Shep was brought into an emergency vet on May 23 because he and had a severe head tilt. He was diagnosed with Vestibular disease which usually effects senior dogs and can disappear in weeks or months, or may never resolve. There is no known cause.
Shep's owners could not afford the vet visit and asked that he be euthanized. We were called and we rescued him. Shep has been on 4 different medications since May 23 and is walking better and his head tilt has lessened a bit.

He had and still has double ear infections which are mostly antibiotic-resistant, so he's now getting medicated ear packs that we hope might clear help. Our Vet couldn't see his ear drum in one ear - infections have been there for years and are the reason for his vestibular disease.

We couldn't get his name and age from the first vet, so we guess he's 7 or 8 years old. He is Velcro, and will whine if he sees me and wants to be with me. He's nice to every person he meets. He is not neutered and won't be available for adoption until late July. Fostered in Grass Valley. This is a very sweet boy who is feeling better and playing with toys!

Rudy is a 3-4 year old Border Collie mix who was found in San Leandro with a broken chain around his neck. He's 56 pounds, loves to play fetch, is affectionate and will sit and hug you! His teeth are terribly worn, either from chewing on a tennis ball or his chain. He learns quickly and needs formal, positive method training classes. He's mostly good with other dogs, but will react to some male dogs. Rudy chases cats!
