He's full BT , almost 1 yr, not neutered, sweet sweet boy, has some skin issues and a dot on his left eye. He's house trained. End of QUOTENaturally, when I saw his pix with his little wall eyes, I said I would take him. Took him to the vet, he had demodex and every worm known to man it seemed like plus had coccidia on top of it all, but we have treated him for all those things now and he is doing well. He has 2 healed ulcers on each of his eyes and that is what that whitish scarring is on his eyeballs.
When I had him neutered, he bruised and swole up pretty bad and wouldn't stop bleeding for a long time and he has been oozing ever since. His bruising is all up into his penis and up his legs. Dr. Cindy glued his incision where it is oozing today to see if that helps stop the oozing. She thinks he might have gotten into some rat poison before I got him so we have now got him on Vitamin K like we did ZaZa. I thought he might have had hemophelia, but we pulled blood work and everything was in normal ranges on clotting factors and stuff. So don't know what the deal is on the blood oozing thing other than suspected rat poison.
Needless to say, he did NOT start his heartworm treatment when planned. I was not having Harpo's lil wall eyed brother die because I was rushing to get all his medical done fast.
The oozing finally stopped and Zammy has completed his heartworm treatment. His demodex has cleared up and his hair is gown back in, it is thinner than it should be, but I hope eventually it will fill all the way in.
I can tell you right now that I have gotten very attached to this little boy and you are gonna have to be better than the average adopter in order to adopt him. I want to keep him myself, but... I have enough dogs already. Plus my home is not the perfect environment for his needs. Zammy is one of those that can be playing great with the others and then it morphs into a fight. Or if a fight starts between any of the other dogs boom he is in the middle of it even if he was in another room when it started. Once a fight starts you have to physically pick him up and remove him from the fray for a time out in a crate or another room. Otherwise he keeps going after the dog that he was fighting with. Zammy is like one of those dogs in the movie where the dogs are saying squirrel Squirrel and all thoughts leave the dogs brain except chasing the squirrel. The only problem his lost mind revolves around fights instead of squirrels. Due to this little issue, Zammy does need to be supervised when he is with other dogs.
Zammy is great with people and is just a little love muffin. He loves to be held and cuddled and get kisses. Zammy sleeps with me every night and just snuggles right on down under the covers until he gets too hot then he pushes out and comes back up to lay next to me. Zammy snorts and snores real bad due to his little short nose and that is NORMAL for him. He is not real bright, but he more than makes up for it by being one of the most lovable, cuddliest little guys you ever met.
I love this little guy and I want what is best for him. IN MY OPINION, Zammy would do best in a home with a submissive female dog or as an only dog. In the right home, this boy will be the heart of the family as he steals everyone's heart that meets him. IN a couple of the pix you can see how he looked before & in the 1st one is after when he is is looking good.
