That's it for right now, but the plan is for me to foster a shelter dog. So currently we are all working together to pull this little guy from a shelter and get him to his temporary home (mine) so that I can fix him up before he finds his forever home.
So today we work on a transportation plan, and also I'm working on a veterinary plan.
In case you aren't familiar, introducing a new dog into a multiple animal household takes some planning and careful organization. When pulling from a shelter, you have NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE GETTING INTO. Especially since I personally am not pulling this dog from the shelter, I won't know until I pick him up from the person before me. Until I can get him assessed by a veterinarian, the dog will need to be isolated from my current pets to reduce exchange of any communicable germs/parasites between them.
I called the shelter on my lunch to gather a little more information. The dog was picked up on the interstate as a stray, is intact (hasn't been neutered yet) and the shelter does not do any type of 5 way before release, or flea treatment. Our first vet appt will be a fun one.
*Wait until he finds out he's gonna lose his little soldiers! :/
Plan is in action. The shelter dog will be pulled tomorrow and his journey to me will begin at 7 am Saturday. Just in time for me to get him to the vet before they close Saturday. :)
