as told by his family
Soldier is a 6 year old American Pit Bull who has lived with his family since his mother gave birth to him. Soldier began losing weight quickly, stopped eating and having bowel movements. Soldier's family loves him very much and provides a great home for him. They are a dual-income family, but one of adults lost her job and has had to try to get by on unemployment while looking for another job.
Our friends at Blue Pearl were kind enough to see Soldier on a Friday evening. By Wednesday afternoon they had diagnosed Soldier with severe Colitis and had him patched up and ready to go home! He needs to gain his weight back and he will be on medications for a while, but he should enjoy a full recovery!
