Clifford is a beautiful Big Red Dog whose terribly sad story is ready for a happy new chapter. This 8 year old, 70 lb Red Fox Labrador mix was dragged in on a chain and dumped by his owner at a southern shelter with his mouth duct taped shut. This golden-red guy had clearly never experienced kindness, was terrified and in pain.
As part of our Save-A-Geezer program, we took Clifford in. We discovered he had a number of very treatable conditions – skin infections, hip dysplasia, heartworm, and arthritis. With supplements, antibiotics, gentle care and his heartworm treatment behind him, he has already transformed into a happier soul who greets new people with a cautiously optimistic tail wag.
During his treatment he has been boarding at our vet’s office, and he is a big favorite of the staff. One of them lovingly says Clifford’s wrinkly right ear makes him think of Nemo’s lucky fin. Clifford is excellent on leash and very food motivated to learn new skills.
Clifford is looking for a calm and patient adult home where he can enjoy his new favorite things for the rest of his life. His needs are simple; he loves a nice soft bed, quiet snoozes, a couple of walks a day and most of all, regular meals! Clifford is extremely fond of his toys, and loves to play fetch.
This Big Red Dog is looking for a big-hearted home who will continue his supplement regimen, and who will promise to give him a life full of peace and lots of treats.
