An Update on Simon, the Runway Dog

On the Runway Dog episode of Airport 24/7: Miami, the staff of Miami International Airport learned that a stray dog was living on the airfield. We are happy to report that Simon was safely caught, and he is now living in a new, loving home.

Ricardo brought him to Imperial Point Animal Hospital to be evaluated, where he was neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. They believe he is about 5-6 years old and a healthy shepherd mix. He had a dental exam and his teeth are in good shape, but he had a large hot spot on the left side of his face. He ate soft food and hard kibble, and he has been cautious, but not aggressive. He seems a bit untrusting of people.

Ricardo and Eduardo picked him up in a truck and took him to Ricardo's house. Ricardo is amazed by Simon's behavior, and it seems that he is adapting very well to his new life. Simon is still getting used to his new surroundings, but he seems happy and is behaving. Ricardo has another dog (a German shepherd) in the house, but Simon hasn't met him yet. Ricardo is waiting a little longer to introduce them to give Simon more time to get comfortable in his new home.
