In late October, we posted an urgent plea to save Mikey: "KENNEL 33,
OWNER SURRENDER, LAB/ SHEPHERD MALE, ABOUT 4 MONTHS OLD,
NO ISSUES WITH OTHER DOGS, VERY SWEET PUP. OWNER SIMPLY DIDN'T WANT HIM". Shortly after this was posted, Greg stepped up to foster Mikey with the hopes of adopting him.
We were so relieved that Greg stepped up because the vet arrived shortly after. He was either going to put dogs down or take them to be vetted for rescue. It was literally the nick of the time.
We were sad to learn that Mikey was very sick and was unable to travel to Washington, DC with Olivia the black lab puppy. He had a bad cough and would not do well on a transport with other dogs. Greg heard this news and immediately drove down to the vet in North Carolina so he could get Mikey treated so he could recover in a home.
We learned that Mikey had pneumonia! The poor fellow was abandoned at the shelter because his owner simply didn't want him and then he caught pneumonia. Well, the day Greg stepped up to save Mikey is the day his luck turned around. Mikey has recovered and Greg says he is adorable. They are working on house training now.
Mikey's name and his past will be behind him and now Augie and Greg are will be together forever!
