**URGENT HENDRIX NEEDS FOSTER/'s Story...
Imagine you are a lost puppy wandering the streets of NYC, alone and scared.
A police man gathers you up, and you feel safe…until you arrive at the ACC.
But they provide food and warmth and just before you are dragged down the hall to a room that smells of terror…you are saved!
A Foster home! Suddenly you are loved, living with other dogs, cats, romping on the beach, you believe there is no better life and then… a HOME.
And in this HOME you find love, belonging, recovery, growth and then, terrible PAIN.

This is Hendrix’s story. Pulled from the ACC as Burt Renolds in September of 2012, he found safety with Pick Your Paw Rescue. Hendrix was adopted by a wonderful family and all was well until he began to grow. This “one year old” according to the ACC, grew from 30 to 60 lbs! And this increased weight brought pain in his knees. X-rays show Hendrix has painful double luxating patellas. The veterinarian feels that this is either caused by a genetic defect or that Hendrix was crated so much as a puppy that his knees were forever damaged.
He can no longer run with his Pibble sister. He cannot go down the steps to his own back yard. Hendrix needs surgery and a new place to live. His mom cannot afford the surgery. She physically cannot do the rehab necessary for Hendrix after. We are all heartbroken for Hendrix as well as his family. This was a heartbreaking decision for them and not an easy one to make.
PLEASE help us share Hendrix's story. We need a foster for him that will be able to help him recover from surgery. We cannot schedule surgery until we have a safe place for Hendrix to recover in. He is in pain and needs surgery now! Recovery time is usually 8-10weeks for each knee. Hendrix will need to be on restricted activity during this time. Leash walks only for bathroom breaks the first two weeks and then gradually increase the walk times over the 8-10 week recovery time. He will need some support with a sling under his belly until he is able to bare some weight on his knee. PLEASE consider fostering this boy! If you have any questions please call Tammy at 908-433-1796 Thank you!
Please contact pickyourpaw@gmail.com if you are interested in helping Hendrix by FOSTERING.
We will be posting a chip in for the surgery once we have the estimate from the veterinarian. Thank you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

**URGENT HENDRIX NEEDS FOSTER/, a Shrewsbury Boxer/Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Mastiff for sale in Shrewsbury, or seeking a Boxer/Mastiff dog from a breeder in Shrewsbury.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Shrewsbury 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 Shrewsbury 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 Boxer/Mastiff breeders who help with Boxer/Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Shrewsbury paves the way for another one to be saved.
