Moose is a big dog with a giant sized heart.  Being the young Rottweiler that he is, Moose dreams of burying bones, chasing a ball, running after squirrels and palling around with kids, while trying to sit in their laps.

Unfortunately, all of these things are not a reality for him.  Moose has developed a type of nasal cancer that is painful and makes breathing and eating difficult.  Moose doesn't have a voice to tell us but we know he wants to live and have a boy/girl/family for his own.

Moose was picked up as a stray and was scheduled to be euthanized the day we rescued him from a Tennessee shelter.  We saw those eyes and knew we had to get him out!

We thought Moose had an upper repiratory infection but after several weeks of 3 different antibiotics that did not help, it appeared to be a chronic condition......or worse. Moose's vet suggested that Moose see a specialist.  It was during the endoscopy that it was discovered Moose has a nasal tumor.  

The only solution at this point is immediate surgery.  And possibly chemo or radiation afterwards.  We are taking it one step at a time.  At this point we are raising funds for Moose's surgery.  The surgery cost is much more than the $1,275 we are raising, but his vet has offered to do the surgery at a much reduced cost.  He can see how much life Moose has left in him.

With the surgery and follow up care, Moose would be expected to make a full recovery within 4-7 weeks allowing him to have the happy life he so deserves.

MAR (Mercer Animal Rescue) is a foster based rescue located outside of Memphis, TN that relies on donations to provide the best care for our orphaned animals in need, like Moose. We need your help! Please consider a donation to Moose's Surgery Fund today, and we will be sure to update you on his journery through (hopeful) surgery, recovery, and his happy ending for in this case, his fresh start to life!
