I posted here once before about our two dogs here: (Two Adult males to a great home, please (Tri-state area, NY/NJ/CT)
We had since been able to find more a more favorable solution for both of them. The younger black GSD is in Brooklyn with my sister and we had been able to keep Damian, our older male. My wife went through rounds and rounds of allergy shots and was able to manage with just one dog in the house. As a matter of fact, we have one dog and two ragdoll cats in our apartment! They're all great friends. All had been well for the past 3 years, but now require even more urgent help.
My wife has been recently diagnosed with lymphoma and had just started her first round of chemotherapy. She came back to get her second treatment only to be told that her white blood cell count is too low to continue. She had been complaining that she was feeling the effects of her allergies more and more despite building up her tolerance. We were told that she was immune suppressed due to her first treatment and her allergies is not going to improve her ability to get that blood count high enough to proceed.
We are having some friends take the cats in the meantime but have not been able to find someone to help us with our dog. Her treatment may take up to 6 months, so we would need someone to potentially foster our dog during that time. He is 12 years old and it breaks my heart to displace him at this time but we're out of options now. If I can find someone local, I'm willing to provide the food for Damian until we can get him back. He's been stable on Canidae platinum and that's not the cheapest food, so I would like to provide lessen that burden on whoever can help us out. He's a healthy 12 year old that is still (suprisingly) energetic but do get the occasional arthritis that can only be remedied with doggy aspirin. He lives for fetch (I'm not kidding. Obsessed, if anything). He's got a clean bill of health, otherwise, and is up to date with shots. We board him in a doggy daycare when we go on vacation so he's passed all temperament and social tests.
We live in Ridgefield Park, NJ. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can provide more information. I'm also open to having a phone conversation to discuss but will not leave it on a thread post. Please email me.
Thank you very much for reading.
