Georgie

Meet Georgie Boy!
Georgie is about 4-5 yrs old and is our newest foster from Uvalde, Texas. We found out that he was shot with a 22cal air gun at some point – 3 pellets are still there. He also has an old back end injury that has resulted in a neurological deficit in his back end. Dr. Albert put him on anti-inflammatory (Carprofen) to see if it would make a difference and to see if it was neuro or not. It didn’t help, so it is in fact neuro and permanent damage that he’ll have to deal with for the rest of his life. Dr. Albert said there isn’t anything that can really be done for it, just to keep him in a good quality food with some joint supplements for now. He has a goofy little gallop and has a hard time with stairs. But he manages a few stairs just fine. He prefers to lay on doggie beds, so you don’t have to worry about him taking up too much room on your couch or in your bed (he can’t get up on it anyway ☹️) He likes other dogs, but prefers to keep to himself. He loves to dig holes and lay in the cool ground in the corner of his fosters yard under the tree, which is super sad if you think about it – look at his sad face. You can just tell that he’s been so mistreated.

If you are looking for a sweet, sweet boy – please give Georgie a chance. You BOTH deserve the love!!
