A very special Williamston, NC, dog is hoping to find a new home. After getting injured in Pitt County during a hurricane, Ajax had to have his leg amputated. However, he got lucky when Freda Hamilton of Martin County adopted him.
Just over a month ago, 80-year-old Freda went missing and was later found dead of natural causes, leaving Ajax without his human and his home.
Ajax is currently being cared for by the Williamston Veterinary Hospital while they help search for the perfect home for him. Ajax may be best suited for an older couple or a woman.
Anyone interested in adopting Ajax can contact the Williamston Veterinary Hospital at (252)792-3000 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update November 7, 2012
Hurricane Sandy this past week highlights how important it is to check with local shelters and rescue organizations to see if there are ways to help dogs in need. After Ajax lost his leg during a hurricane in North Carolina, he was adopted by a loving elderly woman. When she passed away, he went up for adoption again. Happily Sharon Ambrose posted a wonderful update as to what happened to Ajax.
She commented, "My elderly, widowed mom took Ajax and he is getting proper spoiling. We absolutely love him, and I don't worry as much because mom has company. Not much of a watch dog. He waaay prefers laps and covers than getting all upset about nothing! :o). Thought you'd like to know!"
