9/18 10:47 AM UPDATE: SHASTA HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!————————
MEET SHASTA. Shasta was dropped off with last night at 8:00 pm under some pretty sad circumstances. Her mom recently passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer, and her dad’s health is also failing; his kids are in the process of moving him into an assisted home. It was Shasta’s veterinarian who actually reached out to us first a few weeks ago to let us know that a Weim might need a new home. CalWEAR was then interviewed by Shasta’s family (in person!) to ensure she was going to be well taken care of while we find her a new home. Shasta was dropped off with TWO crates, multiple beds, blankets, all the toys a dog could possibly want, bowls, leashes, and a healthy supply of high quality food. Her records from the vet go back to when she was an eight week old puppy. All of her puppy shots were given at the appropriate time. Every illness, bug, and flu was documented with a visit to the vet. Very rarely do we ever see that kind of loving commitment from a former family. Proof that sometimes, even the most loved dogs find themselves in situations where they need a new family.
About Shasta herself: Shasta is a petite little thing. Good with other dogs, adults and children. NO CATS. She is two years old, spayed, up to date on all of her shots, housebroken, crate trained, leash trained, and knows her basic commands.
We gave her family our word that we would find her the BEST home. If that’s you, please reach out to us at hello@CalWEAR.org.
Shasta is located in Tustin/Orange, Orange County, CA.
a girlfriend for Meatball?!
…in case you might consider going the Weim route. Shasta sounds lovely.
Very possible! But we also don’t want to get ourselves into a position where we might be wrong and someone gets hurt. So in rescue, we err on the side of caution as much as possible. We don’t recommend that Shasta is placed in a home with cats.
horrific. Obviously a high prey-drive. Our present Weim had been beaten, and I mean whipped, for even looking at rabbits, to keep him minded to work feather only. To this day he tries to hide behind our legs when he sees a rabbit… not normal at all? Sorry about your President’s cat: we don’t allow both animals in a room where there’s food at the same time. Suspect a long build up of food guarding behind that event. Not judging. Just sharing thoughts. No future regime of ours will be allowed guest dogs/friends in our garden: food guarding v. Very small Jack Russell meant our cat had a nasty experience! He remains ok with our Weim, but interestingly neither Weim nor cat will tolerate JR’s. Every dog is an individual. This one food guards indoors, shares happily outdoors. Who knows?
does your mom want another dog? This made ne think of her
