Gus's Story...
URGENT DATE IS WED 9/24
Gus aka#150
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl4MonWNQC0
Male shepherd mix
Approx 12-14 years old
Approx 60 lbs
We are looking for a very special person who would consider opening their home and heart to this senior angel.
He is in bad shape - multiple tumors, arthritis, skin problems. He is deaf.
It is apparent that this old man has had a very hard life of severe neglect.
Even though he appears to be quite content and comfortable at the shelter, he LOVES his Kuranda bed and blankets, we do not want the shelter to be his last memory.
Please share this sweet boy, there could be someone out there willing to take him in and give him a warm bed to rest his head on and show him the love and care he has not gotten for quite some time.
He deserves his final days/weeks/months to be filled with love, every dog deserves that.
He did perk up a little bit when he met a dog! He did very well but for obvious reasons would do best with dogs that are not high energy and will not jump on him.
LEGAL DAY OF ADOPTION IS 9/24
IF INTERESTED IN ADOPTING PLEASE EMAIL CTSHELTERDOGS@GMAIL.COM
PLEASE TAKE ADOPTION SERIOUSLY, DOGS CANNOT BE RETURNED TO THE SHELTER. THANK YOU.

Act quickly to adopt Gus. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gus, a Bloomfield Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Bloomfield, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Bloomfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bloomfield already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bloomfield breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bloomfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
