The ship has pulled into port and Billy our new little pilgrim has disembarked! Just in time for turkey! This 20 pound, 10 year old, neutered male Boston Terrier was picked up as a stray in Downey. Poor little guy had a mass on the side of his head, flakey fur and an irritated right eye. The shelter quickly got in touch with Boston Buddies & our Director set out on the journey to rescue Mr. Bill and get him to the vet for his much needed medical care. The mass was completely removed, we are happy to report it was benign. He had a complete dental which included getting 2 teeth pulled. Then it was off to his new foster home and a trip to the ophthalmologist. It was determined that his right eye has corneal degeneration and will probably always require medicated drops. The eye doctor compared the vision in his right eye to looking through a dirty, foggy windshield – it is visual– just not crystal clear. He sees well out of his left eye and has no problems finding his way around. In fact he absolutely loves exploring and taking strolls through uncharted territory. The transition into his new foster home was smooth sailing. Billy Boy gets along with other dogs, sleeps in his own dog bed and is very self-sufficient. He is not a needy, Velcro dog, in fact it seems he enjoys some “time to himself”. Did not take him long to figure out the doggie door and has not had any potty accidents. Totally cooperative for bathing and grooming. His foster Mom just ordered some special shampoo to help his coat be flake free but we figure with a healthy diet his coat will be soft and shiny in no time. Billy is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, fecal and heartworm tested (both negative) and microchipped. Billy is a great travel companion and he would love a journey over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving dinner.
