Midnight was turned in at a PA shelter April 2008 after being chained to a tree for most of his life. He was an intact and very territorial fellow when he was accepted by the BSDRT Adoption Program, and had a severe case of Lyme’s Disease. In just a few months, his foster had him on the mend and eating well. The Lyme’s Disease had weakened his muscles but as he regained his strength he learned how to play with other dogs for the first time in his life. He was easily house-trained and soon preferred sleeping at the side of his foster’s bed. After nursing Midnight along for six months his foster adopted him, ensuring that he gets all the attention and affection he’d been without for the previous 11 years.
