Elvis has quite an interesting and convoluted past, every owner mistake that could be made was perpetrated on this little guy until he finally found his safe place with GEBR.
He had been treated for a myriad of medical issues due to neglect after he came to us, including bladder stones and dry eye.
By the time we got him put back together again he was a little older and didn’t garner the interest of the younger or healthier dogs in our program. We never lost hope that one …special family would come along and make him their prince….because he was a prince! Until that time he was content to live in love with his foster mom, whom he considered his “real” mom, Hannah. With Hannah he found security, safety, cuddles and true love.
Elvis was diagnosed with heart failure earlier this week and began treatment. He took a serious turn for the worst yesterday afternoon. Despite a frantic race to the emergency vet, Elvis passed.
Our hearts are broken over the loss of this beautiful boy and our thoughts and prayers go out to his mom Hannah who filled him with love during his time with GEBR.
