My name is Blazer. I am a neutered black n tan, 4 year old cocker boy and decently house trained. I was listed on a yard sale facebook post to find a home. CCR was alerted that I needed a home by a lady who works at the rescue vet and also for animal control. I lived with someone who couldn't keep me, so they gave me away to the daughter of this lady who posted that I needed a home. The lady and her daughter already had another dog and didn't really want two dogs, so they decided not to keep me. After hearing about me, CCR made phone contact and the lady finally agreed to let me come to CCR to get my needs taken care of, as.my vet care has been neglected for quite awhile. Lucky for me, coming to rescue is a good thing because these folks will make sure that I get my needs taken care of before I find a new forever home.
I am heartworm negative and a very nice, easy going cocker boy with a wonderful, outgoing personality. After I get my vet needs get taken care of, I will be a wonderful addition for someone to adopt and love. I am child friendly and will do well with children 8 years and older. At my evaluation, they learned that I am anemic, I have dry eye and I have ear infections, so these issues are being addressed. I came here with some skin and coat issues too, but the vet says this is due to flea allergies. I am being treated and it does not seem to be food related. They also found that I have an injured leg that was never taken care of when I got shot awhile back with a pellet gun (the pellet is still inside), I have a broken heal hawk and a luxated patella. They say I need a dental so the pellet will be removed while I am under sedation. Unfortunately, my leg will never be like it should due to neglected vet care at the time it happened awhile ago. I also have seen the vet for an acupuncture visit where they learned that I am squeamish when my feet are touched. X-rays were taken and it showed that I have broken toe bones in both feet. Signs indicate that someone long ago, stomped on my rear feet breaking the bones or somehow hit me with something simply to be cruel and make me suffer with nothing was ever done about it. My ears also required treatment for nasty ear infections. These rescue folks have found me to be a real sweetheart with a heart of gold despite my neglected vet issues. They feel that someone in my past must have really loved me and treated me well in my early years, because I am just a great guy with a sparkling personality and a happy, happy doggie. I would love to find my perfect home with someone who will love me for the wonderful companion that I am. After I get well, please give me the 2nd chance that I deserve to have a great home and a great rest of my life! Please donate today to help with my care so that I can get well and find my loving home..I appreciate your kindness with any amount that you can give, and please put my name on it so that people will know that it is for me. CCR, P.O. Box 1050, Kannapolis, NC 28081.
Due to all of my injuries that must now be addressed, this rescue will need to raise $1000 to $1500. I will need a dental, pins to repair my toes if the orthopedic vet recommends it to help me, getting the pellet removed, ear issues and whatever they decide to do to help my heal hawk, if anything can be done. I am sweet as sweet can be, child friendly (kids 8 and over) dog friendly and decently house trained.
