Default My first official rescue operation!

This morning after my doctors appointment I will be making a 4 hour drive to pull a senior boxer from a shelter for our beloved Cait. He'll be staying here in my home upstairs away from the brat pack for awhile but I'm excited to finally be doing something that makes a difference.
Meet Drako
My first official rescue operation!-imageuploadedbypg-free1354020122.562408.jpg
10 year old, neutered male weighing in at 75lbs

After the pull was confirmed last night I went up to the spare bedroom and did what I could to make it all his. He'll have easy access to the entire front yard and lots of room to roam on his own. I'm so happy we could do this one small thing to help an ole guy out. Makes me feel better that he isn't spending his last days in a shelter, alone and unwanted.

I'll update tonight when I get home or tomorrow morning at the latest. Fingers crossed my first rescue effort goes more smoothly than organizing it did.... That's a whole other story!

That is wonderful!! It's awesome that you are able to do that for the poor old guy. What's his story? How did he end up in a shelter? Keep us updated! I can live vicariously through you for now

Awesome work!! I have seen his picture on FB. If there's anyone that can help and guide you in the boxer rescue world, Cait is the man...well, woman!!
Congratulations! Can't wait to see pictures of his handsome ol' man in his new home.

Aww look at that silver face Does he have a permanent placement or are you fostering him until a perfect home can be found?

His owner was working a lot and leaving him outside where he would bark and bark. The neighbors called animal control and the owner surrendered him because she felt she couldn't care for him properly. Tracilee has kindly offered to foster the old guy for us while our Barkley's life comes to a close. We're guessing it will be a few weeks or so at the rate things have been going.

Thank you, Tracilee, for hanging in and putting up with the "drama" that is rescue. Glad to have you aboard!!

There's been a hiccup and Tracilee could use your prayers. She went in for a routine doctor appointment and she was sent to the emergency room. I've been in contact with Middle Tennessee Boxer Rescue and they're stepping in to help Drako. Tracilee is my first concern at this point. Please pray that it's nothing too serious and that she'll be okay. She said she'd call me with info when she knows more. I'll keep you all posted.
