A shelter dog, stricken with terminal cancer, is desperately in need of a true home to spend the remainder of his life in. The dog, a nine-year-old mixed breed named Crisco, is at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter in Long Island, New York.
A social media post explains Crisco’s dire health situation:
This very lovable handsome senior is currently homeless and in need of a Hospice home. He came to us as a stray and has become a staff and volunteer favorite but recently his abdomen was becoming distended. An Ultrasound revealed enlarged adrenal glands, one being much larger than the other. He was tested for Cushings Disease and the results were normal so now it is assumed that he has an adrenal mass. Chest x-rays also revealed another mass.
The shelter explains that Crisco is currently “very happy” and unaware that there is a problem. A hospice foster home is desperately needed because shelter staff wants Crisco to have a real home to enjoy for the time he has left.
Crisco needs to be the only pet in the home.
Crisco is 64 pounds, estimated to be about 8 to 9 years old, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, micro-chipped and heart-worm negative.
