[update May 3] Tree Dog Needs a Good Home
Her rescuers called her Tree Dog for the first few days because she was found tied to a tree in front of the Garberville/Redway Veterinary clinic with a blanket and a little food. She had recently had a litter and was skittish. Heather Downing, who works there, explained, “We grew to love her and we knew she needed a real name. So now we call her Red since she was tied to a redwood tree.”
Tree Dog, Aka Red, is a handsome healthy dog now. But when she was first found in March, she was terrified. Downing said, “At first, she was terrified of us. Now she is kissing us…”
Downing said that after no one claimed Red, Doctor Roy Smith, the veterinarian, spayed her and gave her vaccinations to make sure she was ready to adopt. “We tested her with children, with other dogs,” Downing said. “She is great with kids…She gets along with dogs and cats. She’ll make someone a really good dog.”
“We estimate her age at about a year and know she has had a litter of puppies already,” Downing said. “If you’re interested in her, call or come by the office and meet her…She’ll make someone a really good dog.”
Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00. The Garberville Vet’s Office number is 707) 923-2023.
