Abel is a beautiful shepherd mix of about 2 years old that would just love a great new home.  He came to us in July, 2018 from our Newark facility after he was found in such a sad state.  Abel was found roaming the streets with an old cast on his badly broken leg.  Sadly, the leg could not be saved and was amputated but he has adjusted and made a complete recovery.  Abel was adopted last year but was returned because he kept bugging the other dog in the home until they got into a fight.  Abel has lots of energy and always wants to play so while he needs a home with no cats or small dogs, a larger dog with a similar personality could work out.  He is a barrel of laughs, always wanting to hop around, run, play, and have a great time.  He's sweet and friendly, and loves everyone he meets.  He will bring lots of laughs and happiness to the good family that welcomes him home.  File#28388  1/15/19
