Breed: Mixed Breed
Weight: 11 pounds
Current Location: Gunter, TX
Adoption Date: August 12, 2021
Adopted by: The Sadler family
Joanie was adopted by the Sadler family today. Autumn and her son made the drive from Gunter to pick her up. They have been looking for a playmate for their 2yr old hound mix and Joanie fit the bill. She’ll also have a 14 yr old Puggle sister and 2 human brothers. They have a big back yard for lots of running and playing. They are still thinking about a name and will let us know. There are no words to describe how happy I am that this very special sweet girl is going to have her own home/family, be loved beyond measure and have a wonderful life. Can’t wait to watch you grow up on the Happy Tails page.About Joanie:
We were contacted very late a couple of nights ago about this female Bordeaux down in a shelter in Laredo with two pups. They are all in very poor condition. We tagged them ASAP yesterday morning before they were heading off to be euthanized. Mr. Ricky Barnes is on his way down there to pick all three of them up and bring them back to us here.
Terrible situation and they will be safe very soon…
Laura says she doesn’t have any interest which is hard to understand. She is unique, loving and smart what more can a person want.
Her life has been nothing but a struggle until she was rescued. Her mama Marion is spoken for with a family waiting, her little brother has passed away. Joanie is looking for a family that she can call her own. Is that you?
Richie and Joanie were roaming the streets and then ultimately found taking up a safe spot in a warehouse with their Mama Marion. They have not been doing well, so sick with parasites and very low albumin and hematocrit. Dr. Reno had us give them canned recovery which is a very high calorie dog food for instances like this. Their appetite has been poor and she said if we cannot get them to eat they will need to be hospitalized and transfused. Happily, the captains offered them that food and they ate it all up and are doing better and better each day. They are very lucky to be alive and it’s wonderful to see them safe, clean and on the road to recovery.
The story is Marion was found in a warehouse in Laredo with her two pups. She kept these babies alive by nursing them at the expense of her own body. All of them covered in ticks and fleas and the puppies bellies are just full of worms. They will need lots of various worming medications as we know there are many kinds in there. All of them will be first on the list to see Dr. Reno first thing tomorrow morning, in the meantime they are safe, clean and tucked into the isolation room at the sanctuary.
