They say everything is bigger in Texas, and Red is no exception! Please welcome this handsome 42 pounder to FBRN. Red is estimated to be 3 years old and he’s already had 2 homes. He was surrendered due to allergies and rough play with his previous owner’s younger children. We’re happy to have the opportunity to help this big fella find a permanent home to hang his hat!

It looks like Red has cherry eye which will need to be evaluated at his initial vet visit. Red is obviously itchy on his back end. He rubs against whatever is handy enough (and sturdy enough!) to scratch himself. We’re confident that we can get Red’s skin issues under control and allow him to show-off his gorgeous red coat in all its glory! Allergy testing will likely be needed to determine the right treatment plan. Red hasn’t yet been altered and once he’s cleared for surgery, he will be neutered.

Red isn’t overweight, but he’s built like a little tank! Without having much skill in the manners department; it’s easy to see why Red wouldn’t be a good fit for a home with younger children! Red rides well in the car and seems to love being with people. He hasn’t been introduced to other pets yet, but we’ll have more to report on that when Red is ready to move over to the Available page.

If you have anything to spare, please consider donating to Red. Any amount will help with the cost of his upcoming vet visits…and the cost of the dinosaur-sized Nylabones this big fella is going to require! Just click on the banner above to become Red’s sponsor. We’d sure be grateful.
