Burl Ives is in foster and looking for his new home. Burl has had one of his front legs amputated, but he's really ready to go to a new home now. Please contact us for a meet and greet. Burl will need a home with no cats.

I was found as a stray dog with a severe foot injury. I had to have one toe amputated, and later I had to have a second toe amputated. Since I'm a Chewaholic, I chew everything, including my foot. Even with my e-collar on I managed to chew the surgery site and undo some of my doctor's hard work.
My foot has had to have several surgeries to save it, and I almost had to have my whole leg amputated due to complications of my injuries. But my vet staff and shelter workers adore me. They didn't want me to lose my whole leg just because some humans let me down in the past.
But I have a toy box, all the chew toys a boy could want, a warm bed, good food, and an adoring fan club! They take me for walks and car rides, they teach me things, and my foot is feeling much better. They think soon I'll be able to be adopted! So please help me find my furever family! Follow my recovery and quest for a new home!
