Gage, Daisy and the Wailers...
Hey guys....things have been crazy since the shelter PTS a lot of puppies trying to control a parvo problem. My contact managed to pull 4 lab mix pups out and we now have them in insolation at my vet waiting it out to ensure they don't get Parvo. One of the males is already adopted...the person is just waiting out the holding period before he takes his pup (adotped at the shelter). We are working to get a 1 year old out before tomorrow that was also spared from the mass euthanization.
We have two other dogs that were turned into our vet that we are helping to place right now too. The first is Gage, whom I posted about in mid-August. His owner allowed him to get hit by a car and then brought him in a day later to be PTS because he didn't want to pay to have him treated. He surrendured the dog and he's been at my vets ever since. His leg was shattered and he's making progress. A wonderful donation was made by our very own AZLAB for Gage's care. THANK YOU SO MUCH KARON!
We think he has a little sheperd in him..but nevertheless, he's a sweet boy. 18 months old. You can kind of see in the first picture his left back leg...that is his bad leg...he still hasn't put full weight down on it yet.
The second dog is Daisy. She's 3. Her owners brought her in with her right back leg wrapped tightly in an ace bandage because he had cut herself on something. Well, it was so infected that they had to amputate the leg. Owners didn't want to pay the bill. The vet got them to surrender dog. Owners wanted dog back...vet handed the bill over they said nevermind. Daisy's leg was amputated and healed nicely. But guess what? She turned out to be heartworm positive. So...poor Daisy is finishing up her HW treatment. But I have to say, she is the sweetest dog. She gets around great on her three legs. She will be a wonderful companion.
Here are the Wailer puppies that are in isolation:
And finally, here is Lex. This is the boy we are trying to get out of the shelter before they decide to put him down.
