An ailing senior dog, held at the County of Orange – OC Animal Care facility in California, is desperately in need of help. The dog, a Chow Chow believed to be 12 years of age, obviously is in need of veterinary care – he arrived to the facility on September 19 and medical notes indicate that he is in pain and unable to stand.
The full extent of this senior dog’s ailments is unknown – judging by the appearance of his body, he has lived, for quite some time, in a neglectful situation. A rescue agency has offered to take this senior dog under its wing, but a foster home is needed.
On Thursday, the rescue agency, Lionel’s Legacy, wrote of its need for a committed foster home:
Holy heck, if this doesn’t rip at your heart then I don’t know what does. I don’t care about “how this happened” but I do care about “how we can fix this. please share this sweet old man, he needs a foster and a rescue. Many people have contacted us to help him but our hands are tied unless we have a COMMITTED FOSTER to help us help him! When we say committed we mean through thick and thin & for life if needed because a committed family is something this poor soul clearly hasn’t had! It says he’s 8 but I think that’s a very generous number since they’ve said he has limited mobility and needs to see a vet ASAP.
If a foster home is found, the rescue agency is committed to offering the food, supplies and veterinary care needed to help this dog recuperate.
