NY, NY - Snoop, 8YO, allergies & thyroid, pts soon

The following is a crosspost and I have no further information. He is listed as a mix, but looks PB from the picture that was attached. If mods feel he is a mix please delete.

This note is from Foster Me! NYC:

Quote:
Quote: SNOOP!!!!!!! EXTREMELY URGENT: PLEASE CROSS POST TO ANY AND ALL ADOPTION SITES: SNOOP -- BIG, LOVABLE, GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX FACING DEATH UNLESS ADOPTIVE HOME CAN BE FOUND! Snoop is an 8-year-old (very large) German Shepherd who was rescued from euthanasia at the city pound in the summer of 2007 due to the dog then being in extremely poor condition. Snoop was abandoned to the pound by owners who complained that he "costs too much." He was suffering from untreated skin allergies and a thyroid condition. We placed Snoop in a foster home, brought him to the vet for medical attention and treated his illnesses. Due to the special and rich diet he is on, as well as a slow thyroid condition, Snoop gained a great deal of weight (he is now 163 lbs). However, he is an active, enthusiastic, and otherwise healthy (neutered) dog. Snoop is GREAT with other dogs and even cats! He is housebroken and very devoted to the people taking care of him. He loves walks, rides in the car and getting "baths" with a hose! Despite this big mushy dog's better qualities, Snoop unfortunately has failed to find an adoptive home, despite being advertised on numerous adoption sites and through other means for almost a year. Snoop has a new problem now: His foster people are moving out of the country shortly and Snoop has NO PLACE to go! Snoop needs a home with some space to run and people who can appreciate this fine Shepherd's normal tendencies to protect hearth, home and food. Snoop is a little reserved around new people, but quickly warms up when realizing someone's good intent and heart. He needs someone knowledgeable and experienced (Particularly with German Shepherds or other like breed). He is an extremely loving and loyal dog. Unfortunately, with time (and foster home) running out on Snoop and no offers for an adoptive home, we are now realizing that we may be forced to euthanize him, as Snoop would not do well in a boarding or cage situation. He needs to be around people. This would be a tragic waste of life considering all the investment of time, care, love and money that has gone into saving and properly caring for Snoop over almost a year's time. His foster people are heartbroken and frustrated, as is the rescue organization responsible for the rescue and medical care of Snoop. All the "care" in the world does not matter if ultimately no home can be found for the animal. We are now out of options. Is there anyone out there who can offer Snoop what he has waited more than 8 years for? A loving, responsible and committed adoptive home? Or, did we invest all this time, love and money only to ultimately have to put Snoop down? The clock and calendar wind down, as there is still no answer to this question. If you can help save Snoop from the dreaded needle, by offering the loving home he so desperately needs for so long, please CALL US IMMEDIATELY. (212) 427-8273. He is fast running out of time. Thank you.

Is he in a rescue-his foster home is going to be leaving and no one can take him? This is very sad.

Yes, from what I understand a rescue pulled him out of a high kill shelter almost a year ago. He has been with his foster family who is now moving out of the country, and the rescue has no other fosters available. From the e-mail, they will put him to sleep rather then putting him through the stress of going back to the shelter.

I can just see in his face that he wants to live. I hope someone can help.

Woah. That's not right. I'm sorry, flame me if you want, but the rescue has an obligation to care for him. They pulled him. It's their job to find a place for him. Suck it up and pay for boarding, but you can't just ditch a dog that you pulled. He's their responsibility. Argh.

I wish I could take him but I don't have any room. I'll ask around to see if anyone will take this gorgeous baby.

Doesn't sound like they treated his thyroid condition to me.....
