Ace went in to see Dr Dhupa and unfortunately we found out not only does he have hip dysplasia in both hips, but also both his knees are bad ('ruptured anterior cruciate ligament') :[ At 9 years old and all four of the joints in his hind quarters in such horrible shape, there really isn't anything we can do except get the weight off him, give him pain meds, and whatever else we can think of to manage pain (acupuncture, etc) to keep him comfortable. Ace doesn't let a little thing like that hold him back though - he is a happy happy boy, LOVES the ball, and barking (happy barking, look at me barking, pay attention to me barking ;] ). He is a very social boy, likes to be near wherever you are, has been fine with the other dogs as long as they ignore his 'claiming' things - be it a toy, the water bucket, the person he is next to - he doesn't do it every time, and the group of dogs I have right now totally ignore his attitude about this and he no longer does it with them. I wouldn't trust him with cats - he likes to bark at mine and if the cat runs, he realllly wants to chase it - doesn't matter to him that he is falling down in a mad scramble to go after it - actually nothing seems to bother him over much, unless it is a lack of attention ;] He has lost about 10 pounds to so far - was 74 on intake at the shelter and weighed in at 63 at his vet visit, so he's on his way with the weight loss! If anyone is interested in adopting Ace, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org -- Here's a short video of Ace with a ball.
"BANDIT" is a Shepherdy mix neutered male, about 8 years old, that loves people! He is great with other dogs, all sizes, but a little too interested in cats to be trusted. He is a sweetheart that is looking for a loving home to call his own. He was rescued out of a high kill shelter after no one came for him or adopted him, the skin around his nose and eyes were a mess. We had him seen by the vet and was he was diagnosed with discoid lupus. He is currently on 2 different meds that run about $10 a month and has healed up beautifully, feels great and is still plenty active for his age. If you are interested in being this gem of a boy's forever home, please go to our Adoption Application and fill it out:
