Trace
« on: May 28, 2012, 09:11:47 AM »
This has been such a sad weekend, I hate to add to it but we have a little guy that needs those loving BC vibes and prayers. Meet Trace...



Trace was found as a stray in western NC and was taken in by another rescue.  One of his back legs is badly broken and was never treated so although he is not in pain, he certainly has no use of the leg.  In getting him checked out as a prelude to amputating his leg, poor Trace was found to have a severe heart defect. The vets who have treated him says he has 4 to 6 months at the most to live...he is only 2 years old.  :bigcry:  The rescue put out the plea for help, looking for someone who might take in him and show him the love he has never known for the remainder of his short life...I know I have mentioned before that FSBR just has a huge soft spot for these kind of cases...and of course we stepped up and said we would take him...He is now with us and Briana says in just the few days she has had him, he has gone from being scared and shaking to loving everyone and everything around him...His heart may be broken but his adorable Boxer spirit isn't and we intend to give him the life he so deserves for whatever time he has left...I am so proud to be associated with FSBR...we are the little rescue with the great big heart. Please help us show Trace the kind of life he deserves by keeping him in your hearts and prayers and sending all the "happy Life" vibes you can send him...Thanks!

I've seen the posts on FB and cry everytime I think about him. I sure am sending those vibes for that sweet little boy. I'd like to kick those people in the throat a few times! Makes me so sad to think people are that cruel.

Hang in there buddy! :fingerscrossed:

Poor baby. :'(  Thank goodness that you found him, so that he can be happy, and loved for whatever time he has left.

It just kills me that someone would dump such a handsome boy.  Every animal, whether old, young, dying or healthy, deserves to have a loving home until the end.  It doesn't matter if they live for 10 hours, days, months, or years, every dog deserves better than the hand Trace has been delt by his previous owners  :veryangry:

It's so wondrful for Briana to take this beautiful boy in.

What is even better is that next week Trace is going to a new foster home...the parents of one of our other volunteers.  These folks have worked with a GSD rescue in the past but this is their first foster with FSBR and they are taking him in knowing he is gong to die...knowing that in a few months they will have their heart shattered...this just touches my heart more than I can ever say... :bigcry:

Deb, that's great news! It just shows that there really are more good people in the world.  I hope that Trace fills their life with lots of happiness, and them his.

They do know they'll never go back to GSD's, right  ;)

It happened to me! German Shepherds were always my breed of choice. But then, this little 'wiggle butt' entered my life, and now there's no going back! I think they have some magical power over us!  ;)

Came in late on this one but I am so happy that te poor little guy will know love for the rest of his short life.  I am so sad that his life is going to be so short but so happy he will know what it is like to be loved. :smitten:
