Picture 1 of 2

Petey is about 2 years old and his special person moved and left him behind. He walks nicely on leash but is a very shy dog. He needs an experienced home to bring him out of his shell. After a slow introduction he is fine with new people. Petey is a 2 year old German Shepherd surrendered to a local kill shelter when his owners could no longer care for him. German Shepherd Rescue pulled him to safety and he was taken right to our vet. He was very scared and clearly devastated about losing his owner. He went to his foster home but 3 days later ended up back at the vet because he was lethargic and not eating. He was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and returned to his foster. Petey tried to fight but ended up in the emergency room. Petey was hospitalized with bacterial pneumonia. 2 days later he was discharged, and returned to his foster home. Petey seemed to be doing ok, but he relapsed and ended up back in the hospital. After two days again in the hospital Petey was discharged and has been recovering at home. Each day we are seeing improvement in his appetite and his energy thankfully but financially our rescue has taken a hit. Petey’s medical bills have totaled nearly $5,000.
