CHIPPER AND BAILEE
From NASRN: Kibar is 2 years old and was pulled from a CA shelter - he had been abandoned and tied up in a parking lot. He needs to be neutered and he has a dead tooth that needs to be removed. He also has a mass on his leg that needs to be removed (mostly benign, the vet says). He also needs a hip x-ray to learn if hips are causing his what appears to be abnormality in his rear.
From NASRN: Max is from Texas. His ownerís turned him into a
shelter because he was too expensive to feed.
Need: He lost 23 pounds in a month's time after his neuter and foster dad noticed he had a lump on his stomach and he didnít want to eat. So he went to the vet last weekend and had to stay overnight. They still are not exactly sure what happened but when they did the barium test, it was showing he had a partial blockage. So he spent the night at the hospital and by the following afternoon, the swelling had gone down and almost all of the barium had passed.
Max was diagnosed with Addison's and was hospitalized for pneumonia. Sadly, Max passed away from his illness at only 19 months old.
From NASRN: Whisky arrived at his foster home with gaping hole and had to have surgery today to repair a sloppy/botched neuter that was done at the shelter.
From NASRN: 5 years old male was adopted from shelter as puppy.
Returned to shelter for killing a chicken.
Needs surgery to repair ACL.
From NASRN: Beau was taken from a shelter in CA. Nothing more is known about him.
From NASRN: She came into a Topeka KS shelter in December
and a local rescue group pulled her and
took her to a vet. They asked us if we would take her and we said yes.We didnt have a foster so the vet said they would board her. According to the vet in KS, they said she had meningitis and had her on high dosage of prednisone. She was so weak she could not take more than a few steps at a time and she was also "circling".Unbelievably, the vet SPAYED her without our authorization even tho she was this weak and sick. The sugery almost killed her. She had to be carried on a blanket when we transported her, she was so weak she could not walk. How on Earth could that vet spay her like that? We were finally able to get her into a foster home and we took her to foster mom's vet. The vet gave her a body scale of just "1" on a scale of 1-9 with 9 being the best. She does NOT have meningitis and has been weaned off the prednisone.Her liver enzymes are elevated and they think she might have hepatitis. She also has extremely bad case of ear mites in one ear and high amount of fluid in the other ear, with that ear drum being ruptured. We believe these two factors may be the cause of her circling. Since she's been on antibiotics her circling is diminished and she actually tried to play the other day. Foster mom was wiping her feet off and she grabbed the towel and shook it! So there is hope. She is in good hands now and is making a little more progress all the time.
From NASRN: Owner wanted to shoot her because she cost too much
money. She requires thyroid medicine and
Proin. She has a lump that needs to be biopsied before she can be placed for adoption. She also needs her
From NASRN: 2-3 year old neutered male picked up as a stray in Kansas.
From NASRN: She is 2 yr old female seized by law enforcement from
owners for neglect last summer. Her collar was embedded into her neck and had to
be surgically removed when they first seized her. Her foster mom woke up one
morning and Ana's front leg was really swollen and took her to the vet. He did
x-ray and put her on antibiotics. Still not sure what happened, there was no
break or fracture, she went on pain meds and antibiotics and was back to normal
in a day or two and has been fine ever since.
From NASRN: Hoku is a female approximately 1 year old. She was a stray picked up by animal control in the San Francisco area, California . Considered unadoptable because she guards her food. She is already spayed. She has anaplasmosis and is undergoing treatment for it.
ASDRL received an email from a woman who takes photos at the Putman County Animal Shelter in Palatka, FL, stating Ďthat what looks for all the world to be an Anatolian Shepherd was at the high-kill shelter, and would likely be euthanized next week. She has a bad skin condition.í The woman transported Lizzie for ASDRL to the Crill and Palm Veterinary Hospital in Palatka. Lizzie was diagnosed with mange and would also need to be spayed after her skin condition cleared up. She would be at the clinic for about a month. Treatment for her mange started immediately. A family was approved to adopt Lizzie as soon as she was released from the clinic. ASDRL tried numerous transport routes but we had no luck filling the legs that would meet the adoptive family half way. A Crill and Palm vet clinic employee stepped up and was willing to volunteer her time but could not afford the gas money. We paid her $100.00 to cover fuel.
