Eamon is a dog from a bad situation and is now looking forward to a new, happy life in RAGOM. Eamon is thought to be about three years old and weighing at his last vet visit 35.4 pounds. He is a beautiful golden color with a loving face. Eamon has many of the traits of puppy mill dogs and will have to learn many new things in the months ahead, with the help of the other foster dogs and a foster. He is a work in progress at this time, learning how to do his business outside, putting on some needed weight, building his immune system, and getting much-needed training.
He has been going outside very well with the other dogs now, and sometimes he will stop and go back the other way if a human is too close. It is surprising that they will go to a human in the house for pets, but afraid to go through a door if you are holding it.
He loves to run outside, which will help him to build up the muscle he needs. His other dog mentors have already engaged him in chase play. He is learning about treats and to play with toys and not destroy them. He is learning not to counter-surf for food and it will be provided at intervals for him. He is learning to meet people and ride in a kennel by going to the vet this last week to finish out shots and getting an exam. He came in with medicine for kennel cough, but my vet doesn't think that is his problem. He will also soon go in to be neutered.
Time will tell how things go with Eamon's recovery, so keep an eye out to see when he has progressed enough to be adopted.
I have included a picture of Eamon's first encounter with a cat. He was checking out my dog-savvy cat. He now gets along well with him, so I can say he is cat-friendly.
These dogs need a lot of attention and your generous donations to help them become family dogs, as it takes more time than other dogs and sometimes many vet visits, medications, and special food to get them fully recovered. I as a foster thank all those who donate to help these special dogs, and I am willing to donate my time to make your donations pay off. Contact RAGOM today with your donations for these 10 dogs that RAGOM so willingly rescued from a very bad situation.
