Bo, Terrier/Spaniel Mix

Meet Bo.

A tender touchBo is like many dogs we’ve met in the shelters- a broken spirit in horrible physical condition. We often don’t know these dog’s full stories; what led to them ending up in the pound in this terrible state?

This sweet boy’s sad eyes say all we need to know right now though- Bo needs help and we won’t turn away from him like so many before have done.

Soon, Bo’s past won’t matter anymore- only his future, which is looking brighter indeed.

Please share Bo’s story and pictures with your world and if able, donate to his medical care chip in fund by clicking the Paypal link at the bottom of the page. Thank You!

Medical notes from county: Dog is thin and has hairless and red skin. Generalized alopecia and erythema, mild scabbing noted. Caudal alopecia. Rule out flea allergy and sarcoptes. Revolution based on weight.

 

Bo is very sickEmergency Medical Update, Oct. 28th: Bo was rushed to the emergency vet last night with vomiting, lethargy, pale gums, and a temperature of 104. The x-rays were normal, but his initial blood work revealed a hematocrit level of 10, indicating a severe case of tick fever. He was immediately started on high doses of antibiotics and Prednisone and kept overnight for monitoring.
Unfortunately this morning his platelet count was down even more and he needed an emergency blood transfusion. When a crisis hits, it’s always unexpected and now this is where your help is so desperately needed! Please share Bo for help with his emergency vet care and contribute if you’re able….you were all there for him when he was rescued and
we know you’ll come through for him again! Thank You!

Update Oct. 29th: Bo is still in dire need of medical funds to cover round the clock emergency care for the past two days! His bill is approaching $1000 and his hematocrit has only come up to 13 after the blood transfusion. That’s still dangerously low so he cannot go home yet and will be staying another night to have multiple blood checks and monitor for bruising. Thank you to everyone who has shared him and contributed to his emergency medical care. Please continuing sharing Bo’s plea and keep him your thoughts. We’re all pulling for you, Bo!

 Bo’s Updates:

 Bo has officially been adopted! Congrats to Bo and his fur-ever family!

Bo! What a face!From Bo’s foster to adopt family:Bo has been in our home one month and flourishing. His body is filling out, he has gained 1.5 pounds and his hair has grown in beautifully. He just finished his antibiotics this week, but now I think he misses his peanut butter pill pockets. Bo will stay in sit/stay 100% of the time that we ask, and come about 90% of the time…not so much when he is enjoying all the sights and sounds in the park. He is happy and playful and thankfully the excited jumping is down to knee high now, instead of waist high. He loves our walks and runs and scampering around our back yard…even though it is desert landscaping, he doesn’t seem to mind. He is a snuggler and a cuddler and we love him! Thank you MAIN for rescuing him and giving us such a joyful dog. Bo is the best and training us well!

Update, Nov. 2nd from Bo’s foster mom: Bo’s platelets are finally regenerating, but they are still very low. I’m super exited at the prospect of being able to bring him home tomorrow He has been the best boy ever through everything he has been through!

Update, Nov. 1st: Bo is perkier today! We will redo bloodwork in the AM. He is so full of love and cuddles. The doctors are happy with how he is looking compared to previous days. He will stay the weekend at the hospital.

From Bo’s foster mom, Sept. 11th: Bo is doing fantastic and gets along well with all size dogs. His skin is doing great- he has actual fur growing in. I am going to start leash training him (he has no manners with that) but I am sure that the Saturday morning classes will help with that. Total love bug!

From Bo’s foster family, Aug. 8th: After a little cleaning up, Bo is white not brown! He is a sweet guy and you can tell he knows he is safe, as he got on my lap to cuddle a bit. It will be nice to see him start feeling better and growing more fur!
