The shelter posted him incorrectly as a 10 year old Welsh Terrier. What a bunch of geniuses!!! He’s actually a 7 or 8 year old Corgi! So because of the incorrect posting no Corgi rescues would take him because although they realized he was a Corgi the thought he was 10 with issues. Their words were “we’d rather save our resources for a more adoptable dog”. WOW!!! That’s some rescue! So we were asked once again by the corgi community to save Leo’s life. Of course we said yes with no hesitation. Just like always.
So Leo had the tumor removed. It was the size of a grapefruit. It’s called a Neurofibroma and is a tumor formed on a nerve cell sheath, frequently symptomless but occasionally malignant. Thankfully Leo’s is not malignant but because of the edges in this type of tumor not being clean it will most likely come back. We are now looking into other options and want to check into Cryogenic surgery for him. He's healing from the last surgery pretty well.
Leo will not be available for adoption until we have a plan of treatment for him.
If you would like to sponsor Leo please consider making a monthly donation towards his care.
Leo is located in Freeport NY and is spending his days playing fetch and playing fetch and playing fetch and and and……….. LOL!
