this little young, loyal and funny dog hopes that someone here in WA falls for him.
JULIAN was a stray dog that possibly was just left behind in a back yard, but when he wandered off he was hit by a car . He had a broken elbow and was left on the street. Animal Control picked him up and brought him to the Moreno Valley shelter in CA last end of June. Due to the fact that the shelters will not keep a dog that needs surgery (hence non-adoptable for them) he was put on the "at risk" list which means euthanization list. Rescue at that time are sometimes alerted - mostly it is the rescue network that then brings these cases to light.
AnimalDefense heard about him and another dog and pulled them to safety. Julian had surgery on July 7, and will have to be restrained to little activity until mid August. then we hope the bandage can be taken off and the fracture has healed.
His elbow fracture has healed and he runs around but he should not be exposed all the time to intense activity (e.g. running) as he will always be limping a bit. it is not bothering him nor is it very prevalent.
JULIAN was adopted but his owner will go through some difficult times based on a surgery followed by a long recovery and thought it would be fair to Julian to find him another home.
Until then Julian will enjoy the company of 3 dogs and 3 cats in the home of the Founder of ADR.org on Orcas Island.
JULIAN is anxious to meet you.
He says that he will not move from your side all day, He is alert when someone comes to the door and he will make you smile and enlighten your day. He is good with any size of dog, plays with the cats, and sometimes thinks he can "ride" on them.
If you are interested in Julian please email me at ADR@animaldefenserescue.org and I will send you an application form.
Meet this resilient survivor.
