Hero came in one Monday, and immediately caught the heart of the shelter staff members as a real special dog. You could tell from the look in his eyes, he was in pain, but you could still see his spirit shining through.
He came in from Union County animal control 4-2-13, emaciated and covered in sores and severe hair loss weighing 32 pounds.
He was also neutered and microchipped. His name was registered as Hero. Attempts have been made to contact an owner but no response.
Now after a few weeks of good diet, antibiotics and tender loving care from our shelter staff and veterinarian, he can actually get up and walk. He still has a small limp and is still healing; his hair is now growing back in and now weighs 44 pounds. On a recent walk out of the shelter, he passed many a small dog and cats and never showed any interest, only a quick hello to them.
He showed tolerance from a playful pup while video was being filmed; he never minded a wild playful 5 month old pup jumping all over him.
Hero enjoyed the sunshine and the grass so much today.
He walks well on a leash right by your side and sits and stays next to you.
Hero has his bad memories I am sure, but now you can only see happiness in his eyes while he plays with you.
He truly lives up to his name, as he has been our hero and brought us all more love for why we come to work everyday.

Larry Brymer-manager of Carlock Toyota helped to get us rolling again with a good used van donation. They are still keeping a look out for a good used cargo van for us to transport dogs/cats on rescue and adoption events. Thanks go out to all involved in getting us rolling again!
