Vet treatment for Ben

A vet, no less, has called Ben ‘the gold plated dog! 47509768_1587392109189103_r.jpeg He had a difficult start in life; found as an orphaned singleton pup foraging for food in rural Greece, he was taken into a kind shelter and finally brought to the UK for adoption. However his leishmaniasis (usually dormant or cheaply treatable in young dogs) became active and due to bladder problems which required two major surgeries, he is not able to take the usual medication. His recent vet bills have been high and this is sadly likely to continue. Ben is only 7 years old and has the most vigorous ‘lust for life’ despite, we think, now going blind. He is deliriously and gratifyingly happy with his dog behaviourist mum and dad . Give a Dog a Home pays his medical expenses and will do so for life, which we are determined will be as long as we can make it . For my birthday fundraiser this year, please help with his medical costs? Every little helps, for us, a very small and extremely caring  ‘niche’  rescue who look after the lowest of the low - foreign homeless dogs. Let’s not forget them in this difficult time of our own medical crisis.
Sending love and blessings, Lynne xx
