Facts about AUGUSTA

  • Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Augusta, a senior at about 8-9 yrs, was taken in by the shelter back in August 2013, when people caring for some strays noticed that she wasn't well. Testing showed she was positive for Leishmania, a very common disease of dogs living in Mediterrean countries. She completed her treatment over two years ago and is doing fine; however, she does continue to take a daily dose of Allopurinol medication to keep it dormant. Allopurinol is an inexpensive medication available at a local pharmacy with a presription from your vet. Costs around $115 for 500 - 300mg pills. Shelter describes her as a sweet and affectionate dog. Augusta is calm, adores cuddles and loves to lay on her back for you to give her belly rubs. She would be a wonderful companion for people of all ages but she requires a home without other pets as she can be dominant with them. If you'd like to adopt Augusta so she has a loving family for her retirement yeaers, please email diannealdan@sympatico.ca for an adoption application. Thanks and we so hope that Augusta's life won't end living in a shelter environment.

About Tails from Greece Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small Canadian-registered charity who rehomes dogs who've come from Greece, providing them with vet care and other needs on arrival; for example, wheelchair cart, full blood work, hip replacement surgery, spay/neuter surgery etc. We are always in need of donations (which are tax receiptable if from within Canada) as we spend anywhere between $25,--- - $35,000 on vet care annually. It's a very rewarding effort, having rehomed over 330 dogs and a few cats.
