found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
time. We spotted him in a ditch by the highway, hardly recognizable as a dog. When
we stopped, he tried to get up and come toward us and our breath caught. He had that
look in his eyes that gave away the fact that he had been someone’s pet at some point
in his life. He dragged his hind end as if his legs or pelvis were broken, but it
turned out that he was just too weak to walk. He was bald in large patches and
covered with infected wounds & sores that gave off the smell of rotting flesh. There
was something very wrong with his mouth. We later found out that this was from a
poorly healed broken jaw. Several of his teeth were shattered and fragments of the
teeth were embedded in his gums. A large part of his tongue was missing. We cannot
imagine how this dog managed to eat anything, or how he has survived. We brought
him into the car and drove him back to Calgary with all of the windows down to
relieve some of the nauseating stench. The ride back was very quiet, as though all
of us were ashamed to be members of the same species as the person who could leave a
dog to suffer as Felix has suffered.
Felix has received extensive veterinary treatment and is doing much better now. He
was already housebroken and follows me everywhere. He will need to finish treatment
for his skin problems, put on some weight and learn to walk on a leash before he can
be adopted. It is evident that Felix has been the victim of abuse, so he will need a
calm, patient, gentle home. If you want to open your heart & home to Felix, please
give us a call at 403-938-4890. We are also asking for donations to help with his
