June, 2013 - Rest In Peace, dear Mr. Memphis!
How could anyone throw this Dude out, look at this face daily
and still turn away?
and his sweet DobeLady, Dear Abby, wondered the same thing!!
Her advice: Let's blow this town!!
Dober-dude Memphis was turned in to rescue by his owners along
with his 8 year-old Dober-sister Abby. He is housebroken and crate
trained but 5 years ago his owner fenced in their yard and put
Memphis and Abby outside full time while the 2 small dogs of the
home continued to live indoors. Memphis would sometimes squeeze
himself in through the tiny dog door so he could nap on the sofa.
After finding him on the sofa, they changed the backyard fencing
so that he had no access to the dog door. He is an affectionate
boy who has been starved for attention since being assigned to
the yard. He does not destroy anything in the home and gets along
well with other dogs, large and small. He may he may have some
disk issues and we are hoping that acupuncture relieves some of
the inflammation; he also has a large pressure sore on each of
his hips. When he came to rescue, he'd had no veterinary care
since 2009 and both sores were infected. He will need to have
surgical removal of the fluid filled sores and they will be sent
off for biopsy. For now he has been started on antibiotics.
Needs if any: Will know more after all his medical tests
all come back and he's gotten some acupuncture.
