    'Abe' Looking for Loving Home

    Matt Bond has already invested thousands of dollars into treatments for the boxer mix and is willing to pay more if Abe can find a loving family. Clear the Shelters is hoping to find other animals just like Abe find a loving home. (Published Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015)

    A New Jersey dog is looking for a home after beating the odds – more than once.

    Abe, a 1-year-old Boxer mix, was suffering from a severe case of Canine parvovirus (Parvo) when he was almost euthanized almost a year ago. Then veterinarians had to amputate one of his legs after discovering a bad break that was never treated properly.

    “(Abe) came in he had Porvo… and he ended up losing one of his leg,” said trainer Edward Przybylski.

    A vet took a liking to Abe and took him home but couldn’t care for the dog because it showed aggression. That’s when Abe wound up at Przybylski’s Working Dogs K9 Academy in Central Jersey.

    Training, and the support of the Adopt a Boxer Rescue group, has made Abe into a loving dog that is ready to join a new home. You can find out more about Abe's journey on the group's website.

    “He would be a great pet for somebody, said Przybylski.

    Adopt a Boxer Rescue is accepting applications for now from people looking to give Abe or other dogs a loving home.