From NASRN. 2 year old male in Missouri was
turned into shelter by owner. Owner got him last year from his previous owner,
wanting a dog to guard livestock. Since he had never been raised with livestock
he didnít have a clue and wanted to live with the family. Apparently, they
decided not to buy food for him. The preliminary vet exam found him to be
emaciated. Vet ranked him 1 (out of 9) for body condition. Vet wants him to
gain weight before doing anything else for him. He will have to go back to get
blood drawn and more tests in a couple weeks.
From NASRN: DJ and Gina are 4-6 years old. They were turned into
a Texas pound by their owner because he was moving. He hadnít had them for all
that long. They have apparently been passed around a lot. They need heartworm
test, shots and spaying/neutering, as well as a checkup.
From NASRN: Ivy was pulled from kill shelter in Alabama, now in
foster in Ohio. She is reported to be friendly with people and other dogs.
Appears to be housebroken and well behaved. She became sick after being pulled
and lots of tests had to be run
to determine what treatment she needed.
To NASRN: Heidi was 'dropped' in the
overnight box at a dog shelter. She is a case of extreme neglect. At some point
she had an ear infection that was not addressed. She is now deaf and in extreme
pain because of this. They have to do a bilateral ear ablation (removing the
pieces of the ear as I understand it) to relieve the pain. They will also spay
her. They are having to do a CAT scan before the ear surgery. You can not see
an ear canal any more.
To NASRN: Maria is one of the NC litter pups. Her owners abandoned her pregnant Mom with relatives and went out of state. Relatives eventually called rescue to find a home for all the pups.
To NASRN: Emma was picked up as a stray in Merced, CA.
From NASRN: From CA. Lucy was turned over to NASRN
when her owner was diagnosed with cancer and his wife was not able to care for
Lucy or their other animals. They sold all of the other animals and Lucy was
left at the ranch on her own for quite awhile. She was very skinny when we got
her and her collar had started to become embedded into her neck. She's doing
well in her new home and seems to be happier since her entropion surgery.
RAMZI AND MINKA
From NASRN: Ramzi is a young male Anatolian Shepherd that somehow
ended up in a kill shelter, along with his sister, Minka. They were picked up as
strays and not reclaimed. They are about 7-9 months old. Both are good with
other dogs and people friendly. We will assist w/transport within 1,000 miles.
From NASRN: This dog was pulled from a shelter in OH.
From NASRN: Duke was pulled from a Houston area shelter a month
or so ago and had a really bad URI. He's finally feeling
better so was able to be neutered.
From NASRN: Zeke was dumped at the shelter because the
owner "had too many dogs".
From NASRN: She was dumped in a shelter overnight pen, so we
don't know where she came from or what her history is.
From NASRN: Bruce came to us when his owner was deployed to the middle east. He is in foster care in Fresno, CA.
From NASRN: Scoobie came to us when his owners moved and could not find a house to rent that would allow a large dog. Scoobie is now in foster care in Fresno, CA.
From NASRN: Hank recently came out of an Indiana shelter and is presently in foster care.
From NASRN: Kaya and her brother were pulled from a shelter in CA. Unfortunately, her brother passed away the first night. We believe he had pneumonia. Kaya has mild to moderate pneumonia, also. She is traveling to her foster home in AZ today and will go the vet for testing so we can find out exactly what type of pneumonia we're dealing with. She's on meds that the shelter gave us but she will need more soon
From NASRN: Sam was listed as an owner rehome on our website last winter. After a couple of months, his owner notified us that she had rehomed him locally and we took him off the website. A short time later she contacted us again to say that home was not working out and could we please take him into foster care. So his owners relinquished him to us and Sam has been in our foster care for the last couple of months.
From NASRN: Sammy, he was pulled from a Louisiana shelter and was skin and bones, as you can see in his picture. He was a stray so we have no background on him but he's a sweet boy. He is now in foster care in Houston and we're trying to get him fattened up.
From Karen Massa: Hurley was a stray and is in a kill shelter in TX. He is 2 yrs old or less and is very sweet, but other dog aggressive. We are getting him to a foster home.
