Meet Gailen: Adopted!

Date of birth: 4/2014

4/17/2016 UPDATE: Gailen is now in a foster home.

3/5/2016: Gailen is a super sweet and good-natured guy. We’re not sure what breed mix he is — we’re guessing maybe some American Bulldog and Pointer? We do know that Gailen’s a mellow guy, very loving, very friendly, and just a happy dog! He’s just about 2 years old and weighs 66 lbs. He’s good with most other dogs and has a submissive nature with people.

We transferred Gailen to our care from KCK Animal Control. He was in very bad shape when he arrived there. He was having intestinal issues, his coat was very sparse and his skin itchy and in bad shape. Gailen is doing MUCH better now and his coat and skin are looking really good.

Gailen’s intestinal issues are now mild. He’s been on a grain-free dog food and is currently on a very low dosage of Prednisone. We suspect he has allergies, coupled with not being well cared for or fed in his previous home, and stress from being in a shelter environment. We’ve done an ultrasound, esophagus test and blood work and all is normal.

We’d love to get this sweet guy into a home— either a forever home or a foster home. If you are interested in giving Gailen a chance we’d love to hear from you! If you have a dog, you could make an appointment to bring your dog in to meet Gailen. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms.


Please visit our web site at HSGKC.ORG for more information about our adoption process, our adoption fees and all that's included, and for a pet adoption application.

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our dogs & puppies have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas & ticks, tested for heartworms (7 mo. and over), and are on monthly heartworm preventative. Puppies who are too young to receive all the necessary puppy boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. You will also receive a leash, collar, coupons for pet supplies and services, toys, and educational materials. And we'll give your dog a bath before he or she goes home!

> Please note that we prefer and may require a fenced yard for many of our dogs. Exceptions are made on an individual basis depending on the dog's needs, the person's dog experience, the dog's and person's activity levels, home environment and other factors.

> An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. If you decide you'd like to adopt one of our dogs, we reserve the pet for you but we generally don't send the dog home with you that same day.

Thank you for searching for a shelter pet!
