Ishmael, the 2nd of the 33 rescued dogs to become ready for adoption, is learning to embrace kindness. Like his brother, Sweet Pete, who was adopted a few days ago, Ishmael is exceptionally gentle and humble.

The 33 were saved from deplorable squalor and their previous owner was convicted of animal cruelty. Original post about what they endured.

Ishmael is 4 years of age and neutered, a medium-size blend of many breeds (including Whippet, Beagle, Dalmatian, Bully, and more). We are not yet sure whether he is compatible with other dogs due to the horrors and dog fighting he witnessed.

Ishmael is emotionally improving so well. He needs to continue gaining weight though and physically improving with good nutrition and exercise.

Please visit Nevada SPCA and ask for Ishmael by name.

His siblings and cousins will be ready for adoption too in the weeks to come based on their emotional and physical healing and spay/neuter surgeries.

Thank you again to everyone supporting Nevada SPCA and making their rescue & rehabilitation possible.
