Poor Mason can't seem to catch a break. He has been found as a stray at least twice in his life, and twice taken to the overcrowded animal control facility in Philly. Thankfully he has found his way to GOT: we always find the very best adopters and Mason will never see the inside of a shelter ever again.

Mason was badly matted when he got to the shelter, but thankfully did well for grooming and is now a handsome yet adorably scruffy boy. Unfortunately his dental procedure did not go so well, as a heart arrhythmia prevented our vet from safely completing his cleaning. The worst of his teeth were removed though, and Mason is fully recovered and back on a mix of small kibble and canned foods. He has no symptoms or other issues related to his heart, and is overall a healthy and happy little guy.

 

We suspect that Mason is used to being an only child, as he is very needy and clingy and really struggled being left alone when he first came here. The pack has been great for him though, and he has made friends, learned to wrestle and play, and has become much more independent (although he's still always ready for a snuggle and is happy to go for walks or rides in the car.) Mason has done well with house training, loves meeting new people, is curious but safe around cats, and would likely do well with polite young children who don't mind being gently chewed on from time to time. Mason is a sweet and friendly little guy who will do best in a home where someone is home more often than not. Please consider giving him the second (or third!) chance he deserves!
