Bobby is a 1.5 year old Shepherd/Hound mix who wants nothing more than someone to cuddle him and give him plenty of exercise. He loves going on long walks and would make the perfect running/hiking companion for an active family. Bobby would do great in a home with someone who can provide him with plenty of mental and physical exercise to keep him busy.

Bobby is great with other dogs, and would love to find a canine sibling he can play with. Due to his energy level and size, he would do best in a home with children 12 and older. We do not know how Bobby is with cats.

Athena is a beautiful, very friendly 6-year- old German Shepherd who is looking for someone who can accept her and help her through her medical condition. Athena is thought to have a congenital abnormality (or injury induced abnormality) causing Cauda Equina Syndrome, where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the nerves causing pain and fecal incontinence.

Athena has undergone several trips to Cornell University Hospital for Animals where she has had comprehensive blood panels, ultrasounds, physical examinations and neurology consultations.

Upon several trips to Cornell University the following conclusions have been determined: All tests have proved that there are NO detected abnormalities in Athena’s liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, kidneys and small/large intestines'.

Within the last year Athena has made a lot of progress with proper adjustments made to her prescribed food and medication dosage. She is currently taking Cisapride to improve GI motility and Gabapentin to help manage her pain. She is also on a prescribed food diet. Between the medication and prescription food diet Athena has had improved bowl movements in consistency and volume and her fecal incontinence has also shown signs of improvement.

I spoke to the Dr. at Cornell University who has been taking care of Athena for over a year and she believes that making proper adjustments in Athena’s therapy and increasing medication dosage will help to improve Athena’s condition. She needs a family that can understand that she has a neurological deficit and would be willing to spend a couple of hundred dollars a month on food and medicine as well as understand that Athena suffers from fecal incontinence.

Although Athena suffers with a medical condition it does not stop her from being extremely active and loving! Athena is a complete sweetheart and loves to play! She loves chasing her ball all around her foster dad's yard and she has a blasts bringing her foster dad all of her favorite toys.

Athena has a whole lot of love to give and wants nothing more than a family to accept her for who she is, snuggle her every day and play with her throughout the night.

Athena is not good with other dogs but she is great with cats.
