Butch is different than many dogs who arrive at the shelter. He obviously has family who loves him. He was brought into the shelter after being found on East Killarney Lake Drive, which is listed in the Moore area of Spartanburg County.
It was soon noticed that Butch had a reward notice posted on Craigslist. Several concerned dog lovers have attempted to contact the family, but no one has received a reply. It’s possible the email address on Craigslist is wrong. Something MUST be wrong, because this dog is obviously someone’s beloved pet. The ad on Craigslist reads
“White American Bulldog lost Sept. 20, 2014, 60-70 lb. male, white with brown spot on right eye and a few brown spots on body & brown speckles in ears, no collar, last seen on Anderson Mill Rd. Please contact me at any time if you’ve seen him-reward offered!”
Greenville Lost and Found Pets also has him listed on their Facebook page, where no response has been received as well.
There are two things that can happen here, should no one come forward soon to claim this beautiful dog. His stray hold is up, meaning he can be adopted out at any time. Should that happen, the adopters will obtain legal custody, and the family would be unable to get him back, should a new family not be willing to return him.
Or Butch could die at the shelter, one of many dogs who are euthanized due to lack of space.
Please don’t allow this to happen. Spread this article around to anyone and everyone you know in the Spartanburg area. Contact vets as well, with the hope someone recognizes this poor lost soul. Look at that face-it’s clear he desperately misses his family. Social media sharing has reunited many lost pets with their owners. Please don’t let this sweet boy down. He needs to go home!
If this is your dog, the shelter can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org, but it would be in his best interest for his owner to just go to the shelter immediately. Time is running out for this dog.
An update will be posted, should he be returned or adopted out.
