Rescue pets: An unloved gentle giant
Rescue pets who save us too
We had just purchased our first home.
While my partner Evan had previously talked about getting a Dogue de Bordeaux, I wanted to open our hearts and home to a rescue dog.
We then came across our new family member, Tank, a purebreed Dogue de Bordeaux that needed a new, loving home.
He came to us not knowing the simplest of commands, scared of loud voices and raised arms, super skinny with a bad yeast infection in his ears, entropion, a lump and needing three canines removed.
We took him to training, spent over $2000 on vet treatments and have put him on a healthy raw diet.
He has gained approximately 10kg since being with us and approximately 30kg since being rescued.
Despite what he has been through, he is a loving gentle giant.
He does have some small issues which are not his fault and we are working through these.
Rescuing can be hard work, but I definitely recommend it.
