Of the 150 dogs in a Mercer County hoarding case, few survived. And of those few, Rebel was the most traumatized by the horrible experience. He was found nearly starved and ill, but Rebel persevered with the help of the Humane Society of Allen County. This unbelievably sweet 5-year-old Lab mix does well in quiet safe places but lives with a lot of fear that sometimes causes him to freeze on the spot. Rebel needs you to help teach him what kind petting feels like and what it means to have a loving home. With just one look in Rebel’s deep eyes, you can see the pain this brave dog’s endured and the deep gratitude he was for the slightest affection and care. Rebel is a candidate for the HSOAC foster program, in which participants care for a shelter dog in their own homes with Humane Society support until a permanent home is found.
