I am purebred, not good with kids, and good with dogs.
11/3/12 - I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!
ADOPTION FEE: $600
Fostered in Texas
Weight: 4.8 lbs.
Age: 8 months
10/14/12 - Baylor had his appointment with the ophthalmologist the other day and was taken off the antibiotics drops he was on. However, the vet felt that he should stay on the cyclosporine drops daily for his dry eye. At this point, we will assume that he will need these drops daily for life. He takes them very well and it is no more of hassle than a person putting daily rewetting drops in their own eyes.
9/6/12 - Baylor was neutered today, had 3 baby teeth pulled that haven’t fallen out on their own and was microchipped. He handled it all like a champ and will back to his ADD energy self in no time.
As expected, Baylor is an incredibly active puppy and can be a handful at times. He plays nonstop and will need another active pup (not too large) to play with if the human in the home isn’t able to throw his toys for him hour after hour. This little guy is such a ham and it is so endearing to see how far he has come from the pitiful little man that once arrived her needing to be fed every 3 hours.
Due to his size and him not realizing that he isn’t a 100 lb. Rottweiler, he will not be adopted to a home with small children.
He will have another check-up with the Opthamologist in October, but is foster mom continues to give him his Cyclosporine ointment twice daily and the Erythromycin ointment once daily. We will update after his next appt.
If you would like to add this bundle of joy and energy to your home and heart, fill out an application.
7/13/12 - Baylor got his rabies shot on 7/11/12 and will get his last Bordetell and DHPP today. All that is left is his neuter and microchip which can possibly be done in the next 2 weeks.
He had his follow-up appt. with the opthamologist on 7/12 and he said his eyes look much better and have responded to the eye drops well. He said that yorkies with congenital eye problems don't respond to the eye drops they way Baylor has, so it gives him hope that he may not have to be on them forever, but only time will tell. No guarantees can be made, an even though he looks much better, and the vet is pleased with his improvement, there is a chance that little Baylor could possibly need eye drops daily for the rest of his life. If so, that’s a small chore for what you will receive in return.
5/19/12 - Baylor saw the Ophthalmologist yesterday and it seems that little man has dry eye because his tear ducts aren’t producing enough tears at this time. He feels that this could be attributed to his lack of nutrition and care in his early weeks which is a very detrimental to that time. The cloudiness is a direct result of the body’s response to protect the surface of the eyes from the dryness. So he is on Erythromycin eye drops 4 times daily and the vet feels that these drops will relieve the body from trying to compensate for the dry eyes and along with his better eating regimen and life style now, should clear this this issue up. We will follow-up in 2 weeks to make sure the drops are making Baylor’s eyes wet and pretty.
5/10/12 - Little Baylor is having a rough start in life. His previous owner had to surrender him since he was having Hypoglycemic bouts and was needing to be fed every 2 hours to keep him stabilized. She was unable to do this and graciously gave him to YHR so we could make him all better. His foster mom has her clock set for every 2 hours and Baylor eats great and is getting stronger now and has not had any Hypoglycemic episodes since we have gotten him. He has been to the vet and does seem to have some other issues going on that are starting to be addressed. He will need to see an Opthalmologist because his eyes are cloudy and it is undetermined what is going on at this time. Also, little toot has some hair loss on his feet and one of his toes (as you can see in the picture) isn't all that it could be. Again, we aren't quite sure what is going on since his vet appointment was just yesterday to assess some of these issues. He is on antibiotics for that toe and an x-ray was done to make sure there is no bone involvement. He also has a yeast infection that he is taking medicine for to clear up. Looks like Baylor has alot on his plate and could use your good thoughts and donations as his vet bills are and will be on the rise.
