Adella and Jetson – Foster or Perm Home Needed – URGENT!

Adella

HAPPY UPDATE!!

ADELLA AND JETSON – SIBLINGS SAVED AND REUNITED!!

Adella and Jetson are pit mix siblings that were dumped in the mountains in the snow and left to fend for themselves or die! Emaciated and starving, this sister and brother ended up in a high kill Socal shelter on Death Row, separated in different kennels and with little hope of making it out alive.

Dog Shack was contacted about this tragic situation and was able to step up and get Adella out first and then Jetson. They have now BOTH been SAVED and REUNITED! They are currently in temporary boarding in Socal, waiting for transport up to Dog Shack in Norcal.

Here is a video showing the happy siblings being reunited at the boarding kennel play yard. Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch…

Also we have received a few Freedom photos taken by their transporter and we will have more photos to follow, once they arrive at Dog Shack (SEE Comments for more Freedom photos).

These dogs will need medical attention and some time with the rescue to recover from their horrible ordeal, before they will be ready to go to  fosters/adopters. Any donations towards the costs to care for this sibling pair would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be PayPal’d to Dog Shack’s PP acct at: pets.katrina@gmail.com OR by using the “Donate” button on the Dog Shack website Home page: www.dogshack.org

Meet Darling Delilah! – Needs Full Time Foster/Adopter Experienced with Canine Epilepsy/Seizure Meds

Delilah_black lab mix_adopter pic_lying on couch 2_12-7-14Delilah_black lab mix_adopter pic_front view sitting_9-10-14Delilah_female black Lab mix_adopter pic_lying on couch_12-7-14Delilah_black lab mix_adopter pic_lying on floor_12-7-14

 

Delilah is a 2.5 year old delightful female black Lab mix.  She’s a very pretty girl and fairly big, weighing just under 80 lbs.  ”Delilah” is a happy, affectionate dog, the best companion, excellent with toddlers and adults alike, and a protector of her home.  She knows the typical doggie commands, is great in the car, only barks to scare away possible intruders (and her bark would scare them!), and loves going for a walk. She’s low-energy, just requiring some regular exercise like short walks, and she is also great at the office.

 

Delilah was recently diagnosed with epilepsy with grand mal seizures, which seem to mostly correlate with being left alone or high-stress events.  She has not yet been started on seizure medication, but hopefully once she is stabilized on meds, her seizures will be a more infrequent occurrence. Ideally she should be with a foster or adopter that has experience dealing with a dog with epilepsy and giving the required medications, and also who can basically be with her most of the time.

 

She would do great as an  ”emotional-support animal” for someone that will have her with them everywhere they go.  She does need you to be fairly strong – she can pull hard, although she’s doing much better and pretty good about not pulling these days.

 

Delilah seems to have a strong desire to chase cats, so she should be in a home with No cats. She still needs some help becoming more socialized with other dogs. She did previously live in a temporary foster home with a small dog and they were pals.

 

If you’re looking for a truly devoted companion or even an emotional-support animal to have by your side day and night, Delilah will make you very happy.  She’s so full of love and is such a good girl – she will be an amazing friend for life!

 

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Delilah and think you can offer her the kind of home she needs, please contact us ASAP by emailing: pets.katrina@gmail.com

*** Note: Please include some background information regarding the type of home you could offer Delilah, any previous experience with canine epilepsy/seizure medications, and your location and best contact tel. number. We are an all-volunteer rescue but will follow up with you as quickly as possible.

 

Thank you for considering to provide a loving home for this very special girl!
