FRODO - $100's Story...

All pets adopted out will be spay/neutered, micro-chipped, Heartworm tested, rabies and relevent vaccinations.

NO DOG WILL BE ADOPTED TO BE AN OUTSIDE DOG!

Monthly Heartworm preventative, and monthly flea/tick preventative must be administered throughout the course of the dogs life.

The adoption donation of dogs may vary. Please check out each individual dogs information for the minimum donation amount.

The Application can be downloaded from the website, or feel free to email to request one.

www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org

Indepth application, references and a home check will be required before adoption is completed.

Anyone wanting to adopt a German Shepherd MUST have knowledge about their needs. These are very intelligent dogs that need lots of exericse, both physically and mentally.

Please discuss and consider if you are now, and will be in the foreseable future, in a financial position to provide to the dogs needs, unexpected vet bills, and common health issues specific to the breed.

Please note, any 'curtousy post' is just that, GaDaH knows nothing about that individual animal, however, will pass on your enqury to the rescue that has the pet.



Young GSD puppy

FRODO is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. He has had a tough life already and he is still so young. He had been badly abused, extremely fearful of humans, treated like a raging tiger as a puppy at the shelter, and was so scared he wouldn't have his bowl movements.

After lots of work and time, FRODO learnt to trust and relaxed with the pack, he gained trust in humans and we thought we had found the perfect home. This didn't work out, as FRODO was allowed to "rule the roost" at a young age and he came back to GaDaH.
FRODO was taken to the GaDaH vet (Callaghan Road Animal Hospital, Dr. G) with suspected hip dysplasia. X-rays showed that his right leg did indeed have the start of hip dysplasia, however, more importantly both his knees were bowed.
Since FRODO is still young, his growth plates are not yet 100% complete in his legs and so Dr. G does not want to perform any surgery until then. It is estimated that around November 2012, FRODO will be able to have surgery.
His first surgery in November will be Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO) on his right hip, this is where the diseased hip joint is taken out, thus taking away any and all future pain. He will also have surgery on his right knee. Part of the bone will be cut away, pulled back into place, and then pinned. It will take approximately 3 months to recover, with light exercise increasing over time, and some basic stretching exercises.
Around March 2013 FRODO will go back to Dr. G, to have his other knee operated on, in the same manner.
Although this might put people off, ALL of FRODO's surgery costs will be paid for by the rescue, through donations and fundraising.
FRODO is one of the sweetest dogs ever, he will play nicely with the other dogs, yet when he has had enough he will go and chill out in the rescue room. He waits patiently for treats behind all the other dogs, and is very well behaved.
After care surgery will not be too intense, he will obviously require pain medications and anti-inflammatory, and anything else deemed necessary by Dr. G. You will be amazed at how agile these dogs are, and he will be out and about in no time. Your job is ensuring he builds up his muscle in the time-frame expected, and more than anything give him lots of the one on one love and attention that he cannot possibly get whilst at the rescue.
FRODO is:
An indoor boy
Neutered
Rabies
Microchipped
Heartworm Negative
up to date on his shots
House trained
Loves to play
Very loving and affectionate, although can be reserved
Would make the perfect companion

GaDaH does not have a regular venue, however, we do attend most of the AAPAWS mega adoption events, and the yearly San Antonio PET EXPO's.

We enjoy bringing potential pets to your home, so that you can get more of a feel for the dog/puppy, and how it interacts with your family members.

For more information, please email

giveadogahome@live.com

Our Adoption Process...

NO DOG, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES will be adopted out to be an OUTSIDE DOGS.

All dogs are to be part of the family and treated as such.

If you are looking for a guard dog, a protection dog, or just a dog to keep in your yard, then please reconsider the responsibilities of owning a dog.
Please go our website "www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org" to download an application form.

Complete it and send it to "giveadogahome@live.com" so arrangements can be made for a meet and great.

GaDaH will bring the potential adoptable pets to your home for a meet and greet, once the application, and references have been submitted.

The adoption process includes, but is not limited to:

A meet and greet
An in-depth application - download from website
A letter of reference from a current or former vet - on their letter headed paper
Two written references from people who know you and your family well - (not from family members).
A meet and greet on neutral ground with any other dogs
A home visit
A home visit with the dog/puppy

Potential adopters are encouraged to meet potential dogs/puppies as often as they like, and no rush decisions made. If after the above, both parties would like to go forward with an adoption, then a ONE-WEEK Temporary foster contract is completed, before any adoption process can be complete.

This is to ensure the potential adopters, and as equally important the dog/puppy, and GaDaH are all happy.
