My story
FOCCAS is a foster home based rescue group in Coos Bay, Oregon. (on the Oregon Coast) None of these animals are located in the animal shelter; they are in our homes, being treated like our own pets. We show them for adoption on Saturdays 10-4 in Pony Village Mall in North Bend, Oregon. We are next to Sears, you can enter through the end by First Interstate Bank OR walk through Ross Dress for Less. We can make other arrangements to see the pet, depending on the situation and foster homes..............APROX birthdate is: 9/1/2008 weight 18#'s. His adoption fee is $150.00 The adoption fee includes neuter, da2pp vaccine(s), bordetella vaccine(s), rabies vaccine, dewormed, flea treated, 24PetWatch microchip with registration, free 30 day Shelter Care pet insurance, free vet wellness checkup with a choice of 11 veterinarians, Coos County Dog License, doggy goody bag, leash and collar...ADDITIONAL MEDICAL...Total Health Plus bloodwork, dental (6 extractions) anal glands expressed, nails trimmed...he has typical old man warts.He lost his family for their health reasons. They could no longer care for him. He lived with another dog. He and the other dog were alone for a few weeks but someone would come by and feed them and made sure they had water but they had been left alone. The person who surrendered him did not have much information. We have more from the foster home. ....He seems housebroken and has used potty pads in the past but if he can go outside her will. For the first 5 days he just paced and paced and circled and circled until he wore himself out and then would collapse on the floor for a short nap and then start again. After his dental he did start acting better, like he was feeling better. He is in a home with lots of activity, including toddlers. We are hoping with time, the sooner the better, he will calm down and find his own retirement home. Maybe someone getting up to comfort him or if he is sleeping in the bed with his new family he might feel more secure. NOTES FROM THE FOSTER HOME.... Peppy loves morning leash walks. He's good for 2 or 3 blocks. You'll need to be diligent in looking out for his safety, as his vision and hearing are both impaired. Peppy loves to be near someone at all times. He will bark to go outside. He will bark for food. He will bark for attention. He will back when a door is closed. He will bark when left alone for more than a naps worth of time. Once his needs are met, he stops barking. Peppy loves to be scratched under his chin, and around his ears. Peppy hates to have his feet touched. Peppy needs semi frequent reassuring that he's safe where he is. He can work himself to quite anxiety, if he doesn't get the reassurance he needs. This has lessened greatly since he's been in his foster home, so with time, it may disappear altogether. His hearing and vision are both impaired, but he does hear and see, sometimes that's all he needs, is to be able to see you, and know he's not all alone. He's indifferent to other animals. Therefore, you'll need to keep him safe during introductions, as he has to get right up in their face before he actually sees them. He has never shown aggression at a child, cat or dog while in his foster home. Peppy loves chewy bones. He sleeps well at night, if his bed is close to yours. Peppy likes to be up on the furniture, preferably right beside a person. Peppy has a bit of a hard time on tile or laminate flooring. Preferably carpeting is best for him. Peppy eats dry kibble, but occasionally shows a bit of interest in canned, and treat from your plate. Peppy needs frequent reassurance. He is a lovely old fella, once his needs are met.
