Gino - Who Would Leave
This Sweet Dog Behind?!
Susan Daffron talks to Gail Montgomery from Almost Home Animal Rescue in Michigan about a six-year old Bichon Frise named Gino who is available for adoption. Gino was found wandering as a stray. His home had been foreclosed upon and his family left him behind. But a kindly neighbor brought Gino to Almost Home where they groomed this fuzzy little white dog and cleaned him up, so he looks like a Bichon again. In the process, they noticed that Gino's hair was thin and that he was constantly hungry and drank a lot of water. So they took Gino to the vet.
It turns out that Gino has Cushing's Disease, but fortunately it's the type of Cushing's that is treatable. Gino has been neutered and now gets a little pill in his food every day for his Cushing's. The medication is working well, Gino is feeling great, and the vet expects him to live a long life. Gino is one of those happy dogs who absolutely loves everybody: men, women, kids, cats, and other dogs are all just new friends for him. Right now, Gino is out of the shelter and doing well in his a foster home; he just needs a new family who will love him and let him love them back.
