We brought Mickey in from Korea. He was in a shelter with an injured left rear leg – it had probably been caught in a trap. He was also heartworm positive. He was placed in a foster home in Korea while his leg healed and he got through his heartworm treatment. He then came to GFFL, where he has been in a foster home. Because his leg was cut off below the knee, we took him to the Sacramento VCA to see if he would be a candidate for a prosthesis. The surgeon said yes, so he was fitted with one. Mickey is a very sweet and affectionate boy, but is not safe around small dogs or cats. He lived peacefully with another large dog in Korea. He has gotten along OK with the other large dogs at the foster house, although his play style is exuberant.
Rayhan is a 4 year old male Saluki from Dubai. He was in a foster home in Dubai before he came here where he lived with cats. He has been in a foster home here and gets along with the other three dogs (2 Salukis, 1 greyhound) in the home. Based on his experience with cats in Dubai, we would say that he is cat workable with an indoor only cat who is dog savvy and won’t run from him. This lovely boy is very affectionate and playful and should do well with kids. Rayhan has been diagnosed with renal disease and is on the Royal Canin renal kibble. He will need to be on this life-long. GFFL can help with the costs of this special diet and the supplements that he is on.
Casey came to us via the Placer shelter. They thought he was a GSD/Sighthound mix, DNA results show that he is actually a Belgian Malinois/ Doberman mix. Casey is a happy, easy going boy who has done well with the other dogs in the pack. He is a young boy about 1 1/2 years old, so he will need some additional leash work, but he already knows some commands, like sit, stay. He’s a smart dog! He can be shy with new people. Ideally he will live in home with another dog. Casey has done well in cat testing.
