Ollie, Terrier Mix

Ollie3Meet Ollie.

Ollie came into the Humane Society of Yuma as a stray. This 15 pound, 5 year old cutie would ordinarily be a very adoptable dog, but unfortunately Ollie had some medical needs that made him unadoptable…

This poor little guy has a broken jaw, and his mouth is sideways, as you can see in the pictures! The Humane Society was not able to perform the needed surgery to wire his jaw straight, and so they called us. Of course we said YES to helping this cutie!

Ollie will see our partner vet and we will get his surgery scheduled asap. For now, Ollie is being kept comfortable (and very loved!) in a wonderful foster home.

His foster mom says Ollie is very sweet and affectionate.

As happy as we are to help these dogs, the simple fact of the matter is that surgery isn’t cheap! PLEASE, if you are able, donate to Ollie’s medical care via PayPal below. We truly appreciate any amount! Thank You!

Ollie’s Updates:

Ollie is recuperating in a loving foster home after surgery to repair his broken jaw. Turns out, there were actually two fractures! We will be sure to keep everyone updated on Ollie’s healing and progress.

Update, July 2016: Ollie is doing well overall. He’s in no pain, but his jaw is still broken despite multiple surgeries. He’s happy & playful, loves to cuddle and show off his “begging” pose for treats! We are looking into some veterinary dentist referrals and other options with our partner vet. This is a terrible break and nothing we are doing is working, we think because the injury was so severe and old enough that everything in there was already all messed up.
