A dog found near Payne Elementary School has found a foster home.
The dog, who was affectionately named “Mr. Puppy” by the woman who found him tied to a fence on the 1400 block of D St. SE earlier this week, is now currently with Rural Dog Rescue, an organization that matches pets with their forever homes.
And here’s a twist: “Mr. Puppy” isn’t actually the dog’s name, according to Angela Neis, Rural Dog’s foster coordinator. It’s Stacks.
“I may get overlooked at the shelter because I look a little bit like a pit bull mix, due to the unfortunate reputation this breed receives but I am a very friendly boy and get along well with other dogs,” an adoption listing for Stacks reads.
Though Stacks still needs to be neutered and receive some vaccinations, Neis said he’ll be up for adoption in the first part of May. Those interested in adopting Stacks must contact Rural Dogs Rescue to fill out an application.
