Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Current Location: Sachse, Texas
Adoption Date: August 7, 2020
Adopted by: Matthew and Kelly Small
Yesterday was the second time that Dr. Wilkins was adopted. We hate it when a dog comes back, especially when its not his fault, it’s confusing to them and we need to start over again.
This is his over again.
Dr. Wilkins will live with Matthew and Kelly Small from Sachse, Texas. They have an active lifestyle with hiking and camping and they intend for him to come along with all of their adventures. Dr. Wilkins is a very intelligent busy pups and they are on board for giving him his best life. They work opposite schedules so one of them will always be home with him and I think he will be a great dog for them.
His new name from what I understand will be Coppa.
Happy life sweet boy 🥰
He came to Laura’s attention this afternoon. He was just picked up as a stray in Dallas and ended up in the shelter. As you can see he’s got some real problems that he needs help with. He is estimated to be 10 months old and we are sure with lots of good medicine, good food and good care he will be a gorgeous dog. The shelter wanted to keep him until June 8th on stray hold but we asked if we could pick him up today to avoid the risk of upper respiratory infection and they agreed. Unfortunately, if an owner steps forward we will have to return him but we will cross our fingers that doesn’t happen.
He will be picked up and transported to the ranch this afternoon where he will remain in isolation with lots of soft clean blankets where he can rest and begin to recover from the terrible condition he is in.
Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Dr. Wilkins
I’ll close the night with an update about Dr Wilkins. He got up this morning and went potty and had a big drink of water outside and went back in and climbed in his bed.
This poor pup is just flat out exhausted, all he wants is to sleep soundly and safely. He was too weary to stand and eat his food so we just keep it next to him to nibble on it when he wants to.
I’ve checked on him multiple times throughout the day and the outcome is always the same.
He’s tucked into his fresh blanket sound asleep.
This is how it will be for probably a couple of weeks, he’s been through hell and needs lots of time to recover from that.
