Garrick is a 10-year-old shar-pei/lab mix who really knows how to make you fall in love with him. He lost his family when they lost their home but it is very obvious that he was loved very much during his time with them. He went from being an only dog to sharing his Final Refuge home with 6 other dogs and 4 cats. He spends the day wagging his tail, roaming his property and reminding his new foster family (with lots of kisses) that he is very happy to be home again. His skin issues have improved tremendously with good care and he is shiny and healthy-looking now.
Sadly, Garrick has a sub-lumbar mass that has metastasized to his heart but he has shown us that life is good and he is going to live it to the fullest. We don’t know how long Garrick will decide to stay with us but we do know that we are going to make every day a great day for this very special gentleman…we love this guy!
Update From his ODH family:
Garrick was only with us for a few short months but his memory will last a lifetime. He could no longer fight the horrible cancer that was invading his body and we were blessed to hold him for one last time. Once he stepped into the Old Dog Haven his happily-ever-after began. Our broken hearts are a testament to the beauty of these purest of souls. I could not imagine my life without any of these angels that have spent the last part of their lives with us.
