Laying on the side of the road in nearly 40 degree heat. He was severly dehydrated, starving, covered in flies, infested with fleas, being eaten by meat ants & unable to move.
After a very appreciated drink of water we rushed this poor lifeless puppy to the nearest vet. He immediately went in for x-rays that revealed his broken hip. The vet treated him with a much needed pain relief injection, an anti-inflammatory, his flea infestation & conducted parvo testing.
Taylor is estimated to be no more than 5 months of age & requires around the clock care. He is unable to move, walk or even go to the toilet at this stage & will need to undergo hip surgery when he his stable.
We have so far covered the all the costs for little Taylor & will continue with his ongoing care. However, we need to raise enough funds to give Taylor the surgery he so desperately needs to give him the best shot at finding a loving family this little puppy deserves.
