Current Location: Hasler, TX
Adoption Date: June 30, 2020
Adopted by: Susan & Brian Meisinger
It was a big day for Joe Eddie, he came to us basically a feral dog and heart worm positive. To say he was a big job is an under statement. Thankfully our foster mom Amy PK and she has done a fantastic jog with him. His new family is Susan & Brian Meisinger in Hasler, TX. They went last month as a family to meet him at foster Amy’s home and fell in love with him. They have two Dachshunds and one of them was very shy and skittish when they first adopted him trying to bite them and they patiently worked through his issues to identify his triggers and gain his trust. Joe Eddie will have a work from home dad and their little boy Logan is begging for Joe Eddie to sleep in his bed.
Travis personally drove Joe Eddie to his new home as he can be a challenge to transport. This is what Travis said about Joe Eddie’s new family:
“This family is perfect for him and his new dad is a secret dog whisperer. It was amazing to see Joe seek out and even approach him in such a short amount of time. The kids are fantastic and patient with him and we went over everything we need to do to get him comfortable in his new home.”
His name shall remain Joe Eddie and you can see they have everything ready for him at their home including his own bowl.
This adoption makes all of us so happy 💞
First up is #149 a male Bloodhound born on 11/12/2013. Jessica saw his photo in the catalog and was determined that we would bring this boy home to Texas. With him being an intact male we don’t know who he is and if he will leave the girls alone, so we may need to send him off to a foster home. Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Joe Eddie. Joe Eddie is a Federal Express driver out on the roads making sure we all get our packages.
Mr. Joe Eddie is an incredibly shy boy and at 6 years old it seems was never taught basic skills, he will panic on a leash and is very afraid of people. But… obviously super handsome😘❤️
A little update on Joe Eddie, he came from a pretty crappy mill, that we already knew. It was Deb Ritters mill that the DA in her state closed down due to multiple complaints and multiple citations with lack of care of her dogs. All of her dogs were sold at the auction we participated in several weeks back. The vast majority of the dogs we rescued from her were some of the most feral, unsocialized, terrified dogs we have taken in at one time before. Joe Eddie couldn’t advance at the Ranch and we knew that so we sent him to be fostered with Amy and he has done so very well there, he just needed tighter quarters with humans so he had no choice but to cope with them as opposed to fleeing like he did at the Ranch.
Amy said he readily comes up for affection now, he wants real bad to get up on the couch but its too scary still, he does however lay at their feet in the home. We discovered this week that along with being socially neglected Joe Eddie is also heartworm positive. He has now been neutered and he will stay with Amy while he finishes that treatment working on his social needs.
