This young man unfortunately has had a hard time in his life so far, he has had two problems that have prevented him from being able to be rehomed.
The first issue is the blood condition called Leishmaniasis. Which is contracted through infected mosquito bites. This can only be passed to other dogs through mosquito’s or from an open sore (blood to blood contact) It makes it very hard to find him a forever home, the chance of him passing on the condition to other dogs, is very slim, but there is still that chance.
And the second issue was a problem with his rear end. This summer we noticed that he had started to form a large mass just to the side of his rectum. Upon further testing it was found that he had a benign tumour. He has under gone surgery, which was a great success and had the mass removed. The shelter was kindly donated the funds for his surgery by a donor, who wishes to stay unanimous. And he has now made a full recovery.
So for now, this young man will stay with us, where he can undergo treatment, in the form of medication, regular 6 month check ups and blood testing. With the hope that one day he will be able to find his forever home to.
