http://www.andymathis.com Jimmy is one of the dogs I rescued from Macon Animal Control during their Pardon Week back in November. I adopted him and took in 3 other dogs to foster. I hope this encourages people to consider adopting from a animal shelter or rescue group if they are thinking of opening their heart and home to a pet.
If you want to read about the 4 from the beginning, they were introduced on my blog here-
You’ll also find their photos in my flickr photostream- http://www.flickr.com/photos/andymathis
07/01/12- Update. I reported this on my own blog and Facebook page, but I see I didn’t update the video. A few days after this video was posted to Youtube, Jimmy developed very severe and unexpected complications from the heartworms he was being treated for. He seemed to be doing well on the outside, but had major issues with his heart and lungs according to his pathology report. When this was uploaded I totally expected him to be around another 10 years not realizing that he would only be here a few more days.
I decided to leave his video up. If it encourages someone to adopt, rescue, or foster a shelter pet, he would want that.
Please share the video if you have a second- it might help another pet in a similar situation.
