Another GSD in need from York County SC Animal Shelter:

IDA023015

Email from Shelter:

"It's the season for GSDs. I have one that is a neutered male about 6-7 months old. He has a problem standing up. The vet said that they don't know if it is neurological, spinal cord injury or what because they didn't x-ray it. She also said he didn't appear to be in any pain. He can stand briefly as I was back in kennel with him. He is very sweet and loving. If anyone can help me with him please contact me at 803-628-3190 or by email at [email protected]. <span style="color: #FF0000"> I have to have him out by Saturday at 12:30.
</span>Thank you

This week has been awful. I'm out of town at the canine rehabilitation course run by the Uni of Tennessee and whilst away had to deal with Duncan my Lab being diagnosed with a second type of Cancer, and had to have Niamh, the 21yr old I adopted 3 months ago euthanised after she suddenly decompensated and went into renal failure :-(

I am not looking to adopt another pup at the moment, but if one of the NC/SC GSD rescues would step up I'd be happy to foster and rehab this guy.

I'm so sorry you're going through all that Spiritsmam!

Something we've seen a fair amount in the shelters I work with is HBC dogs with a pelvic fracture. In that case, usually with some r&r they're all better. Hopefully it'll be something like that! I wonder how much it would be get an x-ray? It does sound like they at least have access to a vet clinic. I may try calling tomorrow to find out. Without more info it will be so hard for him to be rescued because you don't even know what kind of rescue you're reaching out for when it could be anything from regular healthy puppy with a minor injury to rehab home to special needs to hospice care. Usually those are different groups and different fosters.

Poor baby! He's just adorable.

Could he be just scared?
I rescued a couple of dogs that would not stand in the shelter, they were so scared. We had to carry them out of the building.
Gorgeous baby!

It is my understanding that the shelter has had offers to pay for an x-ray, but apparently they cannot do it. They took him to the vet on Saturday when he was picked up because he needed to be checked. I am told that Rescue will have to pull him and determine what needs to be done after that.

I'm too far, 4 hours away, and don't drive on Saturday because of the Jewish sabbath. We'd need someone to pull, someone to transport, and a rescue to sponsor. If we can get those things, we will take him. We've just finished a rehabber who is being transported on Saturday to Chicago and are getting a new foster, Buddy, the HW+ WGSD from a week ago.

Nope, I'm a GSD enthusiast with the French Bulldog Rescue Network! Working with New Beginnings on another dog but not an official volunteer with any SC GSD rescues yet. That will change soon, I am sure.

I will be more than happy to take the dog in. I am not taking him as a part of Noble but have fostered with them. If I take him he would be mine.
