Mason Buckles Up for Sweetest Ride of His Life


Written by Dogs Deserve Better Rep. Melody Whitworth

This boy was abandoned at a house with two other dogs. His owner moved to a town that had a breed restriction so he just left the dogs behind. He was only able to visit them once or twice a week and was having a hard time affording food.

This boy’s name was Manson, but after being relinquished to Dogs Deserve Better his name was quickly changed to Mason. He was emaciated when we found him. Every rib and bone on his back showed. He was very sick with stomach issues and worms, including heartworms. Yet after several months in foster care and complete vetting, including very expensive and time consuming heartworm treatment, Mason is a completely different dog!

Today Mason is very loving, sweet and well behaved. He loves car rides, is very social, and will always let you know if there is a stranger at the door. Mason is eagerly awaiting his forever home and would make an incredible companion. (The two other dogs from this property were also rescued).

To find out more about adopting Mason, you may fill out the online adoption form. There’s also a state by state listing of all Dogs Deserve Better’s adoptable dogs who were rescued from neglect and are waiting for their ride of a lifetime.

Dogs Deserve Better is turning around the lives of chained dogs like Mason. There is no excuse for a dog being chained outside in all sorts of weather. Let's demand a law against chaining a dog to a tree and when a dog is found chained to a tree it is immediately surrendered.
