Allow Memphis to be Adopted by Jeff Coltenback

 

Memphis appears to be yet another victim of breedism. He is a Pit Bull, and for that reason, the mindset of those in authority seem to have been already been made up about this sweet boy. With no bite history, no history whatsoever of aggression of any kind, Memphis was evaluated on the orders of the Township of Bloomfield Health Department, which oversees the city shelter, and deemed to be unadoptable based upon the results. What makes this so incredibly sad, is that the things that Memphis reacted to in that evaluation are things that any dog would react to. In just one example, a stranger in a hooded sweatshirt stormed into the room and yelled at Memphis for no reason. Memphis reacted by barking and lunging. The question is, what dog would not react in such a manner under similar circumstances?

If the welfare of Memphis is truly the ultimate goal, there is absolutely no reason Memphis should remain in the shelter one more day. A loving, experienced, breed savvy family is pleading with the township to bring Memphis back home forever.

We the petition signers want to see Memphis returned to this loving family asap.

It’s official!!! The Bloomfield Board of Health passed a resolution tonight and our agreement with them has been finalized regarding Memphis. I’d like to personally thank all of you out there who have supported us throughout this. And, I’d like to especially thank the entire Board of Health & Health Department for their initiative in proposing this resolution to us. They were extremely professional and courteous this evening and their willingness to give this situation a happy ending was apparent. The agreement that was reached tonight was in the best interest of everyone involved. I won’t get into the specifics of our agreement. But, as we posted a couple of weeks ago, once Memphis is deemed adoptable, he will come home to us. We will be kept informed of his progress throughout the remainder of his rehabilitation. It’s been a long road. But, now, everyone involved can put this behind and move forward. It is important that his rehabilitation goes smoothly and unhindered by anyone or anything. So, we will not be posting any updates going forward until he is set to come home to us. Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
