One special dog is facing a rare problem for shelter pets these days: Too many people want to adopt him.
Dozer, a 3-month-old Boxer puppy, is recovering at an animal hospital in Clayton County, Ga., after someone threw him from a moving car last week. The asphalt removed the pads from his front paws and skinned his back legs to the bone — bringing him within minutes of euthanasia, FOX 5 Atlanta reports.
But this resilient little pup is on the mend and will soon be ready for adoption. Thousands of people from across the country have volunteered to adopt Dozer or help pay for his veterinary bills.
"We will be very strict about who adopts him," Maria Dorough, who saved Dozer from being euthanized, told FOX 5. "They will have to have previous experience, fenced-in yard, he will have to be kept inside. There will just be a lot of screening that we will do."
Check out this sweet video of little Dozer. How could you not want to adopt such an inspiring dog?
