Rubin is a great little guy with a big personality. He came to GRRAND with a shattered pelvis and a broken leg from being hit by a car. After a very extensive surgery, Rubin is on the mend!!! Even though he is still healing his foster parents feel that he is ready for his forever home. Rubin is always up for a walk or to settle down with a chew bone while you watch TV or read a book. He is food motivated and is very easy to train. He enjoys the company of other dogs, and cats. Rubin is crate trained, loves to ride in the car and getting pets from anyone he meets.
He is an all around GRREAT dog and he will make one lucky family very happy!!!
His recovery period of rest and no exercise will continue through July.
GRRAND was recently contacted about a Golden Retriever named Rubin that had been hit by a car. Rubin suffered a right femur fracture and a left pelvic fracture. His owner was unable to afford surgery and requested that the veterinarian put Rubin down.
Thankfully, the veterinarian’s office knew about GRRAND and reached out to us to help. We said yes immediately, and convinced Rubin’s owner to agree to surrender Rubin to GRRAND so he could receive the emergency medical care he desperately needed.
Rubin underwent orthopedic surgery on April 25, to install plates and screws to help his fractures heal properly. He is now being monitored and resting comfortably at Metropolitan Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Service. Rubin’s medical expenses for his surgery and post-operative care will exceed $5,000.
If your family could provide a safe and loving home for Rubin as he begins to heal, please contact GRRAND ASAP> Rubin is looking forward to starting a new life with a new forever family! Rubin’s activity must be restricted for at least two to three months during his recovery. He will only be permitted to walk on leash to use the bathroom. He will need a special family to help him through this post-operative period. Rubin is very sweet, and is good with other dogs and cats.
If you would like to donate to Rubin’s medical care, please visit GRRAND’s critical care page at http://grrand.org/critical-care-dogs/ to make an online donation. Checks can also be mailed to GRRAND, PO Box 6132, Louisville, KY 40206. Please write Rubin’s name in the memo line.
We will continue to update our supporters on Rubin’s status. We ask for your help now in sharing Rubin’s story so we can find a forever family for him ASAP! Thank you to everyone for your support!
