7-20-15 Nickolai comes into rescue from a Detroit Shelter, where he was âÂÂurgentâÂÂ because he was not able to be moved to the âÂÂadoption buildingâÂÂ. (Yet, within a couple of hours of Susan meeting him, on Sunday, he was whisked away to the adoptable building.) While I have not received his owner surrender paperwork, the rumor going around was that he was on CraigâÂÂs List a couple of times, and each time surrendered. He was labeled as having separation anxiety, which if you stop and think about it is understandable. All of the bouncing / moving / dumping / whisking him away to another building when I told them that Sue would be getting him in the next 24 hours, did not do him any favors.
7-30-15 Nickolai had complete vetting done, since nothing was done for him. (Why would people pass around on CraigâÂÂs List an intact deaf ACD?)
He was a cryptorchid, which caused him to have a 2 hour surgery to âÂÂfindâÂÂ the other one. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested, etc. He is under weight, yet finally eating better quality foods. He is on mega-dose of antibiotics due to the invasive surgery, and he seems much more happy now! After he is released from his surgery restrictions, I will start introducing him to other dogs.
Our adoption fee ($250) covers the age appropriate spay / neutering, heart worm testing, rabies, distemper combo, microchipping and any other necessary medical that a dog may need. Please consider a rescue that comes to you with all of the routine medical (and then some) already done.Â
