Joe!! Please help him weather this next storm!
DobeGent has a lot of love yet to give and receive!!
Joe is a wonderful 7 year-old Senior boy who
has a very sad story. He is actually a Hurricane Katrina
victim who's hips where crushed in the storms. The vets
were so amazed at his wonderful temperament that no one
had the heart to put him down. A foster home was found with
a lady who rehabilitates wildlife and she lovingly nursed
him along with rabbits, opossum, raccoons, and squirrels
as his roommates. Joe never attempted to harm his little
friends but his foster mom's home was so badly damaged she
finally contacted GCDR for assistance on his behalf. She
sent a photo of Joe walking around with his friend the opossum
that won everyone's heart.
He loves to be scratched on his neck and behind the ears
and get's along with everyone. He will stand with his head
in your lap for longer than you can sit still. His favorite
things, other than his humans, are big soft beds and dinner.
Special Needs: Joe has a bleeding disorder so surgery is
not an option. He has been placed on arthritis meds that
have helped his hips and he is now moving around with a
zip in his steps. Joe has also recently been diagnosed with
DCM so he also needs cardio meds to help lessen the strain
on his heart. GCDR will continue to shower Joe with love
and care to make all his remaining days as comfortable and
filled with love as possible.
