I was contacted to pick him up and foster him by the breed specific rescue group I’ve volunteered with for the past 15 years. They only take French Bulldogs. The problem is, when I went to pick Toby up at the pound, it was obvious that he is a Pug/Frenchie mix.
So, now it’s just me rehabilitating him and trying to find him a home. He does have some health issues (and he is not neutered) that need immediate attention before I start looking for his forever home. Today’s comprehensive vet visit cost me $1,400.00 out of pocket for a dog I had known at that point for only an hour.
But that is just the beginning of this guy’s health care costs. So far, we know he is hypothyroid, which is no big deal. He has bloody urine from time to time that my vet believes are being caused by stones. He will need an ultrasound. If stones are present he will need surgery to have them removed. He also has a mass on his rump that we are waiting for the pathology report on. Hopefully it’s nothing, but if it’s something, that’ll be another cost. Plus, Toby still has his manhood. I need to have him neutered before I start looking for his forever home.
I’m so happy to be helping this little sweetie. I just wasn’t expecting the financial aspect as I thought my rescue group would cover all his vet costs.
Please help me get this guy healthy so I can find him the perfect forever home. He deserves it. All extra money that does not go to his vet care will be donated to other animal charities. Thank you.
You can follow his progress on my instagram: @bobocollective. Please feel free to share far and wide on any and all social media. The farther the word spreads about Toby, the faster I can get him healthy. The faster he gets healthy, the faster he finds his furever home.
Thank you so much,
Jenny and Toby ❤️
