Don't Overlook MeUPDATED BIO!
Sultan was turned into the shelter by his owner with a serious infection in his paw. It had not been treated and the infection was rapidly spreading. Thanks to the GSROC support network, he promptly got the treatment he needed. Our vet has told us Sultan has a chronic paw wound complicated by carpal hyperextension. He is going to need an orthotic made and is seeing our orthopedic specialist. He is currently wearing a splint while we raise funds
$1,100 is needed for this orthotic. Our financial cupboard is strained beyond its limit with all of the recent dogs we have rescued. Many of them are ill or injured and need assistance. Can Sultan count on your support? All donations, regardless of the amount are needed.
Sultan is in a foster home and they report he is a really sweet boy. Sultan LOVES to play! He is being fostered with a 7 year old female Elkhound and a 4year old male shepherd (Zephyr). Sultan and Zephyr play (wrestle) and play chase a lot. They both love to take the ball away from each other. The female does not tolerate rough play and sets the boys straight if they cross the line. Sultan does not react negatively to her correction.
He loves squeaky toys! He is housebroken and loves people! He is good with kids. He is good with the 20 month old granddaughter in his foster home but sometimes needs reminding that she is not a toy. She loves to run so of course he likes to chase her. Chase is his favorite game!
He is a little bit mouthy but is learning that that is not acceptable. He does not react to dogs (large and small) and did not react to the cat he encountered at the vet. However, he does not like the neighbors’ cats.
Sultan knows basic commands and rides great in the car. He is gentle when taking treats and takes corrections easily. He shows no food aggression.
