Hey everyone, 

We are big animal lovers and Wealth Planning Group! We are excited to highlight one of our favorite animal friends each month! 

Our inaugural pet of the month is Rowdy Ward! 


Owner: Shelby Ward

Location: Aliso Viejo, CA (Currently in Iowa Falls, IA)

Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix

Rowdy had a rough start to life. His mother and siblings were rescued by The Little Red Dog rescue based out of San Clemente. At 2 weeks old he developed a horrible skin condition. His fur fell out and he developed scabs all over his body. The pads of his paws were so bad he learned how to walk on the tops of his paws. After months of treatment and movement from vet to vet, his incredible foster family found a specialist. He was finally diagnosed with Fish Scale Disease, or Ichthyosis. His foster family nursed this little bundle of joy back to health with medication and daily baths.

I met this incredible puppy totally by chance and adopted him on August 11, 2019. He was the addition that we didn’t know we needed. My other dog, Bubba, immediately took him under his wing and treated him like a little brother. They played, cuddled, and enjoyed long walks in Dana Point together. He fit in with all of the dogs within our family, including many foster puppies. He is definitely the class clown of the group! Rowdy flourished in training, and he recently became my personal certified service dog. He currently lives with my in my apartment in Iowa Falls, Iowa as I attend college continuing to be the best cuddle buddy and the biggest momma’s boy in the world.
