Brady's Medical Fund

Brady (formerly listed as Grady by the shelter) is a 5 year old Miniature Schnauzer that New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network (NJSRN) rescued from the Brooklyn Animal Care Center (BACC). Poor Brady came in as a stray and he was very tense during his initial exam. He seemed to be experiencing discomfort and the shelter wanted him picked up asap so NJSRN stepped in and we had a foster home pick him up.

This little guy is incredibly sweet and reminds us so much of another sweet Mini we got into rescue a couple of years ago. For those that remember William, he came in neglected at 15 years of age and we had no idea that his life would end up going so well when he was adopted to a wonderful home in New Hampshire where he was able to spend the rest of his days surrounded by love.

Brady was abandoned by those who he would have known as his family, worse than what happened to William since Brady's "family" dumped him on the streets of Brooklyn in the dead of winter, not even bothering to take him to a shelter where he might at least be out of the elements and have food and water. What sort of person does this to a dog, especially one we would later find out was in extreme pain...

This is Brady's shelter picture.

Brady when he arrived at his foster home:

The night that Brady was picked up, his foster mom and dad noticed that he was increasingly uncomfortable and he was having a hard time urinating. In fact, all poor Brady was doing was squatting but nothing was coming out.

Within hours of getting him to their home, Brady’s belly was very hard and he started whimpering and throwing up. Foster mom Andrea and foster dad Richie rushed him to the hospital that same night and found out he had bladder stones. It was a good thing we were able to get him so quickly or else he would have been suffering alone in the shelter all night!

Brady after his vet visit:

The vet hoped to flush the stones so he could get some relief, but Xrays showed to stones in his shaft and a huge one in the bladder. So far, the vet was able to flush out the two stones in his shaft, but he will require surgery to remove the stones in his bladder due to its size (the ER vet said there are more in there!).

Brady as able to enjoy Christmas (here he is with a present from this foster parents) with minimal pain.

Now Brady is due for surgery and the costs are continually growing. We have an estimate of approximately $3,000 and this is not even the final bill. Won't you please share and donate?

We really want to find this sweet guy a home. At only 5 years old, he has his entire life ahead of him and after his surgery we hope that a wonderful family will adopt him and give him the love that he deserves. Please spread the word so we can give Brady that happy life. Can you say no to this sweet face?
