Meet Buster! Buster is a 4-year-old Lhasa Apso mix. Buster was a stray that went into someone’s yard and their dogs attacked him. Buster was taken to the ER and was treated this past January. He was seriously wounded, but Deb nursed him back to health. He also had an untreated eye injury at the time. The eye was removed, he was neutered, and he’s now a very healthy, happy dog. Buster would be best placed in an adult-only home. He’s fine with other dogs.
Deb’s Dogs is a non profit 501-c-3 organization that depends on donations and adoption fees to fund animals’ vet care. Most of the dogs that come into their care come from The Allen County Dog Warden Facility. Usually the dogs they take from the shelter are the ones that need extra attention. The animals may have been neglected, abused or injured. Once they take the dogs they go to the vet for a complete checkup. If they are healthy enough at this time, they are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Sometimes Deb’s Dog’s has to wait awhile for this due to the condition of the animal. Deb’s Dogs works with Oakwood Correctional Facility and their dog harbor program. This is an excellent training program where an inmate takes a dog for a period of time and works with the animal on basic commands, house training and socialization. It is a great experience for the dog and the inmate. They learn from each other and the inmates take a lot of time and effort with these dogs.. Since Deb’s Dog’s does not have a facility, this program is an important part of their rescue efforts.
