”Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming”, that is my motto! Picked it up from the movie “NEMO”. I love life and being in it. I am 7 years old and was rescued by ERU 3.5 years ago from a shelter in Key West, FL. I was adopted to what I thought was to be my furever home but all of a sudden found myself in a shelter again.
I don’t understand why as I love kids, dogs, TOYS and just being alive! I was limping though and the family took me to the vet and found my hip was out of the socket. They wanted the vet to put me to sleep but they would not, telling the family to contact ERU. Instead they dropped me at the shelter. The shelter called ERU and my original foster family came and got me! I love to run and play with TOYS even though my hips give out on me and I fall down sometimes…I just get back up and keep going. It hurts but I do my best not to think about it and stay up beat and friendly.
I know my up-beat attitude has saved me and ERU has done that for me twice now. My teeth were in horrible shape and I have had those taken care of already…did not lose any of them thank goodness. I love to have them brushed and hope to keep them that way with your help. I also am a bit overweight which does not help my hip problem so my foster mom has me on a strict diet to try and get rid of a couple of pounds. I don’t mind…I am just so happy to be with a family that cares for me and a rescue that will try to help get my hips fixed.
They need to do a procedure called Femoral Head Ostectomy or F.H.O. and it can only be done on one hip at a time. The right one will be first because it is out of the socket and causes a lot of pain…although I try really hard not to let on to that. Estimates for each hip are around $1300.
I hear another ERU rescue out in Colorado named Max needs the same surgery and I know we would both appreciate any donations you can send our way.
Doggies are not suppose to beg…but would you PLEASE send a couple dollars to the ERU medical fund so that both Max and I can get our hips taken care of?
My name is Bailey Boy, I am up to datw on all my shots, HW negative and neutered. I want to be a Velcro dog in a real furever family. Thank you ERU for saving me twice!
Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state. If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers.There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
