Update: Chief is Ready For a Foster Home


Day 1 at Balch Springs Animal Shelter

You remember Chief, right?

He was the Shepherd/Shar Pei mix (our best guess based on those ears) who was taken to the Balch Springs Animal Shelter by a Good Samaritan.  She found him with a large infection on the side of his face/neck.  (Click here for 1st Blog Story)

As the medical team did more research on this wound, it was revealed that Chief had been shot in the face.  X-rays revealed fragments of his teeth and the bullet were in his face and neck were causing this infection.
The Balch Springs Shelter, with the assistance of others who wanted to help this boy raised funds to cover the needed surgery.  
He has had surgery to remove teeth and bullet fragments.  He has been neutered and is up to date on all of his shots.  His Freedom Ride occurred on February 4th as he was transported to Take Me Home Pet Rescue for temperament evaluation and rest after his surgeries.
Feb. 4th – Freedom Ride

A week has passed and Chief is ready for his next ride —– A ride to a loving foster home or better yet, a foster to adopt home.  

Feb 11th – Play Time at TMHPR

Chief has proven that he holds no grudge against mankind.  He is a happy dog who simply wants attention and love.  He loves playing with his toys and the many volunteers who have been taking care of him during his journey.

He walks well on a leash and his tail never stops wagging.  Seriously, not even for the photo could he keep that tail still.
