Kobe arrived at a shelter in Maryland recently — skinny, heartworm infested and very timid. It was apparent that the frightened dog, who was around 4 years old, hadn’t received much attention in his lifetime.
Ending up at the shelter was, perhaps, a blessing in disguise. It was ultimately the first step in the process of securing Kobe’s future — one filled with love and companionship.
Sean and Jade Stinchcomb have been fostering Kobe, adding him to their furry family of 2 pit bulls and 4 cats.
Kobe’s first treat when he left the shelter was an ice cream cone. Since then, tasty treats have been plentiful for him, as have hugs and kisses. His happy-go-lucky personality is emerging as he lets go of the sad memories of his past life and welcomes his new ones.
