Meet Jethro! Dog That Was Shot at Close Range is Looking for his Forever Home

OZAUKEE - Jethro is one of the many wonderful animals up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Jethro has not been able to find his forever home and is now considered a Benchwarmer at the humane society. The Humane Society has reduced Jethro's adoption fee to just $25 in hopes to find him a family.

Jethro was featured in the Humane Society's 2016 Hope's Lights Campaign. 

According to the Wisconsin Humane Society, the 3-year-old pup had been found alone in the woods with a shattered jaw. Vets later discovered that he had been shot at close range and needed emergency surgery to repair the many fractures. He recovered in the care of a foster home and eventually was adopted by a family who loved him very much. Unfortunately, as Jethro began to heal, some behavioral challenges arose that made it clear he couldn't live a happy and fulfilling life in that particular environment, so he came back to WHS to find a home more suited to his needs.

Jethro would be much happier in a rural home without many other dogs in the area, and no other dogs in the home. A yard with a tall fence would be a huge plus for this guy, too! He did just fine with cats in foster care and he's great with people, including children.
