Meet Ares! Back in Sept of 2020, we were contacted by our shelter partner in Alabama, Clarke County Animal Shelter, about a horrible case that had come in. Ares was most likely used as a bait dog. His teeth were all filed down on the front, he had old and new wounds all over his face and neck. He was in rough shape. Then we found out that he was heartworm positive!! Even with all of the painful wounds, Ares was the sweetest boy! He just loves to be around people. And he didn’t mind the dogs next to him in the kennel. We didn’t even have to think twice, he was one of us now! We posted fundraisers online and raised the money to pay for his heartworm treatments, vaccines and neuter. And finally on Valentine’s Day, Ares made his way to us in Buffalo. He’s now an official Pit Crew member.

His foster family is just in love with him.

Hi my name is Ares. My foster mom says I’m the sweetest dog she ever met. I get along with my foster siblings who all range from 5 years old to 20 years old. I also have two foster cats who I also get along with very well. I am crate trained and potty trained. I love snacks A LOT, snow, toys, and lots of back scratches. Eating is the best part of my day BOL.  I really enjoy food. I am very shy at first when meeting new people, but quickly warm up and am well behaved. I enjoy human company all the time. I love playing with everyone in my foster home. I seek lots of attention so please be prepared to love me as much I will love you. I always try to make my foster family happy as they make me happy too. I know how to sit and do pretty good walking on a leash. Did you get a look at my ears!! I know right! I’m a handsome boy. But, Please don’t be afraid of my scars. They just tell my story about how strong I have been. That’s why I’m named Ares after all. I am ready for my for my forever family. I cannot wait to love you as much you will love me! I hope to meet you soon!!
