Update 3/25/16: Hi, my name is Amos and I am waiting for my forever home. Now that I have put on weight and my fur has grown in I am a handsome dude. I am a loving little guy who just wishes to curl up next to you and be petted. I also enjoy lying in the sun and chasing bees, which my foster mom hates.
About this Pei :
I am Amos and recently moved from Alabama to Georgia when I was rescued from doggie jail by the nice people at Florida Shar Pei Rescue.
I had a rough time at the shelter and seeing the doctor was quite traumatic for me, too. I was so scared because I haven’t been feeling good for a little while now. The doctor said my heart and lungs sound good. He put me on some medicine and Heartguard to treat the worms in my heart. I have something called a bacterial skin infection and an urinary tract infection with bladder crystals. I guess that’s why my skin is so itchy and I have to pee so much. The doctor says I have to take medicine for 2 whole weeks to make these infections go away. My ears are infected, too, and, yep, I am on medicine for that, too. My foster mom says I am still very skinny and need to gain some weight but with all these pills I don’t know if there will be room for food in my belly, too. I need entropion surgery for my lower eyelids and something called neutering. Foster Mom says, “I think that he should be in much better shape in a couple weeks after good food and TLC. I am sure he was very stressed at the city pound.” Boy is she right about that! I am so glad to have been rescued by FSPR. After I get better I am going to be looking for my very own forever home. If you think that can be with you, please fill out an adoption application!
