plea for an adoptive home:
for help with two WDs that I'm fostering. I do dog rescue and
found these two in a deplorable shelter in central NE. We believe
them to be low to mid-content wolf/malamute/husky/shepherd (we
think). They are socialized to humans and larger dogs. They
supposedly were a year old in January. Both very sweet but the
male needs a firm hand.
The female has
been very ill with a condition akin to severe acid reflux.
She's been in two vet hospitals, the most recent was the Kansas
University teaching hospital. It's been touch and go for two months with
Prinny, but (and I hold my breath here) we think we may have found the
right medical protocol that will save her life and give her a chance at a
life with someone that will care for her and her special needs. Little
is healthy, weighing in at about 90 pounds, I believe. They have
been vaccinated and all that's been done for LM is to get rid of any
that he may have had. The first vet found that Prinny had a healthy batch
of them and treated her. She is also heartworm free and started on a
preventive. We plan on testing LM this Friday. Then we will move on to
having him neutered and vacc started as well.
Princess is here with me since she's been so ill. LM is boarded at a
small grooming/boarding kennel. I simply don't have room for him as I am
fostering a Saint and have four of my own. Little Man and Princess
are sweet, loving, poorly reared and displaced wolf dogs. They
deserve caring, forever homes with people who will love and
protect them for the rest of their lives. This is the end to which
I am committed.