From Karen Massa: Emmett's story is his owner contacted me for help saying he may need to rehome him for chasing his sheep. I gave him as much advice as I could round up and he then decided it was too much work, as he was expecting lambs to drop and needed Emmett gone. I had a preapproved home in Colorado and we arranged for Emmett to be flown to Colorado within a week of the owner asking for help. He mailed the adopter and said the lambs came the day after Emmett left which was a relief for us all as he did not know how Emmett would react to the babies. Emmett is now in a pet home in Denver.
From NASRN: Bo was an owner surrender. He was purchased by a woman as protection for her father against a drug dealing brother, but proved to be too much dog to handle and was being teased from the alley behind their house. He needed all of his shots, rabies, heartworm testing and meds and neutering when he was picked up.
ALEX AND MCGRADY
From NASRN: Alex and McGrady's mother and father were seized in an abuse case when the female was already pregnant. The shelter allowed her to have the puppies because she was so far along. They took care of the pups until they were old enough for adoption. We took 3 of them and the shelter placed 2.
From NASRN: Sam's owner turned him into the shelter for supposedly killing a chicken. He lived in a pen with about 100 chickens, but the owner claims he killed "one" so off to the kill shelter he went. We also rehomed his sister about a month before. She said they were from a litter that she bred herself. Sam's rather withdrawn right now, he's been through a lot over the last few months, as we had to pay to board him for about a month because we didn't have any foster homes for him. So, between his stint at the shelter and then at the boarding kennel, he seems a little withdrawn. Tom, ata his foster home, thinks he is slowly starting to come out of his shell, but its going to take some time.
MAX AND RUBY
From NASRN: Max and Ruby, a male/female pair of ASDs was pulled from the Phoenix shelter . Max is pretty sick, he has bronchitis and is being treated for erlichia. We are still waiting for the rest of his blood work to come back. Ruby seems to have picked up the bronchitis also, but isnt as bad as poor Max. He seems to be responding to meds but he's only been on them for a couple of days.
From NASRN: Bridgett is a female we pulled from a kill shelter in TX. She is being treated for tick fever and seems to be responding to the meds. We are all hopeful she will be feeling better soon.
From Karen Massa: Buddy was in a Port Isabel Tx shelter. They asked NASRN for help to save Buddy as he is such a laid back, mellow sweet boy. Buddy suffers from entropian in both his eyes,is heartworm positive and has a bad limp in his real leg. He was covered with fleas and had terrible fly bites on his ears, all the time remaining an sweet lovable guy. He is currently in Corpus Christi, Tx in a foster home and was treated April 14 for the heartworm, which the vet said was a very bad case.
From Karen Massa: Charlie was picked up
as a stray, went to county shelter and thats how we got him. He's young -about a
year to 18 mo's old. Foster says he is soooooooo sweet. He hops around on three
legs trying to play.He had a problem with his rear leg and we are going forward
with his surgery. The foster home is committed to recovery for him.
From the foster home about Charlies hip: The specialists are Dr. Vasser, who was the head of surgery at UC Davis but now has his own practice, and Dr. Richardson who practices at Sacramento Surgical Hospital for pets. Charlie's right hip has been out of place for a couple of months. The right femur is fusing to the pelvis. The pelvis has been fractured on both the left and right side, but are now mostly healed, so it is good for surgery. Both doctors were worried about the right leg's ability to become a functional leg again. The muscle is atrophied and he can't use it much. Dr. Vasser originally thought that the prognosis of the leg usage was quite poor, and would become worse over time. He recommended amputation, but then got Dr. Richardson's opinion. Dr. Richardson felt that it would be worth a try to get the hip back in place, if possible. But if when the operation occurred and they could see the extent of the actual damage, it it was too extensive then amputate. If it wasn't too extensive, then put the hip back in place with pins. The estimated cost would be about $3,000.
FIONA, now SELMA
From Karen Massa: Selma was sold to an apt dweller as a pup. As she grew, the owner realized an ASD was not an apartment dog. She "sold" the dog to a goat rancher, who it appears, may have shot the dog. Karen Massa took possession of the dog with the help of the original owner. Selma is now in foster care recuperating from her wounds.
