"Jack" HW- (ID: 13102) Intake date 1/16/18
Columbus county animal shelter:
The process on our page: We try and raise at least $300 in pledges for each dog who is Heartworm (HW) Negative. If a dog is HW positive then we have the $300 goal but we strive for more bc the treatment can be so pricey. Pull fees at the shelter are currently $45 for the vaccines shown below, and will be going up soon if we can't find a way to help these dogs out. Please help us help them! -rescue process-
If rescue interest in pulling this dog, please PM this page so we can help with the process. Give you fee amounts, let you know about behavior etc. Also please email you 501(c)3 to email above.
Intake Date: 1/16/18. Stray. Dewormed and given distemper/parvo vaccine same day. HW-, given Rabies vaccine and bordatella.
Approximately 1.5yr old, male, lab mix. He appeared to do well with other dogs at shelter. He is a little shy at first, but he seems to just be overwhelmed being at shelter. Once I spent time with him in his kennel long enough he started to warm up quickly.
This handsome boy is up for adoption! Somehow he hasn't had any serious interest in the past few months but that doesn't stop Hermie from smiling! He's a high energy dog who loves to do just about anything. His favorite activities include chewing his nylabone, licking peanut butter off spoons, trotting like a horse to his kennel when it's time for food, and playing with other doggos. He's potty trained, good with kids, and good with dogs. Hes neutered, up to date on shots, current on heartworm prevention, current on rabies, and ready for his furever home! If interested feel free to contact me or Pound Buddies. 😊
Busy weekend ahead so #Baileytheninjamonkey is staying back home while I head out of town (super weird to not have her close by). We did a quick obedience session before I left, here’s a glimpse of some of it (ignore the disheveled bedroom, this was in the middle of cleaning up from the stomach flu hitting our house). I adore working obedience with this dog, it is so much fun and so rewarding.
Taping a session like this really helps me grow as a trainer/owner, as it shows me where I have room for improvement, such as solidifying my commands (we just started working on positioning on the right and the behind the back finish) or getting more precise about her heel (didn’t realize she floated so far away from me sometimes!!). It also gives me a better sense of goals for the future, such as simplifying the hand signals I’m using. I don’t ever plan on competing with her and I like incorporating both verbal and nonverbal signals, but they could use some cleaning up!! *********
I’ve been asked a couple times in the past about training with treats and how to manage having obedience without using them, so I wanted to quick address how I approach that issue, so check out the comment for my thoughts and experience!
Helped mom open her @fabfitfun box 💝 I really wanted the fuzzy blanket...it looked like the best thing to rip apart #fuzzbyfuzz ...but mom wouldn't let me have it #lamemom I would've even let her have it afterward #ugh 👀
I am NOT a happy camper today 😔 I somehow split my toenail and it hurts, so Dad took me to the doctor today while Mom was at work (I don’t know why he couldn’t have just taken me there 🤷♀️). Anyway, the doctor said I have to take medicine for 10 days and keep it all wrapped up so I can’t lick it 🙄 I guess someone else will have to chase the squirrels for a few days!
Mama misses you soooo much. This has been the hardest several days of breaking down into tears at random. I know we did the right thing by putting you to sleep and letting you go in peace since your kidneys were failing but it’s still so difficult to cope with. I know you didn’t go in pain which I’m thankful for but it’s the fact that you’re gone and I won’t be able to see you anymore that hurts the most. You were my baby since I was 8 years old and we grew up together. You were the best dog anyone could ever ask for. It’s gonna be so tough going to grandma’s house and not being greeted by your happy face at the door. You were always so sweet even when meeting new people. You were always by everyone’s side in their time of need. You kept my grandpa and oma company when they weren’t in good shape and you kept my grandma company after they passed so she wasn’t alone. I will always love you and who knows maybe one day we’ll see each other again. Even though I am so heartbroken our time was cut short, I am so thankful for the 16 years we had together and will cherish them always. You lived a full life filled with so much love. I love you sooo much and that will never change even though you’re not physically here anymore. RIP baby girl. If there is a doggy heaven, I know you’re definitely there, my little Angel. 💕 #myfurbaby#rip#angel#labmix#sharpei#thebestdogandfriend#sad#heartbroken
