Darth has had no response at the shelter for adoption or from any rescues.  We are full to capacity in our adoption building and need to move other dogs to adoptions to give them a chance to be seen.  We will hold Darth A1396119 overnight.  Must have a hold by 10am Wednesday 07-20-16.

Per Foster: I will need to bring Darth (A1396119), back on Tuesday.  He is looking good and his hair is growing back.  He is good with other dogs and is friendly with people, but he goes over my fence, looking for my cats.
