Grover and his pal Elmo came from a severe hoarding case, where neither of them had any positive human contact. They were both very shut down, afraid and defensive – they didn’t know any other way to be.
While at the vet, Grover was given the intake exam and diagnosed with a serious case of kennel cough, so he was isolated from other pups for ten days and given meds to treat the condition. Kennel cough often has symptoms of a loud, “honking-sounding” cough, difficulty breathing or wheezing, and an overall depressed mood with a lack of appetite. It’s a treatable condition with medication and bedrest for the pup.
Grover is in a foster home, learning what love, kindness and affection are. He’s coming out of his shell and also playing with other dogs now that his cough is gone. He’s making leaps and bounds of progress and is ready for his forever home.
