Posted @withrepost • @wnvcritterpics I'd like to preface this post by saying I wasn't even supposed to be dogging today!
I needed to run to the dump this morning before I left to pick up my kids in AZ. On my way out I saw a dog limping along. I noticed he was following a man. I asked the man if it was his dog he said yes but not really. This dogs old owner gave him the dog when their trailer burned. The man let me have the dog (named Cholo but I've renamed him Oso) and was so grateful I'd seek help for this sweet boy.
Oso has suffered a lot it seems. I've found many lumps that I am not sure what they are. I've found his head misshapen due to healing without treatment after being shredded. His feet and wrist joints are larger than they should be with likely infection and inflammation. He hurts like he's an old fella but he's young. He's a GOOD boy. He rode all the way to AZ and back with me and my small dog (who wasn't being very polite to Oso) and my 4 kids were fast friends with him. He met my cat and did fine. He's in a crate-finem. He's the most grateful sweet boy ever but he NEEDS vet care his joints and masses have me very worried for him.
I want to take him first thing in the morning. I expect he needs blood work and x-rays which will easily be 500.00 right off the bat. I'd like to raise at least that to get him started!
Please help me help this poor boy. He deserves a better more comfortable life than he's had.
