Dugan is a 9-10 month old Black German Shepherd. He is amazing, sleek, fast, playful, snuggly, great with kids and dogs, and also vision impaired. He came to us from a shelter that cared enough about him to look for a specialized rescue rather then releasing him to the general public. We are so thankful to them for taking such good care of him, and to Bill for helping bring him to GDU! Dugan is pretty versatile and would do well in a variety of home situations. While he is vision impaired, he does have some ability to see and only runs into something if he is going too fast and not paying attention to his other senses (don't we all?). Compared to human disabilities, vision impairment in a dog is no big deal and certainly won't prevent Dugan from a full and happy canine life. It's hard to call it a disability, though, when you see the dog run, play, and interact with other dogs in a perfectly normal manner. He rides well in a crate in the car and he's definitely dog-friendly. Dugan is being fostered in Troy VA.
If you have questions, or are interested in adding me to your family, please complete an adoption application, which can be found at the Green Dogs Unleashed website, under the forms tab. www.greendogsunleashed.org
PLEASE NOTE: Our first communication will be via email, so please keep an eye on both your inbox AND your spam folders. There will not be a phone call until later in the process.
GDU does ask a minimum adoption donation of 300.00. This is a minimum donation and does not cover all expenses as we are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum donation includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. The foster family may send along a small transitional bag of the food they have been on, and if they have grown particularly attached to a special toy, blanket, etc., they may send this as well. This minimum donation does not even begin to cover the actual expenses each animal has while in rescue, but does go directly towards vet care for our rescue animals.
