Junior

Junior is a Rottweiler/Shepherd mix of 12 years.  Junior would appreciate your sponsorship to help with his medicine and medical needs.  This handsome boy has seizures and is currently on medicine to control them.  He has had dental work done and surgery to remove a few growths in his mouth. Unfortunately, one of the growths did come back as cancer. So, for now, we spoil him as much as we can.  He loves to go for car rides and walks.  But you have to be on your guard as he has words for every car that passes us on the walk! He loves to play ball which includes fetching a basketball, soccer or even a football.  He is a favorite among all of the caretakers!

Update (February 2015): Junior is almost 13 years old now and is still not letting the growth from his mouth hold him back from enjoying his daily walks or being on alert when someone is outside of his kennel 🙂  Being a larger breed dog, his back end has been bothering him.  Since he is on the anti-seizure medicine and his liver is not-so-great, it was tricky trying to find some feel-good medicine for those hips!  But, we are starting him on some to see how it goes.  If you have visited our shelter, you can find him spending several nights a week in the real life room where there are multiple dog beds, couch, TV and oodles and oodles of toys which he enjoys.
