>>>IT’S TIME FOR CHANNEL 2’S PET PROJECT. GIZMO IS REALLY SPECIAL. I THINK A BIT MORE SPECIAL THAN SOME OF THE OTHER PUPPIES WE’VE HAD. ACTUALLY, GIZMO IS NOT A PUPPY, IS HE?>>RIGHT, HE’S NOT A PUPPY. HE’S SO TINY YOU OFTEN THINK HE MUST BE, YOU KNOW, UNDER A YEAR OLD. HE’S ACTUALLY ESTIMATED AT ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD.>>WE GOT HIM FROM THE PUPPY MILL THAT YOU GUYS WENT TO LOUISIANA TO GO RESCUE.>>ABOUT THREE AND A HALF TO FOUR HOURS EAST OF US. WE WERE CONTACTED BY AND ASKED TO HELP OUT. THEY WERE OVERWHELMED WITH THESE ANIMALS. THEIR HEALTH CONDITIONS WERE KIND OF VARYING FROM SOME MINOR ISSUES UP TO MAJOR THINGS, LIKE A LARGE TUMORS THAT NEEDED TO BE SURGICALLY REMOVED. SO WE’RE LUCKY THAT THE FIRST WAVE ARE READY TO GO FOR ADOPTION. OUT OF THE ABOUT 50, THE FIRST 20 ARE READY. THE OTHER ARE ON ANTIBIOTICS AND GOING THROUGH DIFFERENT MEDICAL PROCEDURES. BUT GIZMO AND THE OTHERS HAVE ALL HAD DENTALS BECAUSE THEY HAD EXTENSIVE DISEASE. THEY’VE HAD EYE MEDICATION FOR ULCERS. AND THEY’VE ALL BEEN SPAYED OR NEUTERED. SO THEY’RE READY TO FIND A FOREVER HOME.>>LET’S TALK ABOUT GIZMO HERE. HE IS — IN TERMS OF — WE DON’T KNOW WHAT HIS CONDITIONS WERE EARLIER OTHER THAN HE WAS ONE OF SEVERAL MALES USED TO HELP KEEP THE PUPPIES COMING.>>KEEP FEMALES PREGNANT. THAT WAS HIS JOB. SO WE’VE TAKEN CARE OF THAT PART. WE’VE NEUTERED HIM.>>YEAH.>>BUT DOGS FROM PUPPY MILLS CAN CAN BE ON THE SHY SIDE. SO WE RECOMMEND THAT OLDER KIDS OR NO KIDS IN THE HOME. SMALL KIDS CAN BE OVERWHELMING FOR THEY WILL STILL AT THIS — FOR THEM STILL AT THIS POINT. WORKING ON THINGS LIKE LEASH TRAINING, BECAUSE THESE ARE DOGS THAT HAVE NEVER EVEN SEEN A LEASH. AND THEN JUST BEING VERY PATIENT.>>RIGHT.>>HOUSE TRAINING CAN BE AN ISSUE WITH PUPPY MILL DOGS AS THEY’VE LIVED IN CABLES AND NOT BEEN IN A — CAGES AND NOT BEEN IN A HOME ENVIRONMENT.>>IT’S REALLY AN ACT OF LOVE.>>100%.>>BECAUSE THEY’VE HAD A LIFE WHERE NOW WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE THEM A LIFE THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD.>>RIGHT. I’D SAY IT’S AN ACT OF LOVE ON OUR PART BUT ALSO ON THEIR PART BECAUSE THEY APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH. AND THEY WILL GIVE YOU A LIFETIME OF LOVE AND DEVOTION, BECAUSE THEY CRAVE SOMEBODY TO PAY ATTENTION TO THEM AND GIVE THEM JUST A LITTLE BIT OF AFFECTION. THAT’S ALL HE WANT.>>GIZMO IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL AND SO CALM AND HE’S GOING TO FIND A HOME TODAY I’M SURE. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE CLEAR THE SHELTER EVENT.>>WE’RE EXCITED TO PARTNER WITH KPRC AGAIN AND THE LAST YEAR WE ADOPT OUT 94 THAT DAY.>>WOW.>>SO THIS YEAR WE WANT TO BE IN TRIPLE DIGITS.
