborhood. This is used to give Ferdinand a feeling of security when he comes in contact with other dogs. When people were informed of Ferdinand‘s Love and Affection for humans he quickly became a neighborhood celebrity and has left a lasting impression on children and adults alike.
We are looking for an adopter who understands ferdi and can be an advocate for both his physical and emotional needs. Overtime as this guy learns to trust, he will no longer need a muzzle. If you are ready to be an advocate for change, for crushing the “perception” dogs like Ferdi are judged for everyday.... then this guy has been working hard waiting to hear from you.
Ferdinand is 82 pounds, 3-5 years old, neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. Please fill out an application or send an email to if you are interested in Ferdinand.
