***UPDATE***REX IS ON HIS WAY TO HIS FOSTER HOME***THANK YOU #TEAMCALWEAR!!!!!***
MEET REX, who is now searching for an adoptive home.
REX comes to CalWEAR after a brief stay at the San Diego County Bonita Shelter (Southern California).
Staff’s initial impression of REX was, “Wow, he’s a nice dog! Loved being talked to petted. Super social. Wagged his tail when getting attention. But also… walked into walls.”
As it turned out, REX is suspected to have some retinal degeneration. In other words, he can’t see.
Did he get lost? Is that how he ended up at the shelter?
Thankfully, REX was microchipped and a quick phone call was made to notify his owner that he was safe. No problem. Owner made an appointment to come get his boy.
Unfortunately, the appointment time came and went, and REX’S owner didn’t show up to collect him. Then the shelter was ghosted altogether.
REX was abandoned by his family. While we don’t know why, we suspect it’s because they are going through ruff times, themselves, and aren’t in a position to take him home.
So here’s where CalWEAR comes in.
REX needs our help. First and foremost, he needs a soft place to land. A temporary foster home where we can get him cleaned up and back in tip-top shape. Then, we’ll need to find him the BESTEST. HOME. EVER, because he deserves that, and so much more.
– With love and gratitude, Team CalWEAR
