An Update on Elvis the Adopted Dog!

21 November 2013

New Mom, Sara provided an update and more photos of the beloved shelter dog, Elvis. If you missed the story of how Elvis was adopted and became a member of Sara’s family, click here to read! (I just LOVE Elvis’ eyes!). This wonderful dog’s life was saved because of the volunteers and shelter staff at Mineral Wells Animal Shelter working together to create awareness for their shelter pets – and the power of social media! Be sure and like the shelter page!

“Just an update on Elvis. He went to the vet yesterday because I noticed he was coughing badly every day since we brought him home. He has bronchitis, an ear infection in both ears, a skin condition, and hip dysplasia. Also they found that he has a bad tooth that needs to be extracted. Poor baby. He is now on antibiotics, cough medicine, ear medicine and medicated shampoo. He will go back in 2 weeks for a follow up. Hopefully he will be all better then and can be neutered. Otherwise Elvis has a wonderful personality. He is a cuddle bug and very smart.” – Sara

It’s so wonderful to see adopted pets out of the shelter and into their new homes; pets are family! Thanks for the update, Sara! Be well, dear Elvis!

  1. Thanks Sara for giving Elvis a home. Bummer to hear about all his infections and so forth but happy he is being well cared for. He stole many hearts and I for one am glad he is “home for the holidays”. So glad “Elvis has left the building”.

  2. Thank you is not strong enough words for what you have done! You and yours are just as special as Elvis! He looks so precious and loved. Praying for nothing but happiness and health for all of you!!!♥

  3. Very nice feel good story about someone going out of their way to make a dogs life a good one. Well Done Sara, thank you for caring and thank you more for doing something about it. <3
