RESCUE & ADOPTION) writes:

Hi! I'm Tony the Tiger and I'm GR-R-REAT!

I came into rescue because my Mom had dementia
and was no longer able to take care of me.
I had been with her since I was a pup.
I'm now in my senior years
and am looking for a new home.

I was born on 6 July 6 2003;
I'm now nine years young.


I am a good boy
who loves the company
of people and most dogs.

I think short walks and rides in the car are GR-R-REAT!

Ph

I am crate-trained,
but don't really need
to be in one while
you are gone unless
there is food on
the counter.

I think food is GR-R-REAT!

Several years ago, I weighed over 100 pounds,
which is probably why I blew out my knee
and which did not help my hips.
My Mom did not have my knee fixed;
now my left rear leg does not bend,
but it doesn't hamper my ability to walk and get around.

Ph


When I came into rescue, I stunk really bad; my doctor did an
emergency dental as I had a severe infection in my mouth
and seven teeth were pulled.

Ph


Now I have to wait for several months for the infection to
leave my body before I can have my right hip looked at.

I'm looking for a GR-R-REAT
home to live my senior years with -
someone who will care for me,
take me for short walks and
enjoy my company.

I will probably need some
additional health needs addressed,
but the GR-R-REAT folks
at ATRA will assist with
my health expenses.

Are you the GR-R-REAT
rescue person I'm looking for?


Paula adds:

I received a phone call from a business connection,
as she remembered talking with me about Airedale rescue.
She was the guardian of her aunt who owned an Airedale,
but now had dementia and needed to find Tony a new home.

The guy had been neglected for a long time.
When he was two years old, he was diagnosed with severe hip displaysia;
the lady decided not to do anything about it.
At one point in time he was 107 pounds (right now he is
75 pounds), according to his vet records.
That must have been when he blew out his left knee.
They never got that fixed, so his left leg is like a peg leg and does not bend.

About a year and half prior to him coming into rescue,
the lady was told by the vet that he needed
two teeth pulled due to infection. She never had that done,
so he had an emergency dental done the day after I got him.
His mouth was so infected and he had seven teeth pulled.
We are adding a supplement to his water to help with his teeth.

I have to wait a few more months yet before that entire infection
leaves his body before I can do any more with him.
We have decided we cannot do anything with his left leg.
as both his hip and his knee are irreparable.
I'm going to have his right hip looked at when I can,
but I doubt I will decide to do anything because of his age.
I don't think he would pull through that.

Right now we are trying to get his diarrhea under control.
He has lost a lot of weight; we had a full blood panel done
to make sure he didn't have cancer.
His numbers were good. No worms or anything,
so now I have put him on special GI food.

His ears are a mess; he must have had
several hematomas as they are all lumpy.

But despite all that he is a happy camper.
I have him on pain medication along with glucosamine & chondroitin;
the whole nine yards to try and make him comfortable.

I need a quiet home for him so he can rest his tired body.
He loves to roll around in the grass and lie outside smelling the aire.
He does not sit much; I doubt it is comfortable for him.

His bills so far total $717.
Finding a quiet home for him to live out his days is a high priority.
If you think you're the right home for Tony,
please contact Paula HERE.
