McGoo is from the Humane Society in Eden, NC. http://rockinghamcountyhumanesociety.org/home
Last week McGoo escaped from his 10x10 run in the middle of the night and got rolled by a car. He is fine, but has some scrapes. My vet gave me some pills and a cream for his sores, and he will be fine. Unfortunately this has put us in a difficult situation. McGoo is too big for the indoor runs at the humane society, so he has to be outside, but he gets so frantic in the small runs he gets out. Right now he is staying with my elderly mother who has a big back yard with lots of bushes & trees, and he seems happy, but he keeps tripping her, and he can’t stay there anymore either.
I’m trying to keep him at mom’s house as long as possible, but if she keeps getting knocked over he’ll have to go back to the Humane Society and take his chances there, but I’ve taken him on as my personal project.
I am attaching some photos of this sweet boy. He really is about the sweetest dog you could ever meet. I will bring him up to PA or NY if I have to if that is what it takes to get him in a home that is ready to handle him. I’m afraid if he gets put back even in another small run he will get bored and find his way out looking for someone to play with. He might not be so lucky the next time he gets hit.
McGoo is a young adult (2-3), about 35 lbs, kind of short & long. Hound or lab mix. I am sending him to get neutered on September 6th, and he will also get his rabies shot. Gets along with everyone.
