A dog who was found in an abandoned house has become an online star because rescuers can’t separate him from his best friend – a METAL BUCKET.Slim, as he’s been named, was discovered last December, and has been living at the Ashland County Dog Shelter in Ohio since. The four-year-old pitbull mix was emaciated and scared when he was discovered , but has spent the year opening up to shelter staff.
Rescue Me Ohio explained on their Facebook page : “[Slim] has a lot of energy and charm. He had some food guarding issues that the shelter staff and volunteers have worked with and he has come a long way. He loves attention and loves to play. He is a very strong boy too who does not have the best of leash manners. He is anxious in the shelter and has destroyed most of the toys he’s been given. But his favorite toy is his bucket!
“He loves his bucket and is lost without it! He sits like a perfect gentleman for a treat and takes them so nicely.” Slim is still up for adoption, and the shelter says that he’ll make a great pet for those willing to continue working on his manners.
