Critter Chronicles: Stitch


When Stitch arrived at the shelter he was very frightened and growled in his cage. A patient volunteer sat in his cage for over an hour trying to get him to come out. Once out of his cage we found out what a nice boy he really is. Stitch knows basic commands and is a real lover boy. Stitch was surrendered to the shelter because his owner was too ill to care for him. No wonder he was so frightened. He went from a loving home to a cage. Stitch likes other dogs and he’s OK with cats. He’s a good car rider too. Lynn, the volunteer ended up taking Stitch home to foster him since he hated his cage. She says he’s an absolutely wonderful dog and would make a great family pet. Lynn said Stitch must have gotten his name because he always keeps her in stitches with all his antics. If you are interested in Stitch and have kids over 7 years of age and/or another dog in your family, please call the shelter to set up a visit and a meet and greet.
