This dog Breaks My Heart!!!! The owner was going to shoot him because he was chasing her chickens so another lady took him. While that saved his life, he spent it tied to a tree on a short chain in the blazing southern sun. Luckily, the lady called rescue when she decided not to keep him and when the rescue volunteer drove up and saw he was tied up in the sun with no water or food, extremely under weight, had some flea and fly spots on his bony spine, some (possible) chemical burns, she cried! Not only that, due to his former owners neglect, he is heartworm positive. BUT, K-9 will cover the cost of treatment and he'll be good as new in not time! He is SWEET AS SUGAR and very docile! We think he's about 2 years old. This fella sure needs some TLC!
UPDATE: Zeus has been diagnosed with epilepsy. He will need to be kept on medication for the rest of his life. As long as he has the medication he will be just fine!
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=64 or email our Foster Coordinator at email@example.com
