Monkey came into the shelter in rough shape. One look at him and it was clear he had spent the first part of his young life deprived of medical care and – kindness. He was suffering from a severe case of mange, his lymph nodes were swollen and he had secondary infections.
We took care of his medical needs and he soon became a happy and healthy dog. But after spending time with our fosters – we realized Monkey needed a very specialized forever home. He was fearful of young kids and spooked easily at different situations. Despite training and lots of socialization – he was what we consider a complicated dog. Finding the right home was going to be crucial and – difficult. Luckily – his dedicated foster moms decided they could provide the perfect home for home and – after a year of foresting him – he became part of their family.
