A few months ago a young German Shepherd was horribly abused and mutilated in Southern California. Some very sick person(s) had cut off his tail. Concerned people who saw him contacted the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC) for help. The dog, named Ajax, was saved and had to undergo emergency surgery. His vet bills were paid for by donations raised by the rescue and Ajax is now in foster care. Unfortunately, Ajax is still in need of a home. According to GSROC the dog is recovering but his foster mother had to work to get him to trust. When I inquired about his status I received the following message:
“Thanks Jacklyn. The most up to date info on him is on our website, on the Urgent page. He is in a foster home with 2 other GSDs. He was terrified of everything when we first got him – almost catatonic with fear. The foster mom takes him to training and he is now ok with other dogs. She is now working on his fear of people. He was badly abused, she couldn’t even put a collar on him. That has changed and I was able to pet him and interact with him when his updated photo was taken. He has come a long way.”
The rescue has been training Ajax while he has been in foster care to prepare him for his forever home. New pictures of him are now posted to the GSROC website which depict his ears standing up instead of down. Gradually, Ajax is becoming the German Shepherd he was meant to be thanks to the efforts of the GSROC. For more information on Ajax and how to adopt him please visit the GSROC website at www.gsroc.org. I want to be a billionaire so freaking bad … because I’d have a University lab use stem cells to recreate and attach a new tail onto Ajax.
