Grande Mocha

Here we have a gorgeous brindle boy with white socks, white bib and a splash on his neck. He has natural ears, a bobbed tail, is heartworm negative and weighs about 65 pounds.. Grande Mocha is just 5 years old.

Grande Mocha’s foster mom says: Grande came in from Rio Grande city in bad shape, walking on 3 of his legs. X-rays show that he had a fractured pelvis that had healed, but the femur that fits back into the pelvis did not set right causing him to be lame. He also has a pellet from a gun shot lodged in the bone. He was emaciated, covered in ticks and had worms. Grande Mocha is all cleaned up, happy to have regular meals, and happy to have 2 Boxer buddies, a family and a soft bed. He spent the weekend at a friends with cats and just ignored them.

This guy is resilient, and goofy, and affectionate. He’s a low key, low energy guy who loves pets and attention and a safe, soft spot to watch his world from. He is house and crate trained.

UPDATE 9/20/2018:  Life just keeps getting better for Grande Mocha every day. He has had surgery on his hip, and his prognosis is quite a bit more promising now. He had a hip replacement for dogs, a femoral head osteotomy. He will rehab slowly, cautiously with his foster mom for several months, but once he’s done you will never know he once had to limp. Thanks to ABR, and his loving foster mom, Grande Mocha will be fit as a fiddle for his forever family.

Update 12/6/18

Grande Mocha has healed remarkably well. He joined his foster mom on a long walk, over a mile, and did just fine. This one just has to make you smile.
