View ROMEO's Profile

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo. When found on a busy highway at first we were just happy to get a call to help a lost dachshund. Then we went to pick him up. Oh my gosh. Hunch backed from malnutrition, his eyes looked odd, pink eye; conjunctivitis, so painful and he doesn't understand; cries in pain to use the bathroom with the enlarged prostrate. The vet said it's the largest he's ever seen. So much pain for this sweet senior. Covered in fleas, dry, itchy skin from a poor diet plus hook worms. He only weighs 12 lbs, he should weigh about 14 or 15 lbs.
He is getting neutered immediately to help his prostrate, starting on eye drops and worming. Next the heartworm treatment. We so appreciate your donations to helping this boy get back on his feet and have a wonderful warm home and blanket in his senior years. Thank you. Foster moms Roxanne & Pam
