Felix's Story...
We call him Felix, which means happy or lucky. He is lucky that we found him in

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

medical bills.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Felix, a Okotoks Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Okotoks, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Okotoks.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Okotoks already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Okotoks breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Okotoks paves the way for another one to be saved.
