Coy was adopted from us as a puppy in January 2022. In February the owner called wanting to surrender him. She’d just had a new baby and didn’t have time for him. We told her to bring him in 3 days later, but she never showed, calls and texts weren’t returned. We didn’t know what was going on.
May 1st we get a call about an emaciated abandoned dog with a chip that was registered to Coy. He was just skin and bones when we went to pick him up (50 miles from where the adopter lived). We took him to a vet right away and she graded him as a 1 on the body index scale. (5 is ideal). We immediately placed him in a foster home for some 1 on 1 attention. In addition to his malnutrition, Coy had a urinary tract infection that required antibiotics.
Coy has rebounded from everything but his urinary issues. He develops crystals that cause his problems. He was placed on a special diet that he will need to remain on for the foreseeable future. This does not stop Coy from living life to the fullest.
He loves the children in his foster home and can be found napping with them, or sharing a favorite toy. He
also gets along with the other dogs in the home and enjoys playing chase and tug-o-war. He is gentle and very loving.
Coy deserves a great home that will be his forever. He’s had it so tough and yet it hasn’t caused him to shy away from people. Please consider making Coy a part of your family.
Coy weighs 46 lbs, is fully vetted and heartworm negative. His only medical issue is the urinary crystal formation that requires a specific diet with no treats or table foods. If you can share your home with this wonderful dog, please apply. You won’t be sorry.
