Too Old to be Wanted
April 4, 2007
I've Been Groomed!
We were recently
contacted by an out of State Clergyman who had just surrendered a
Scottie to a Shelter after the dog's owner had died.
No one in the family wanted "the old dog", and even the shelter was going to euthanize him because of his age and obvious skin issues.
Once we were notified of the dog's fate, we contacted another rescue group that we work with on an ongoing basis. They had contacts with this particular shelter and we were able to convince them to release the dog to us, in lieu of him being euthanized.
Driscoll was flown to Dallas on March 28th and was immediately taken to our Veterinarian.
His skin issues are due to flea dermatitis and are being treated with an antibiotic. He is also being fed several high quality meals each day, and is being given liquid vitamin supplements.
Both of Driscoll's eyes have cataracts. He is also suffering from glaucoma. It is doubtful that he sees at all, but we are scheduling an appointment with a Veterinary Ophthalmologist to see if there is anything they can do for him.
Driscoll also has an enlarged prostate. He is being scheduled for an Ultra Sound, to further evaluate this condition.
Although Driscoll is 13 years of age, we feel he deserves a chance. A chance for his remaining days to be healthy and full of love & happiness. He already has suffered the loss of the home he has known for all of his life. With your help, we're determined to make his remaining days as pleasant as possible.
Are you able to help Driscoll receive the medical care he so desperately needs? Do you believe he deserves a chance? Please help us, help him. We can't do it without you.
