You learn a lot while travelling. One thing being, waking up in a jungle is different each and every time, sometimes you wake to the buzz of a mosquito, the roar of a howler monkey, a sweat drenched bed from the inescapable heat or... in this case, a 6 month old, tick ridden Belgian Shepherd... Who we later named Taz.
It didn't take long for us come to the conclusion that we cannot walk away from this pup without doing what ever we can to save his life.
We took Taz under our collective wing.
Starting with giving him a hearty breakfast and removing around 60 ticks from his emaciated body we jumped on a bus and headed straight for the nearest town to seek out a vet.
So far we have covered all the medical costs for our newly adopted pup, this includes:
Vet Consultation Blood Tests Tick Born Disease Tests Medication for the diseases he's picked up from being abandoned in the jungle Vaccinations Vitamin Boosters Worming Treatment Flea Treatment
As well as this we've invested in a travel crate for Taz and the other essentials: food, collar, lead, the odd treat.
Once Taz is fighting fit again we'll be sending him for the snip to prevent more of the same situation!
This is were you can come in...
As you know, its expensive having a dog, especially a sick one, combining this with our traveller budget(s) we need your help covering these building costs.
Taz is absolutely amazing, even in his current state he is still such a happy boy. We cannot wait to show you how he progresses from his current state to a strong healthy and even happier dog.
Your donations will go directly towards medicines, treatments and his inevitable neutering.
