Max is one of those very sweet boys who REALLY needed our help. He was turned into a shelter in Virginia by his owners because he hurt his back and could no longer walk because his back legs were paralyzed. Rather than take care of him and give him the medical care he required they hard-heartedly left him at that shelter all alone, confused and hurting. The shelter contacted us to help him and through crate rest and medication, he is now walking. He is such a determined boy! During one of his exams my vet found two cracked three-rooted molars (carnassials) that needed to be removed because they are causing Max pain. So in addition to a regular dental cleaning, he needs some rather expensive extractions. The total cost will be $500. Max is one of those senior dogs that we will spend a lot of money on and then adopt out for little or nothing. In order to keep helping seniors, we really need your help. Dogs like Max are so very deserving of our help.
