Patience is a virtue; just ask Melvin, an almost four-year-old dog who waited 667 days until he was adopted. Melvin is a pit bull, and the stigma associated with the breed makes it harder to find adoptive families, but this boy stood by his lovely disposition at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) until his new family found him.

In January, Melvin was transferred from the care of the Long Island Animal Care and sent to the Los Angeles rescue because of their partnership.

Melvin spent the last four months in foster care and received medical care. Recently he required a TPLO surgery   (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) for a cranial cruciate tear. Performed by one of spcaLA’s veterinary hospital partners, the $2,500 procedure was made possible by donations from spcaLA supporters.
Melvin never needed behavioral modification; he was just a very active and an intelligent dog who needed additional enrichment. Melvin’s new family has years of large breed experience and room in their hearts for another dog after the death of one of theirs. Melvin now has two pit bull siblings to call family.
Live a long, happy life Melvin.
