Thanks to Linda & Danielle for helping us find Howie a home. Now living with Dan and Duke, Howie has been renamed to Buster. A happy ending for the luckiest pitty in the world!
As Debra said, it was nothing short of a miracle at this time to find a home for a pit bull.
Thanks also to the 350 rescue groups cross-posting and putting him on Petfinder. Two weeks of hard work, but what a happy ending!
