When we saw this sweet face on Facebook, we knew we had to take action. Don Juan is an 8- 8.5 year old who was dumped at a shelter. Fortunately, a good Samaritan took him to the vet to try to help locate his family. Paw Squad posted him to FB, and the rest is history. One of our most valuable transporters drove to West VA to bring him to Cincinnati so he would have a second chance at a good life. He is a very sweet and gentle senior who loves everyone, and we most definitely think he deserves so much better than living his life at a shelter or not being giving an opportunity to find a new home.
12/3/22 FOSTER UPDATE:
Hello from the Landis foster home!
Don is checking in. His time at our house has been healing. During the past 5 months, many health problems have been worked through. This is a real story of rescue!
This guy is such a good boy. I tell him that all day. Even though his hearing is sparse, I think he knows when he is being praised. He has learned to come and sit with the assistance of an e-collar. If he is paying attention, he doesn’t need the collar as he can see my hand signals. He is smart and super trainable. His coat is so soft and he is a big butterball when it comes to cuddles.
He still wears a belly band around the house, but his leaky pipes have certainly improved. This guy is a great dog who needs his fur-ever home. He will change your life when you meet him. His spunk, tail wags, big old ears, and cuddles will melt your heart.
He is super chill and just needs all the love. OH, and if you like walking….he’s the best walking partner!
Don is what rescue is all about. He is a true survivor with a heart full of forgiveness. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Don Juan!
PREVIOUS FOSTER UPDATE:
Hello from Pat, Heather and Jane!
We are here to report Don Juan is a sweetie pie! He doesn’t bark. Sleeps all night in the crate. And is a Labrador lounge lizard. He’s picking up quickly on what a walk means. All the good sniffs don’t get wasted on this guy. He gets along great with Jane. Meaning, they are basically lazy together. But, grab that leash….and it’s time to go!
He has mastered the “please pet me” look. And of course, we can’t resist giving him all the pets. Since he can’t hear, we are going to try to communicate with hand signals. We need to discuss what hand signals to use so we are all on the same page. I hope we can get his comfort level and health under control. He deserves to feel good and find a family to love on him. I couldn’t imagine being abandoned during a time when he needs humans the most. Thank you for helping this special guy.
