The high stress environment was wearing on him and he ended up nipping a couple people, because of this he was marked unadoptable and was set to be euthanized unless a rescue stepped up to save him. The volunteers at the shelter knew what a good boy Johnny could be and believed he deserved a second chance. They been spreading the word to try and save his life. With no time to spare, only days away from his euthanasia date, one of our volunteers saw their plead for help and committed to foster Johnny. Instead of dying he got his freedom ride to East Coast Bulldog Rescue.
