Flash - Available for Adoption
Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer
Age: 3 yrs old
Vaccinations: Up to date
Microchip: AKC Reunite
Cats: Not tested
SPECIAL NEEDS: Addison's Disease
Flash requires a small daily dose of oral prednisone (0.75mg) and percorten every 28 days via SubQ injection (1.0ml) and we are reducing his percorten. He will need his electrolytes tested about every 3-6 month once he is stabilized on percorten. Yearly vaccinations need to be given individually rather than in combo. We will require extensive discussions with adopters veterinarian to ensure proper care and keeping up with latest treatment protocols. WGSPR will also be following up with adoptive family on a more frequent basis and we require the adopters to join CARE - an Addison Dog Support group. More information on Addison's Disease can be found at: https://canineaddisons.org/
Greeting from Camp Wilderness:
My name is Flash, the Dash or a least that is what my foster mom keeps calling me. She is always telling me that I am quick to run after birds in the yard, after any ball or toys that are in play and pick up on any conversation that might be about my foster brothers that really doesn’t concern me. My foster mom says I am so smart, but really stubborn. I am not sure what she means by that.
She tends to get mad at me when I get up on the counters in the kitchen, but I can’t help it the smells are so good. I eat all they give me, and I try to get into the food bin but they have it locked for some reason. I love ice cubes, I gotta have one every time someone gets one out of the place they come from, one of these days I think I might be able to get it myself.
I love all the pillows they have to sleep on, and they let me sleep on the couches to snuggle with them when they are watching TV but they also let me sleep there at night. I do still not understand this getting on the bed and staying on the bed; there is just so much going on that I got to go check on things quick, then come back. The foster parents aren’t keen on up and down, this getting permission thing is rougher than I thought.
I love going outside, there are so many birds, and my foster mom has to remember to put a special collar on me so I remember to stay in the yard. It is not like I forget where I live, I just don’t like to stay in the yard when chasing the birds they fly all over the place and I like to go with them. The sun is so nice I would lay in it all day if it wasn’t for the birds flying over me.
My foster mom taught me how to play Chuckit, now I can bring it back and let go with out smushing it too much, I like smushing it, it is so much fun. I also like kick ball, but I still have a difficult time sharing the balls with my foster brothers. I like to steal them; my foster mom calls me a ball bully. My foster dad thinks that I didn’t socialize with many other dogs or people, so I am still figuring it out. I like tussling with my foster brother Max, he is fun. He teases me running away with the kick ball, and not taking it back to our foster mom so she can kick it again.
There were times when I first got to this new place when I didn’t feel so good and my foster parents took me to the vet so much, but they have been taking real good care of me and I have been feeling so much better. I have a ton more energy and my foster mother says she thinks I am getting “crafty”, I don’t know what that means, but I am having so much fun when we go on walks around the campground and go for rides in the truck. I love meeting new people, but I like to bark at them when they come to my house just to let them know it was my house first. I am protective of my people they have been taking really good care of me and love me often. I am sure there will be more to tell you later, but I think I want to nap now. Sleepy from Camp Wildness!
