He was an owner surrender to county, emaciated and unable to completely use his back legs due to Valley Fever, but has made a miraculous recovery! He now has full use of his legs, gained a healthy amount of weight, and his valley fever titer number continues to decrease with his treatment. His foster family tell us, "every day is the best day for Buddy- he is amazing and absolutely loves life!"
Buddy lost his left eye to valley fever, it has now been removed and doesn't bother him at all, and he recently had a dental. He also has a thyroid issue, triggered by valley fever, that is easily managed with daily meds.
Buddy loves to sleep under covers, or snuggle with his people and his dog friends. He is learning to play, and his foster family has taught him a few basic commands and how to walk well on a leash. He may do best in a home without large dogs, as they make him nervous, but may be fine with a calmer one. He currently lives with 3 other small dogs with no issues. He is also house and crate trained.
He will need someone dedicated to his health, as he will continue to be on meds for Valley Fever for a few more months, thyroid meds for life, and possibly an eye drop for life to keep his one eye healthy.
