Meet River

We got a call from a groomer that some teens found this puppy in a Riverside Park back in January 2015. We are always so full but once the pictures were shown to one of our Volunteer/board members, it was a no-brainer.

He suffered for God knows how long in the park with out food or shelter or water. He had severe mange and was very emaciated; just a bag of bones with painful sores from head to paws. To keep him warm and prevent shock, we put a heating lamp, blankets, and a big bowl of wet-n-dry food and chicken. His legs were so inflamed that could not walk and needed to be carried. His breathing was abnormal. We started to pet him and talk to him, and his bony tail started to wag. We did not think he was going to make it through the night, but from that point on it was uphill for River.

(10 days after we got him, he defecated out an In-N-Out wrapper. ?)

Well, he is all better now after 12 dips every other week we did ourselves. After some pro-biotics, good food, and lots of loving, he is so ready for his forever home. He needs a foster home too to help the puppy behavior. He now knows how to walk on a leash but needs further guidance in this area. This big baby loves life, toys, and people and would so love doggie friends. Warning, he is a lap dog.

He has a high energy level which will be great for those looking forward to walking or jogging on a regular basis.

River is just about two years old now just waiting at his chance at a forever home.
