Please Donate to help Bento

Donation protected
Bento is a year-and-a-half-old Australian Shepherd pup. He is an albino double merle; blind, deaf and epileptic.

He was living with a young man that could not find housing with him or care for him. His mother posted on the NextDoor app and a friend saw the post and decided to try to help Bento.

My friend introduced me to Bento and I initially decided to foster him after my beloved dog, Ninjy Lou recently passed. I was not planning on getting another dog so soon after her death. With his disabilities, Bento needs consistent care and it would be challenging to find a good home for him. We have now bonded and I plan on keeping him.

I was aware of his vision and hearing disabilities when I started fostering him. The seizures came a few days later and were consistent. After 18 severe seizures in 2 months, I took him to the Buellton Veterinary Clinic. They prescribed medication to help with the seizures. Since being on the medication, he has only had 2 minor seizures in the last 46 days (as of June 30).

He is now due for more tests to ensure the medication is not adversely affecting his liver and kidneys. He may also then need a costly MRI.

All of his donations have been used and I have also added funds. We are looking for more help to get these tests completed and to pay for his medications.

I wasn't planning on getting a dog after my Ninjy Lou passed but I think this all happened for a reason. Bento is a happy, sweet and gentle dog. He gets along with people and dogs and just needs a chance.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Marlo
