A dog that was found abandoned and beaten in the head at a Roseville Park has been placed for adoption.
The dog, named Korbin, was found June 22 at Mark White Park in Roseville with a large gash in his head, no collar and no microchip.
The dog was taken to the Atlantic Street Pet Emergency Center to be treated, and is ready to find a home after more than two months of treatment.
The Placer SPCA requested donations to help with Korbin’s care. The hundreds of donations allowed close monitoring and successful treatment of the dog’s severe wound.
He is a mixed-breed, 25-pound brown dog. The wound on his head is still visible but is just a scar.
Korbin is up for adoption at the Placer SPCA. Adoption applications are open until Sept. 7 and can be found on the Placer SPCA’s website.
The small dog responded well to visitors and humans while living with his foster family. He has not proven to be destructive, and is potty trained. He is on low-dosage anxiety medication, which is inexpensive and available by prescription from a veterinarian, because he is still recovering from the trauma he faced, according to the Placer SPCA.
The Placer SPCA has stated that Korbin would do best in an adult-only house with no other animals. He is very loving, but will need extra attention after everything he has been through.
“Korbin needs more time to heal emotionally, some training and a lot of love,” said Leilani Fratis of the Placer SPCA. “If you think you’re the right household for Korbin, and you want to make an investment in a dog that so needs a caring, permanent home, I encourage you to complete an application. He will be a devoted, loving companion.”
A $5,000 reward is still out for anyone who has information regarding what happened to the small mixed-breed pup.
