A diamond in the ruff!

Hey there! My name is Artemis and thank you for looking past my ruffness. I am a 5 year old smol boy at 25 lbs, male neutered Shepherd mix. I was rescued from TJ where I had it pretty rough. I had a fractured jaw, hip, and ribs and toe bones fused together. At-Choo rescued me with TAP at the right time too, as a TVT survivor with Vasculitis, mostly in remission. These are all my meds, dont worry I am very good about it! Pentoxifylline ~$18.00 for 2 month’s supply, Free-Form Snip Tips ~$17.00 for 2 months supply,, Doxycycline ~$20.00 for a months supply, Douxo S3 Pyo Shampoo ~$23.00 a bottle, MicroSpore lotion ~$20.00 a bottle, Gabapentin ~$14.00 for a months supply,. For Eyes: Optimmune ~$50.00 a tube, ~$12.00 a tube, Optixcare Eye Lube Plus ~$12.00 a tube. All prices depend on where purchased and market value. Phew! All done!

I am an extremely good boy and fully bathroom and leash trained. These days I am leashed when alone at home because I have been naughty and getting into treat bags when foster fam leaves. But I make it up with my excitement when they come home and I even talk to them to tell how much I missed them! I am quite chill though and low energy at home. I am incredibly sweet and so full of affection! I am enjoying my daily walks even with trouble in back leg. Just livin’ it up! When back home, soft blankies and sunshine are my jam. I get along with small doggos well, big dogs make me anxious. I adore my foster sibling and follow the doggo, learning and building confidence. I am also good with kiddos who have come home!

I have been through so much and look a little rough but I am the sweetest thing. I would do good in a low level home with a backyard I can relax in. Stairs would get harder eventually due to previous injuries/ weight bearing in my back legs. Another small dog would be great company for me. I’d also do good with someone who enjoys relaxing outside and going on small daily walks. I may not be for hiking and an active lifestyle, but I am made for pausing and sniffing the flowers, sunbathe, watch the beach waves, you know, enjoy Sun Diego! I am however very easy to travel with, and still love to join. 

I can be adopted as TAP Medical Dog. My adoption fee is $300 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
