- Adoption status
I mean…..doesn’t his name say it all? hahahahaha.
But all joking aside, Wild Turkey was yet another stray pup in New Orleans, when a good Samaritan found him. His cute little “fly away” ears made him quite the “looker” and he was as funny in personality as his silly facial expressions.
In the late Spring of 2018, our worst nightmare came true. With having a TV show, we always worry about people wanting our dogs for the wrong reasons, for example, a “trophy” or for “bragging rights”. And believe it or not, our dogs become celebrities themselves and people have been known to obsess over them. So it was late April of 2018 when a Pit Bull rescue group that we had been helping, DOGNAPPED Turkey and four of our other dogs. It took us months of searching the country but thanks to a dedicated police department and the dog rescue community who kept their eyes open, all of our dogs were finally rounded up and returned to us.
But this all came with a price not only for the dogs but for VRC as well. It ended up costing us $125,000 in legal fees but we were finally able to get the DOGNAPPERS arrested and charged and they are currently awaiting trial. And yes, all of the dogs suffered emotionally and some physically but like the true Pit Bulls that they are….they are all so resilient!
But Turkey and his friends are now finally able to get a home of their own!
So we know how cute this little fella is but true to his name he is a wild child! All in good fun of course but he could use an active home who likes to do lots of fun stuff. He is hit n’ miss with other dogs but his energy level is so much that at this time, we prefer he goes to a home as the only dog.
Wild Turkey is also in line to go into one of our prison dog training programs so hopefully getting an “edumakation” will “slow his roll”….hahahaha.
