Stories like this always break our hearts and leave us to ponder why people would do things like this to an animal. Early February we were notified by one of our volunteers about a young GSD named Caesar who was brought to the Bayonne Animal Clinic by his owner. Caesar was covered in feces, malnourished, had open and untreated sores and when brought in, weighed only 37 pounds. The owner, who was a client of theirs, gave several excuses to explain his deplorable condition but it was obvious what was happening. It was at this point when the Bayonne Animal Clinic seized custody of Caesar to give him the initial care that he needed while finding a rescue to help find a loving home. That is when GSRNJ stepped in and he is now officially in our adoption program and in foster care!
During their rehabilitation of Caesar, he was found to have Addison's Disease which is currently being controlled with steroids which cost about $30-$40 a month. If in the future he stops responding to that treatment, he may need a shot which can cost about $150 a month.
GSRNJ is continuing with Caesar's rehabilitation and will not be available for adoption until he gets medical clearance. He is still underweight and needs to be neutered. This will also give us an opportunity to learn more about him and to make an appropriate match for his forever home.
What we can tell you is that Caesar is a very sweet and inquisitive boy who is learning how to be a dog. Its obvious that being in a home and playing with toys is new to him. He seemed to be non-reactive to other dogs while at the clinic. We are unsure of how he will be with cats.
