Kano the dog is ready to be adopted
A dog saved during an animal cruelty case is ready for adoption.
According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Kano, a black pitbull, is doing much better after suffering lacerations on his face. He has scars but is ready to go to his forever home.
“He loves belly rubs, long walks, and quality playtime,” the sheriff’s office said.
Kano can be adopted at the Lee County Domestic Animal Services.
Kano is a 7-year-old pit mix, according to domestic animal services.
“Kano still bears the scars of his trauma on the outside and we are sure some on the inside. But, he is still able to somehow trust humans and have the ability to love,” Lee County Domestic Animal Services posted on Facebook. “We are looking for someone that will give him the home that he deserves. Someone who is deserving of his love and trust and will not let him down a second time.”
Kano’s previous owner, 20-year-old Ivan Garcia, was arrested after a witness heard Kano yelping and Garcia yelling at the dog.
Kano was found with lacerations and scars on his face while Garcia was found with blood and dog hair on him. Deputies found evidence that Garcia had severely beaten the animal, the sheriff’s office said.
