Meet Gary

RMGDRI Special Needs Foster

Please Sponsor Gary

Gary is 9 week old black male Dane. He is a sweet guy who kind of got the short end of the stick health-wise.

Gary has  Angular Limb Deformity of his front legs and is currently waiting to be seen by our vets. His first appointment is set for September 16th. He is starting swimming this week to get his strength up and get him use to being in the water.  This is where most of his therapy will be.  

It is likely that he will need surgery on both of his front legs, his right leg being worse than the left.  This is the  same bone issue that Tiny (2017-2019) suffered, but since it was diagnosed early, we have high hopes that he will be able to lead a normal life. 

Once we find out what he is dealing with, we will have a better idea how to treat it. We will keep everyone updated on this page, so you can follow his progress,and send good vibes his way.

We have already started fundraising for his care. Since we don’t currently know how soon we will be able to resume our fundraising events, we are counting on everyone to spread the word and make donations online for his care.  

Please help us fund his care!  Even a small amount can be huge on getting him the care he needs.

 

 

 

 

 

9-8-2020 – Gary goes camping!   Gary got to go camping with his foster family for the holiday weekend.  He had a great time and wanted to  shout out a thank you to everyone who has donated to his Sponsor Gary fund!

Camping is FUN!

I got a new jacket to keep me warm!

Makes me look handsome dont you think?

9-10-2020 – Gary goes Swimming!   Gary had his first swimming lesson.  He will need to be comfortable in the water for his therapy once he has surgery, so no better time than now to get him used to it.  

9-10-2020 -Oh, I found out my foster brother makes the BEST dog bed ever.  What do you think?  He looks like a bed, so no one would ever know that I was not lying on a bed, but my wonderful foster brother.  

9-11-2020 – I went to the vet today to get my next round of vaccinations.  I was brave and everyone loved me.  (How could they not???) I’ll have to come back in 4 weeks for some more and let them see how BIG I am getting…..

Thank you all for your support in helping us care for all of Gary’s needs.
