Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Adoption Date: June 20, 2019
Adopted by: Gayla
Guess who threw up her hand and said I’ll take Red Velvet home?
Nevermind that she’s 8 years old, and is sick with heart worms, and has a bad heart…
Gayla reached out to us just a few days after we learned the problems that Red Velvet had and said I’m ready to be a red bear hoarder and can I please take Red Velvet home with Ella and Guy Man?
We obviously were thrilled and today Red Velvet joined the little gaggle of red bears at Gaylas house and now they officially are the three red bears!!
We couldn’t be happier for her, she will get absolutely everything she needs and will never look back at her old life.
We hope to see your red bear hoard on the happy tails page Gayla!!!About Red Velvet:
We were contacted back in September about this 8 year old Dogue De Bordeaux by her owners. They were moving into a travel trailer and wanted to surrender her due to the lack of space. We encouraged them to keep their dog explaining she would be happier with her family in a small space than to be uprooted and taken from her family at 8 years old.
We were contacted again a few days ago by this same owner and they said she’s not doing well there and asked if we would take her. We said yes…and today she was dropped off.
She is thin, they said she wouldn’t eat for them but we fixed her a bowl of kibble with some canned salmon on it and she licked the bowl clean, she went outside and peed and pooped for us, and she is just relaxing on the cool floor of the intake room. We were told she has little experience with other dogs, they used to have a neighbor dog jump their fence and she would play with that dog but that’s all we know. We are told that she has had no heart worm preventative for the past 2 years and she came with no medical history at all.
There were no tearful goodbyes, they came and they went…but you know what they say, one door closes and another one opens…. we will just focus on the sweet girl in front of us who wags her tail a little nervously with us but is up for some hugs. We don’t know if she’s healthy, or if she’s not healthy but we will of course give her everything she needs and in the meantime she is resting quietly at the sanctuary while we figure everything out.
