Please welcome our newest DRNA addition in Maryland. His name is Russell and he is almost 14 years old. He was hit by a car, taken to the city shelter and no one came to claim him. He is sight and hearing impaired. Needs a dental. Has hair loss from a flea infestation. He goes to the vet tomorrow. Nice old boy. Please donate if you can towards his care.

UPDATE: Happy to report that Russell has no broken bones but does have arthritis. Vet feels that he has no vision at all. Can hear a little if you raise your voice! Ear infection, skin infection, diarrhea, dental in early March. Will need quiet home where he can have a comfy cozy bed. Another quiet dog would be good for him and a fenced yard. Will need a lot of patience as he settles in. It's not easy being an old blind dog and having to make changes. Please help us help him.
