Here is Ramsey’s story

Meet 10 year old Jumbo!!! He’s one of the six dogs moving north to Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary in Canada this weekend and we just picked him up!
95 pound Jumbo is a smooth-coat collie (mix) who is intelligent, goofy, gentle and in need of a good grooming. He was originally found as a stray in Atlanta and now he can’t wait to start this new northern adventure and find his Good Life for his golden years.
“Come on, let’s go!!” says Jumbo!

And a recent update

Remember heartworm positive , senior dog Ramsey (fka Jumbo)? He was a stray dog at a train station who landed in a city shelter in Georgia. He then moved to Canada, was adopted by Kaitlyn a couple of months ago and has been thriving ever since!
Kaitlyn brought 8 year old Ramsey home knowing that he had tested positive for heartworm and that he would require special care. This week Ramsey started his treatment under vet supervision and we are so happy to report he has successfully made it through round one!! Two more sessions for big boy Ramsey, and with the care of his amazing family we know he is going to do just great!13051656_615606828595957_4600610448608493571_n
Kaitlyn wrote, “Ramsey seems much more himself today. He’s more energetic (although, as always, still laid back) and he’s eating well. He’s only allowed short pee breaks, and he needs them often, but we went out and enjoyed some sunshine today. I love seeing his face when he smells the breeze.
The day at the vet’s slowed him down, and I think the pills really affect him so the double dose of injections in 30 days will be a trial. But the end is in sight!
Also – he hasn’t lost weight like I thought, he’s stayed about the same. But the vet said that’s good considering the prednisone can make him gain weight. That’s the best we can ask for at the moment!”
