*10 Year Old
*Japanese Chin possible mix
My name is Genji and I am an approximately 10 year old neutered male Chin or Chin mix. I was picked up as a stray in Colorado Springs on 5/17/21 and was in pretty rough shape. When I arrived at the shelter I only weighed 9.4 pounds. I was emaciated and had severe dental disease as well as a back full of spondylosis. I was transferred to CJCR on 5/21/21 in order to get the best care as well as the fact that the other dog's in the shelter frightened me. On 5/27/21, I had my overall health check up and am slowly starting to put on some much needed weight. I have no heart issues and should weigh about 12 to 13 pounds. I was given 10 days of antiobiotics to help with my severe dental infection. On 6/7/21, I had surgery and was neutered and unfortunately all of my remaining teeth needed to be extracted. I did great with the surgery and am recovering well. I will be looking for a home where there are no large dog's, since I am afraid of them as well as a home with no access to stairs. My back is full of spondylosis which makes stairs very difficult and dangerous for me. I am finishing my antibiotics from my surgery and will be ready for my forever home by 6/18/21. I am a very sweet and loving dog who loves people.
