5 month old McIntosh was left at a shelter with a broken leg. When we rescued him, we discovered he also had PARVO. As if that wasn’t enough – our vet told us he found old fractures which only showed up on xray. They were improperly treated leaving this sweet puppy with a leg that wasn’t working at all. An amputation was necessary.
Talk about a load of bad news! Now for the good news:
McIntosh has successfully battled PARVO and conquered it. The amputation was completed without complications and he is feeling so much better! He is in a GSROC foster home with his pal Little Princess and they have been able to recuperate together.
His spirit has remained the same through out his ordeal – sweet, friendly and playful. He is not letting the loss of his leg slow him down at all. He is romping and playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Watch him move around with his foster siblings!
He and his friend Little Princess like to play ball and chase each other too.
All donations, regardless of the amount are gratefully accepted! Thank you.
Adoption Application If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430.
Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.
Adoption Donation Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. This donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog's care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.
All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
