Pappy was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter. He was very emaciated and the shelter contacted us to help him. Our vet diagnosed him with Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) which we are managing with prescription food, medication (prednisone, pepcid, tylan powder and probiotics) and B12 supplement.. He is doing very well with this regimen and is up to a normal weight. He is a great dog who loves to relax in the sun and go for walks. Pappy is good with other dogs and would need a dog buddy about his age in his adoptive home. He also needs an adopter who is home more than not and a good-sized fenced yard. Anyone who considers adopting Pappy should have a history of caring for a dog with an ongoing illness. Pappy also had a dental and lost 37 teeth. He will be available mid-July after his neuter and hernia repair. ***Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Pappy.***
