Abandoned and shot down by those he trusted, Wesley should have lost all faith in humans... but he didn't. Ever faithful and loving, this big boy is truly an ambassador of the breed. Let's show him some love! More ...

Wesley is a 5 yeard old pitbull. He was abandoned with 15 other animals in a Detoit home. When police arrived, they kicked in the front door. Wesley was the unfortunate soul to wander out first. The people he so willingly trusted and was looking to for help opened fire on him, hitting him 5 times. Riddled with bullets, Wesley was scooped up by a kind neighbor and rushed to a veterinary hospital. This person witnessed the incident and recognized the assault was unprovoked. Miraculously, Wesley survived. He did have to have one leg amputated and one foot reconstructed. You will also notice in his photo that he is missing a few teeth where bullets somehow passed through his body without killing him.

During his rehabilitation, Wesley has been living with his rescue organization's trainer. He is positively brilliant. He is dog and cat friendly, good with all people and pets, and he is now fully trained! WE WANT TO ADD WESLEY TO OUR FAMILY! We also want to raise some funds for his rescue group, who invested over a year of time, funds and resources to provide this dog a much deserved second chance. Please give what you can and help us reach our goal!
