Merlin ended up on the transfer list at the local shelter where he was to die. He has many medical issues that need to be addressed. On tracing back his chip, we found out he is at least 13 years old even though the shelter listed him as 8. He is not overweight and he has a great little temperament, that is what he has going for him.
Merlin has little to no hair on his ears and they are bright bright red. He shakes his head constantly and we are thankful he did not end up with a hematoma. His issues with his ear run very deep into the ear. He has a heart murmur. We removed a mass under his tail and some rotten teeth. He was treated for his ears with little to no effect and now we are thinking it is allergies as it seems to have spread across his body. the allergy shot he got, seems to actually be helping.
He has a perirectal hernia. It is not emergent but it will definitely need surgery. When will that need surgery, well it could be months or closer to a year, we just do not know. There is no other fix for it and here is the kicker, it has to be done by a specialist as it is a delicate surgery. We will focus on that at a later date. currently we are working on his issues right in front of us to fix.
Merlin is a fun loving dog that does not act his age and when he is feeling ok, he loves to play with toys. ..
