Cheyenne (2006), a golden retriever mix, was abaondoned with another dog, Bixby, when their family moved away. Other family members alerted the authorities to their sad situation. He had no vet care in his short life, but was neutered and updated on all vaccinations as well as heartworm-tested before adoption.
He was so well-behaved that he was allowed outdoors with no fenced yard. Cheyenne was happy, friendly and playful and maintained a sunny disposition in spite of his plight. Jones Co, like many smaller counties, had no animal shelter so all animals were taken to local vet clinics where they were held for 7 days to be claimed by their families.
