DIG DEEP FOR DOUG!!
Can you help this wonderful dog?
The answer was a RESOUNDING "YES WE CAN!!"
We wanted everyone to "Dig Deep for Doug!" and dig deep you did!
You all came through above and beyond what we'd hoped! You not only matched our challengers, you almost matched them twice! There are not enough words to thank everyone who gave to support Doug's on-going return to health. He's astounding everyone who has seen him - including the vets and techs at Compassionate Care Animal Hospital.
His personality is shining. He's very attached to his foster family, and in love with his "step-sister" Stella. He's confident, he's active, he loves food and treats and is reasonably good about taking his medicine. His ears are not painful anymore. There is still some work to do there, but at least he's not in pain from them!
It seems that as he gets better and stronger every day, that he is very possibly going to be able to be sedated and have those infected teeth taken care of finally. He'll probably end up with few if any teeth left in his mouth, but at least he'll be pain-free and no longer fighting that infection.
He's going to be requiring quite a bit more medical care, numerous check-ups to monitor his progress, and meds for life to keep his lungs functioning at their best capacity. So you can still Dig Deep for Doug, or give for any of the other very deserving dogs we've got in rescue. It's been raining dogs this month - a few with heartworm and other issues that need to be taken care of, so Doug thinks it's o.k. if you want to help them instead of him. He's just happy to have a family to love, and a nice big bed to sleep in every night.
