|Pet ID #:||Eeyore|
Eeyore came to us from a backyard breeding situation right before the snow storms that Charleston had last year. His brother that came in with him was adopted but Eeyore is still with us.
It is a sad situation because the person breeding these dogs is breeding a female that is a GSD and a Male that is a GSD/Lab mix and trying to pass them off as purebred dogs.
A concerned citizen saw that these pups were pulled away from the parents. The parents were in one kennel that had cover and shelter and the two pups that were left were in a second kennel that had no cover, no dog houses, NO shelter from the elements. Their kennel was full of mud and the poor pups had not choice and they were having to stand and lay down in it! With the oncoming snow storms and the freezing temps the concerned citizen approached this person and asked them why they still had the two black pups and were they going to bring them inside to get them out of the elements from the freezing temps. They were just small babies then and they would freeze to death! The owner replied no, she wasn't bringing them in and she still had them because they were black and didn't look like pure GSDs so she couldn't sell them. She stated it was the first time her female had any black puppies. She sold the rest to buyers that were not aware they weren't pure GSDs.
The concerned citizen contacted us and asked us if we would be willing to help and of course we said yes. She approached the owner who was willing to sign them over to us. We offered to help the owner in getting her adult dogs altered and she declined and said that she was going to continue to breed these dogs.
Yes, taking these pups only gave this person an easy "out" but it also meant life or death for these poor babies and we were not going to let these babies die in the freezing temps.
SO... .MOVING FORWARD....
A little about Eeyore! Eeyore is a goofy young man now. Although he is 3/4 German Shepherd he resembles more of the lab side of him.
Eeyore is such a goofy little guy! He LOVES to smile at you. And no, it is not aggressive in any form of way! When he gets excited he likes to show it by smiling back at you! I am working on teaching him to smile on command! I have taught one other dog in the not to far past to smile on command so I am trying to do the same thing with this sweet boy!
Eeyore loves to play with other dogs and is an active boy! He would love to have a home with a fenced in yard and possibly another doggie friend who he can romp and play with! He does better with older children that will love on him. We have introduced him to smaller children, but he was a little afraid of them so we would prefer to see him go to a home without smaller children.
He is great with other dogs, doesn't seem to mind the cats (although we will reconfirm before placed) and he has been around our gentle giants, aka the horses, and he doesn't seem to bother them. (we have never let him loose with them but he doesn't seem to mind them either)
We are hoping that, like his brother, we can also find him the perfect family as well. Is that YOU?!? Contact us to schedule a time to come out and meet this beautiful fun loving pup! He could be yours or your child's next best friend!
