With no immediate family in the area, he was able to place Buck elsewhere with the expectation that they would be reunited in 12 months. Unfortunately, the deployment has extended, and he was placed into our home as a foster until he finds a family with whom he can live out his senior years. We decided to foster Buck not only because am I a foster home for Labs but I am a veteran as well. Buck was diagnosed with a Mast cell tumor on his left ear. Due to the size of the tumor and to minimize risk of the tumor returning, the left ear was completely removed. The diagnosis and subsequent surgery were unexpected and the cost was significantly higher than anticipated, totaling to $5,500. Buck is doing great and has fully recovered after surgery. We are reaching out to the dog community and others for help in offsetting the cost of the procedure, and getting Buck ready for adoption. We have enclosed a few pictures of this wonderful dog for your enjoyment. I will be happy to provide all the veterinary costs upon request.

Last we Buck had the stitches removed from his left ear. The site has healed well and considering the amount of ear that had to be removed he looks pretty darn good. The oncologist said the Mast tumor was extensive. The prognosis is Buck condition will deteriorate with a life expectancy of 6 to 9 months. Currently he is very active and as the weather warms up I would expect him to be outside more digging holes on in the backyard. The plan going forward is to keep Buck safe and comfortable.
Thanks to all of you that have been so kind and generous in helping defer the cost of Buck surgery. Please continue to spread the work.
