Foster Update 2/3/2017:
Paxton sometimes walks with a “giggle” in his back end; however, it is not physical. We had him evaluated and Dr. McWatters feels it is a neurological thing causing him to have bad balance and perhaps a loss of sphincter control. Most likely a disk or two damaged. Sometimes this will cause him to release a little poop. Good news is poop is typically firm, dry, and easy to pick up with no stains. But other than that, we absolutely love him. He is basically just a big lug who will occasionally muster up the energy to move from laying in the kitchen to laying on the couch. But he is sweet and good and minds and is basically a non-issue. Very sweet. Don’t let his issue deter you from wanting this boy. He is fabulous and truly it is a non-issue.
Intake Report 10/15/2016:
We were contacted about 2 weeks ago about 4 dogs who had been abandoned by their owner on a farm in rural Arkansas. The lady who’s been feeding them for about 3 months decided that they need to be in a better environment where they can get the love and attention they need and want. After talking with the lady and getting full details, we found out that there were 3 males (Stoney, Angus & Paxton) and 1 female (Cissy) whose owner was a wheelchair bound woman who died about 2 years ago. After her death, the man who lived with her then made the dogs outside dogs. This man is the person who left them on the farm to fend for themselves. Thank goodness for the kind neighbor who saw that they were fed. They are typical old golds. Wonderful temperaments and very calm. All just want to be loved and adored. MAGRR will see that they get their wish.
