Adoption status

Gros (pronounced Grow) has got to be one of the happiest dogs we have.  And with such a sad start, we can’t explain why he is so forgiving.

Gros’ owners showed up one late afternoon at the house of a VRC employee, looking to dump Gros and his female companion (now named Kristi)  It was explained to them, that they could not give up their dogs at an employee’s house and needed to bring them to our facility on the following day.

Getting angry that we could not accommodate them, they simply drove down the road and threw both dogs out of their car in the middle of the summer in the middle of the swamp.  Talk about leaving these dogs to fend for themselves in one of the most dangerous environments on Earth!

Thankfully a good Samaritan spotted them and alerted us and we went and picked them up where we squeezed them in and began their medical treatment.

Gros ended up almost dying due to his severe heartworm condition.  Thanks to our amazing vets, they were able to pull him out of it and he is healthy and happy!

He is such a happy go lucky guy who loves other dogs, kids and cats. Currently Gros (sometimes called Hoss) is with a foster home and they say he PERFECTION!  He is a Plott Hound mix but thankfully doesn’t act like a hound…hahaha. Trust me, that’s a good thing!

If you’d like to bring a little Cajun fun into your life, this boy is the one!
