Help! This adorable Yorkie mix male is Reese & he needs your help. You see, he had been living with a broken front leg for about a year!!! His original owner didn't get him any vet care & he re-injured the leg. We took him to our veterinary orthopedic surgeon - hoping his leg could be saved with surgery. Unfortunately, because of several factors, it was impossible & his leg had to be amputated. Surgery was done months ago & Reese has healed beautifully. His vet expenses are $1344 & we need to raise the money to pay for it. So far, we've raised just over $800. If you can help at all, please click on the PayPal donate button below. No amount is too small. Thank you so much!!!
UPDATE: Reese had his surgery over 1 year ago. He is doing absolutely fantastic! He's an awesome, special dog with a gentle disposition. Reese is super with small dogs & also with children. His foster home has 2 other small dogs & 2 kids. Reese is 100% potty trained (goes outside) & is also crate trained. He prefers sleeping in his crate at night & walks in himself at bedtime. He's able to do anything a 4-legged dog can do & he's just as fast. Everyone who meets Reese falls in love with him. He's sooo incredibly sweet & has an outstanding temperament.
Reese is a Yorkie mix male. He's estimated to be 3 year olds & he weighs 16 lbs. In addition to his leg surgery, he's been neutered, fully vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, treated for fleas/ticks (natural products) & just had a dental by our vet (1-23-14). He's had 4 vet exams & re-checks. In spite of what he's been through, Reese is 1 of the sweetest dogs ever! He's a typical Yorkie...smart, good-natured, easy going, friendly & happy! He loves everyone - 2 & 4 leggers. He's been terrific about everything; his foster family adore him & have only good things to say about him. He's a handsome dog - making him as good on the outside as he is on the inside. He's socialized & very outgoing, with a charming personality. The photo with the blue bandage was taken at the vet hospital after his leg surgery.
Reese's adoption donation is $150 & includes his lifetime microchip registration. He needs a home with at least 1 other small dog close to his size & age...or a child/children who will play with him daily. Children must have small dog experience & know how to properly treat them. A family with a child/children & a small dog would be the very best. He doesn't like cats at all so he cannot live in a home with a cat(s).
