***THIS DOG IS LOCATED IN DALLAS, TEXAS***
***FOSTER OR ADOPTION NEEDED***
USHER is ready to move out of his medical foster and into either an adoptive home or a foster home. We have another dog with serious medical issues who needs to get into medical foster.
We pulled Usher from a rural Texas shelter when his elderly owners turned him and his companion in because they could no longer care for them. That is probably the understatement of the year. It had been quite some time since Usher had been properly cared for, unfortunately. He came to us with a skin infection, eye infection, ear infection, extremely underweight and tested positive for a tick borne disease.
Fast forward about 30 days.... Usher's eyes are doing great, his ear infection is cleared up, as is his skin infection. He has a very good appetite and is starting to put a little weight on but he still has a way to go before he is at optimum weight.
Despite the years of neglect, he seems to have left his past behind him and hasn't looked back. Usher has blossomed in his foster home! When he first came to us he looked like he was about 10 years old and had given up on life. He is actually only 3 years old and he is now quite spunky and loves to frolic in the yard with the other dogs in his foster home. He has good house manners and is playful and sometimes goofy. He is mellow and calm when meeting new people and seems to love children. He's good with other dogs and ignores the cats.
This is a really awesome and amazing dog. He is looking for a loving home where he will be a treasured member of the family. He loves to be loved and he has a lot of love to give back!
**To date, Usher's vet bills have surpassed the $1,000 mark and we still have more to come. If you can't adopt, please consider making a tax deductible donation to help us pay for his medical care** DONATE HERE
