Sage, a forever foster, sadly crossed the rainbow bridge in July. Sage lived his last few years on a beautiful farm with his bonded brother Buddy and several other golden siblings. He was deeply loved by his human family. His health started to decline and his long term foster home helped him cross over.
Christina was a little bit shy when we met her to bring her home, but quickly warmed up and made herself comfortable at our house. She made friends with both of our cats the first night here! We've been on many walks to burn off puppy energy and she's learned many new things: garage door openers are kind of scary, don't step on storm sewer grates, vacuum cleaner is fun to follow, and frogs in the pond are loud! Gets along well with our dogs and all dogs she's met so far. Loves cats! Good with people! Will make a great active family dog!!
Oscar has made great progress with his allergy management. At his last vet appointment, he “graduated” to a long term maintenance program. Oscar will need to continue to adhere to a strict diet that avoids all his trigger foods. He’ll likely need Apoquel pills and twice weekly staph lysate shots (given at home) to manage his other allergies. He successfully completed his 16-week twice weekly staph lysate injections to build up his tolerance to the naturally occurring staph on his skin. Oscar will never be a ‘water dog’ as he needs to be completely dried as soon as possible after he has a bath or gets wet. But he doesn’t mind. Running after tennis balls is more his style. He has always been a happy dog, but he’s even happier now that his allergies are under control and he’s comfortable. He is a fast runner and often jumps and catches a tennis ball while it’s still in the air. He’s an easy-going guy who is finally ready to find his forever home.
