Hi GSD folks!
I need your help! We have a wonderful, sweet and goofy german shepherd boy
here, he has what appears to be an old wound from an embedded collar that
is no longer there, and he is at great risk here with a supressed immune
system from his neck wound. If you can help, please let me know right
away! thanks!

Hershey- URGENT
Hershey (A05414159) is an incredibly sweet 2-3 year old unaltered male
German Shepherd that came in as a stray. Hershey came in to the shelter
with a half healed wound on his neck that our vets have determined is an
old embedded collar injury. The collar is gone, but he has a wound that is
healing, but his hair is shaved back and he needs to be on meds. Hershey
is dirty, and needs a grooming, and is starting to cough a bit from being
in the shelter environment. Hershey is sweet and friendly, he loves people
and is goofy with other dogs, like he is not used to socializing with
them. Photos at:

Re: PHILLY,PA-MALE-SUPRESSED IMM.SYSTEM DUE TO INJ

Second eval on this guy is coming this am (Sunday) He is in danger, because of his health, infection from neck wound etc. He probably will be one of the first to be PTS. First eval showed some initial cage aggression. He is sick and scared and but was able to be walked and petted with no problem. He relaxed and seemed to bond with male evaluator. Pooping yellow mustard color, neck wound stinks. Will post the second eval as soon as I have it.

GSR-SP has a foster for Hershey. He will be picked up early in the week and go immediately to the vet. I will post when he is out.

Cash is still there....I'll post a separate thread for him.....we MAY have a foster for him.
