Meet Kenny Chestnut. He's a 3 year-old Pit Bull mix. Maybe you've noticed there's a bit of a stigma against Pit Bulls, especially here in Springfield, MO. Kenny has experienced that first hand. He was sprayed in the eyes with pepper spray and thrown out of a car. He was hurt and scared. People tried to help Kenny but they thought he was mean. How would you feel in that situation? Luckily, Rescue One stepped in. They saw through his fear. It took awhile but they were able to gain his trust and get him to the vet where his eyes and road rash could be treated.
Now we know the sweet, gentle boy that Kenny really is. Kenny is good with dogs, cats, kids, horses, and even chickens! He's house trained and walks well on a leash. However, Kenny is a special needs dog. He has seizures which are now under control and prevented with medication.
If Kenny sounds like the perfect fit for your family, head on over to Rescue One right now. Or consider helping Rescue One raise the money to build kennels for emergency rescues. This would allow them to take in dogs in need, ones like Kenny, even when all their foster homes are full.
