I forgot to say that we had also found his previous owner who tied him out. It was a good month after we adopted him from a nearby shelter that he came looking there. We've stayed in contact with the workers there and they told us the man was very upset because he had payed a lot of money for his dog (which fit our boys description and the area he was found in). According to that man he was one of the fila pups that had been mixed with a shepherd. Thanks to that very upset man, that is how the shelter found the woman overbreeding and abusing her beautiful female.
