Rita's Hunter...home sweet home

Rita's Hunter was adopted by Nicole and Ettore. Hunter found his way across the ocean with the help of Rita and MJ and landed at LAX with a couple of other country canines. He had allergies and was hyperthyroid. It took many tests and combinations of medicines by Rita and MJ to come up with the best solution for his itchiness and lethargy.

Following his arrival with the help of our welcome wagon at LAX, Hunter went to Culver Palms to stay for a bit until his foster, Benison, took him home. Benison was a first time foster but handled Hunter like a pro. His commitment to him was wonderful. Because one of Hunter's meds was prednisone, he was more thirsty than normal, which, led to having to relieve himself more frequently. Since Benison lived in a condo, it was very time consuming for them both, but Benison stuck with him, even after I offered to move him since I didn't think it was the best living situation for them both. Ben said that he would be there for Hunter until he found his new home.

Now that Hunter is home with Nicole and Ettore, he has his own backyard available to him whenever he wants and plays, plays, plays.

Thank you to Paul for doing Nicole and Ettore's home visit and to Nancy for helping them with their placement. Again, thank you to our staff at CP and our volunteer walkers. And, of course a shout out to Rita and MJ for helping this gentleman on the beginning of his journey.
