Gizmo is truly a special boy. He lived his first six years with a family, and toward the end of that time, he was hit by a car and had to have surgery to pin his hip. He got pretty sick and his family was unable to keep him. They did not contact his breeder, but they did contact Cardigan rescue. The family was going to take Giz to a shelter if rescue couldn't take him. By asking some questions, Cardigan rescue figured out who Gizmo's breeder was and contacted her. She coordinated Gizmo's transport and vet care. Because his breeder was so far away, I agreed to meet the family and keep Gizmo until he could be evaluated by the vet, and then arrange transport back to his breeder. Gizmo came to me a very smelly dog, with long nails, raw skin, severe anxiety, and terrible bowel disease. I offered to keep him for a while since I had the time to try and work on his health and anxiety issues. He and Kane really hit it off, and Kane's nurturing personality seemed to help Gizmo's anxiety. After a short time and one failed adoption to a wonderful family, it was evident that Gizmo needed Kane, and Gizmo joined our family. I'm happy to report that Gizmo has overcome all of his health problems, and his anxiety is almost completely manageable. I'm so proud of this silver-faced little man. He has blossomed into a silly old man since his arrival late in 2002. And don't let his innocent grin fool you, this dog is the master of finding trouble, especially if it involves food! Gizmo's keen nose and his never-ending quest for food made him a natural at tracking, and perhaps some day he'll be able to add a TD to his name.
