Kelor's story
Kelor is an almost a 8-year old dog we rescued from a local shelter several months ago. Having recently lost one of our senior pups, his images tugged at our heartstrings. The shelter told us his owners left him at the shelter because they were no longer interested in taking care of him and wanted the shelter to handle it. Through our network of transporters, we were able to spring Kelor and begin his treatment.
When we first met Kelor, he was severely overweight, had a terrible upper respiratory infection, had oozing bed sores all over his body, skin tags that had ruptured, missing hair, fatty tumors, etc. During his initial vet visit, we discovered he was also suffering from heartworms and a thyroid issue. It was also discovered that the surgical sites from where the shelter vet removed some of his biggest tumors(before he was in our care) had ruptured due to his inability to move around. We also knew that we had to get the weight off of him as quickly as possible.
Through regular walks, a controlled diet, and thyroid medication, and two very strong rounds of antibiotics, you wouldn't even recognize Kelor if you saw him at the shelter on day 1. His weight is now manageable and he is running around like a spring chicken. After evaluating his new found love of life, we wanted to explore the option of finding him a forever home to live out his remaining years in luxury!
Kelor is somewhat "set in his ways" and would only adopt him to a home without other dogs or cats. He has not displayed any aggression towards other animals; however, we do not know his full past and would rather err on the side of caution (as part of the adoption process, we will sponsor 1 training session with our certified trainer for local adopters). He loves to go on walks, play tug-of-war, and will even play fetch on occassion. He is housebroken and does not have issues being left alone for extended periods of time; however, we would recommend an extra-large crate until he is fully accostomed to his forever home. He will need to remain on flea/heartworm preventative (we recommend Advantage Multi) to ensure that the heartworms do not come back at a later time. He is currently taking thyroid medication and may need to continue this treatment forever, but this will depend on regular checkups at the vet.
