Gather around…..pull up a chair…..have a seat….we have a story to tell!
We would like to introduce SEPR Cobain.
Unlike some of the other dogs in our program, Cobain had a family of his own one upon a time, in a small Midwest town. His first family lived across the street from the shelter, he was left outside for long hours during the day and he would frequently let himself out to run over and try to play with the shelter dogs. This was his routine until he was given to another family, and then another family after that. Finally after some time had passed, the shelter had gotten a phone call from a landlord stating that a tenant had left a dog in a kennel for over 48 hours with no food, water, or anywhere to potty. Of course they weren’t going to let him stay like that, so Cobain became a resident of the shelter he used to visit.
Cobain sat in this shelter for almost an entire year, all he saw was his kennel run. During his long stay at the shelter, Cobain began to grow a little reactive to dogs, which in turn raised his stress levels. Being a small town shelter with limited resources, there was only so much time they could do to help him. Finally after 11 months, a foster spot opened up and Cobain walked out of the shelter with the promise never to return.
Once he got settled in, he got a thorough check up by our favorite vet Dr. Tom. We realized Cobain had a torn ACL in his back left leg, so not only was he in the shelter for a year he also had been sitting in pain for a long time. We scheduled surgery right away, and repaired his bum knee. Cobain is recovering nicely, in a few weeks he will be back to 100% like nothing even happened.
Because of his urgent surgery, and the recovery that followed, Cobain has had to take things a little slower than usual. Introductions to canine residents, visits to public places, pack walks, everything has had to take a back seat for now. Once he is fully recovered, he can partake in some of the more fun things like pack walks, although, canine introductions will still be taken very slowly.
Don’t worry, Cobain doesn’t hold any grudges, he loves every person he meets. He is very attached to his people, and would love nothing more than to be by your side. He’s just a laid back young kid that wants be a part of a family again.
Be sure to check back for updates as he recovers and settles in more.
SPECIAL RECOGNITION TO COBAIN'S FOSTER FAMILY FOR THEIR TIME AND DONATIONS:
