Horror faced us this week with one of our relinquishments.  As we unraveled the bandage from a foot we were told he was chewing at periodically, we found only a stub of a limb and a stub in critical condition at that.  Little Toby developed IVDD a week before Christmas, but we cannot find record of treatment in his papers.  As the pressure on his spinal cord lessened and the feeling returned to his foot, the tingling led to him chew his toes and part of his foot away.  Now only a nub remains.


Toby is in so much pain.  We are addressing that, but getting him to specialty care and treating the underlying cause is mandatory for this sweet and loving little guy to have any quality of life.  An amputation is most likely and a prosthetic leg and specialized cart are all parts of his future. And beyond this we must address the residual effects of the IVDD.


We will be scheduling an appointment with orthopedics today and getting this guy the treatment he so desperately needs ASAP.  Pain medications are on board as are massive antibiotics to avoid sepsis.  Neurology and physical therapy will come later.  And of course, we are pouring on the love.


Toby will need radiographs, blood work, a specialized cart, surgery and more adding up to a total of over $6,500.  Today we need your help to support his recovery.  Are you up to helping Toby meet his challenge?  We sure hope so.  We are counting on your gift from the heart to help him get his life back.


Remember, your generous support is desperately needed and greatly appreciated.  Like many non-profit organizations DRBC is a 501[c][3] operated solely by volunteers.  We have been dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, re-homing and educating families about this breed for over 35 years.  We welcome and need your benevolent tax-deductible donation.  Please, help us to help them. 

We welcome you to stay tuned for updates.  Until then, Toby, all the rescue doxies and the DRBC Team thank you.
