Rin Tin Tin

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age: 9 years
Gender: Male

I am 80 lbs, great with other dogs & love people! 

I will be available for adoption on October 23rd. I cannot have any visitors before October 23rd. You will need to fill out an online application and receive a phone call back from a staff member that everything is ok with the application prior to October 23rd. All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption.

Adoption donation: $400

All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Tri Heart Plus & Vectra 3D.

My situation has changed since I went to the vet and need to go back for X-rays after a 2 week course of antibiotics so I will not be available on the 12th anymore.  

(As with all living beings, things can change from day to day so we decided we needed to push Rin Tin Tin’s adoption date back until his 2nd vet visit is completed to make sure we can give adopter’s as much information as possible and that Rin Tin Tin gets all of the medical care he needs.)

Rin Tin Tin was rescued by AHS just recently and it was apparent immediately that one of his back feet was extremely swollen and one toenail was missing.  We didn’t get any information on his history or what happened to him so we set up an appointment with our veterinarian.  Our vet found that not only the toenail was missing but part of the bone for that toe, abnormal pelvis structure and bones in the tail are abnormal as well.  Right now we are soaking his foot twice daily in Epsom Salts along with antibiotics, pain medication and medicine to help with diarrhea.  Please give the shelter a call with any questions.  In the meantime, we will continue to care for Rin Tin Tin until he can go back for his recheck & X-rays sometime during the week of Oct 16th which is when we will have more information on his situation and possible treatment.
