Moses is an adult (approx. 7 year old) mix of possibly Chow/Sharpei. He was found roaming in the suburbs and was definitively not in good shape.
The first photo shows Moses NOW in May. but look at the other photos as well- pictures of neglect and poor health.
The one photo shows him in the crate on his transport from the shelter to a well needed vet. You can see how he looked. The shelter called upon rescue as he was unadoptable given the way he looked and they were not doing anything improving his health. He had puss in his eyes and ears, and was scratching his skin all the time.
ADR.org brought him to vet, blood work was done, he got on a treatment for his skin issues (flee infestation, compromised immune system), eye check (no ulcer or entropy), and ear check (heavy yeast infection was treated).
He was put on a special well balanced nutrition which then in combination with antibiotics brought him to a much better situation. The entire Vet clinic staff fell in love with MOSES.
He has been living with the special care of the vet ever since and he comes with her to work every day.
I have now started looking for a good home for MOSES so that I can bring him on a ground transport to WA to the Pacific Northwest.
A quiet home with a strong bond to whoever will be the lucky person to become Moses's owner - is what I am looking for.
If you have another dog - female might be best. We do not know how he would be with a cat/with cats - but the founder of ADR.org is experienced in dog/cat introductions/scenarios and would be advising you well.
Moses will be first living with the Founder on Orcas Island. A better assessment with her male dogs (and female dog) as well as cats would be on the books.
If you have another pet, ADR.org would allow Moses to stay with you for a week - on trial- to see if you then completely fall for MOSES who has the reputation to be a heart breaker.
In order to receive an application please email ADR@animaldefenserescue.org and then we will talk.
Woof from Moses!
