Albert Feeling Better

Albert is playing, running and acting very goofy! He and Nala play well together and run side by side WIDE OPEN. I am keeping Roggy and he separated as much as possible. I make sure I have Albert on a very short leash when we are all going in and out. In the house I pretty much stay between them all the time. With the busy season coming it looks like I am going to need a chain link kennel for Albert. He can be with me allot but not with Roggy at work so we need a safe place for him to to be. I hope to find him a new place to stay or live so he does not have to be left home alone.
All the dogs are feeling better and the coughing is finally going away. Still lots of sneezing going on. ICK.

Albert and Rogger Not Budddies

Albert and Rogger decided not to get along today. Albert will be needing a new home sooner that I wanted. The best would be a home with female dogs or submissive males. Rogger is not submissive...He minds very well thank goodness. Albert gets along with my cat and my female Dane very well. Albert minds very well, rides in the car perfectly but can not be left home alone uncrated. He has a bit of separation anxiety. This may pass with time and training.
Can you foster Albert?
Can you give Albert a forever home?
Call or e-mail Sarah

Day 6

So have you ever tried on everything you own to find out nothing fits. And then you throw a fit.
Well it happened. All of my clean cloths thrown on the floor. Albert loved it. Needless to say they are no longer clean.
Albert had a good day. His swelling around his incision is getting better. He is still eating well.
He is still coughing and sneezing and now my baby Roggy is coughing also. Dang it!
I think we go to the vet Monday. Still waiting for a final call.

Day 5

Day 5
Albert made it through the night. I checked on him all night long. He ate well this morning and is out wandering in his new 1/2 acre yard.
Today is starting out to be a good day.
As you can see, Alberts inner eyelids are hindering his sight. We will deal with his eyelids once he is strong and healthy.

Day 2

103 pounds.

A jump ahead...I am starting this blog a few days after getting Albert. I will move the post when and if I figure out how. Today is Thursday.
Albert had a good day. Other than I tried to leave him alone for 2 hours in the house....He tore the door apart along with the doorknob. He was to active for a freshly neutered guy. But tonight he is bleeding. Droplets. But bleeding. He is shaking all over. All 4 legs, his entire body. He has been draining from day one but today I see blood. The incision looks good with a small opening at the rear. I wish the vet would call me back! If not by AM(Friday) I will call Duluth to my vet and take him next week. ASAP

Day 1

Here is Albert the first day I brought him home. As bad as this looks, his colors hide the worst of it in pictures. His back legs look weak while actually, all of his legs are weak.

Albert 103 pounds.

Albert rode home in a 4 door pickup with a 140 pound Rottweiler and a 110 pound Dane. Oh and me and never complained once. Our first stop was McDonald's....150 miles 6 hours with stops. He hung his head out the window the entire time. He saw his first moose that day. When we finally got home. I fed the dogs. I assumed we may be up in the night with loose stools from Albert. McDonald's, new food, new environment car ride ect. Albert went up the stairs to our bedroom, laid on his new doggie bed at 9:30 pm. Albert slept all through the night. I woke him up at 9:00 am the next day. He was very happy to go out but boy is this guy housetrained!

Ok so I was worried about bringing a new dog home. I have a few, and a cat. Albert gets along with EVERYBODY!

Albert Starts Over

This is the story of Albert. A senior brindle Great Dane that was dumped at an animal shelter. Thanks to the great folks at the shelter, a breed rescue group was called. They called me. I went to see Albert to find out if he got along with other dogs. When I saw him, found out he was not dog aggressive. I put him in my truck with my Rottweiler and Great Dane and brought him home. Albert had been neglected. Albert had been neglected and as a result starved.

If Albert survives all of his troubles . We will be looking for a forever home for him.

This is the story of Albert...."Fat Albert"
