Savannah came  to Rescue Reinvented after being hit by a car in September 2016 Fracturing both her radius and ulna on her left front leg .  Her owner gave her up and she was renamed Degueyter in honor of the financial donor that paid for her orthopedic surgery.  Her medical foster picked her up a few days after her surgery and shortened her name to “Deg”.

 

 

Deg remained in a splint for 6 weeks after her surgery and required crating.  Once her vet cleared her of the splint and crate rest her fosters began to integrate her into their pack.  Although Deg was a very affectionate to her fosters and to the humans that she came into contact with, she was very aggressive towards other dogs.  A trainer was brought into the situation and some basic work was done to start rehabilitation of the aggressive behavior.  Her fosters worked with her for a little over two weeks and during the third week Deg accepted her new foster brothers and sisters and the aggression stopped.  

 

Deg has been living happily along side four other dogs.  She eats with them, lays with them, and roams freely in the yard with them.    

 

In the beginning of January Deg underwent Fast Kill heart worm treatment, and has been on preventative since .  Shortly after this procedure Deg began developing abscesses in the area of her surgical implants and it was determined that the plate and screws used to correct the leg fractures needed to be removed.  Deg under went surgery to remove the hardware on March 7 th  and has been crated with a splint since.  

 

Although her fosters have come to see her as one of their own dogs, they realize that if they keep her they will no longer be able to help other dogs and are willing to let her go to save many more.  She is more than ready to get adopted out into her forever home where she will bring tons of love to her new parents.  

 

We anticipate that Deg will be ready for adoption in early May.  The adopter should be someone prepared for a re occurrence of dog aggression during pack integration, or possibly remaining the only dog of the home.  

 

She is house  broken;  crate trained, and knows many basic commands.  She will gladly work for treats.  She pulls hard when walking with a leash even with a martingale collar, but performs well with a prong collar  (only for walking on a leash) .  She knows verbal sit, down, house, kennel, come, food, treat, and medicine.  As well as visual sit commands, and down touch commands.  She just recently started jumping but her fosters believe that this has come with the  presence of  the splint and she is just blow ing off energy and they will work with her on this once the splint is gone.  She has met chickens with minimal prey drive, and has had a nose to nose introduction with a horse that has gone well.  She knows the “Deg” name well, and it may be counterproductive to change it

About Rescue Reinvented

About Our Rescue Group...

It’s all about the dogs!

Rescue Reinvented is a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer, foster based organization in Houston, Texas. Our mission is to rescue and train dogs, primarily German Shepherd Dogs, with the goal of finding them a permanent and loving home. All dogs will receive full veterinary care, including spay/neuter, positive training, and necessary behavior modification before they are ready to adopt. The organization will provide ongoing support and training to adopters of our dogs.

In the future, Rescue Reinvented plans to also add focus on service and community, with two distinct programs to identify potential Service/Companion Dog candidates as well as outreach to senior citizens and people with serious illness or disability to help them keep their pets by providing food and transportation for vet care.

Our Adoption Process...

See our Website for Important Adoption Policies

http://rescuereinvented.org/?page_id=4767

To adopt a dog, we require a mandatory donation to help offset the costs of medical treatment and expenses incurred during the rescue. Best case scenario medical treatment includes examinations, heartworm tests, heartworm treatment or preventative, spay/neuter, and vaccinations. However, many dogs come into our rescue malnourished and suffering from infections, which adds on to the cost of treatment.

All adoptions include 2 private training sessions, and all dogs are spay/neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, and current on heartworm preventatives.

Our rescue is entirely volunteer run, ALL adoption donations go directly back towards helping rescue another dog. We could not do this without the generosity of our adopters!
