Pet of the Week
Gunther was found wandering around a town in Barbour County with a large chain around his neck. He was so emaciated and weak that we had doubts that he would survive. With plenty of nutritious of food and lots of caring attention from our volunteers, he became stronger, and no longer stumbled and fell when he walked. The vet has given him a clean bill of health, except for his arthritis and possible limited hearing and vision. We estimate his age to be 14 or 15 years and he weighs 65 pounds.
Gunther loves to walk on a leash and he is very content just walking around the fenced yard at the shelter, ignoring the little dogs who frisk around him. He does have a favorite food---hot dogs! He loves to curl up on a thick quilt in his crate and nap after a few hours spent outside. We are hoping to find a home for Gunther that would offer him the love and comfort that he deserves in his sunset years. He would be a pleasant companion and an easy dog to care for. We are so hoping that someone will open their heart and home to this sweet old boy!
Poor Savannah came to the shelter after being rescued from a trap. She is a shy, and beautiful lady. Given time she will adjust to human friends, but as is typical with strays, she will need patience and love until she learns to trust people. She is a survivor, though, and now she needs a loving forever home. She's been spayed, is up-to-date with her vaccinations and is litter box trained so she's ready to go at a moments notice.
