The name Jaeger means hunter, and Jaeger has been on the hunt for a brand-new life! A Black Lab somewhere around 10 to 12 years old, Jaeger has been through some very hard times. He and another senior Black Lab named Turbo were left to fend for themselves after their owner passed away in Wythe County, Virginia, on October 25th. Having not seen a veterinarian since 2009, both of these guys had been neglected and were in serious need of basic veterinary care. They had also been living in terrible conditions.
Fortunately for Jaeger and Turbo, Sarah Dutton with Lost Fantasy Rescue in Virginia was contacted about the dire plight of the dogs. On November 5th, black dog advocate Kathryn Haddock requested RADAR’s help. If we could assist with their vetting costs, the rescue would be able to intervene and have the family surrender both dogs directly to the rescue. Otherwise, they would go to the county shelter, and as older, black dogs, their chances of getting out of the shelter alive would be very slim. We agreed at once, and both dogs were safe with the rescue the same day!
With no immediate foster available, Jaeger and Turbo took up temporary boarding at the vet and received their long-overdue vet care. On November 17th they were able to be placed in a foster home. “Jaeger loves to play and run with my guys,” their foster mom, Amanda said. “He likes his chew toys. They both love to be near me and have taken to following me around the house!” To see more photos of Jaeger, click here.
RADAR paid all $154 of the initial vetting costs for Jaeger.
UPDATE! All funds for Jaeger have been raised! Thank you!
