Borris, the Rottweiler, was found a few weeks ago and was taken in by a very wonderful person until owners could be found. Unfortunately for Borris, it seems no one was looking for him. His finder could no longer take care of him, having 4 dogs of her own. So I offered to take him in as a foster, to take the time to find him a wonderful forever home.

His finder told me she believed he had been abused. And I agree 100%, he is very shy to the hand, ducks his head or jumps back if you move too fast.
We noticed he does not fully retract his tongue in his mouth. We thought he just had a very long tongue. Well he does! But that is not the reason it hangs out of his mouth. Upon taking him to get vaccinated, we learned that at some point his jaw had been broken.

Why?? How?? We have no idea. However, we do know that when it happened he was never taken to a vet to have it corrected to heal properly. As you can see in the picture, it has healed improperly, diagonally, causing his tongue to hang out permanently. This is going to require x-rays to see what all is going on from a specialists point of view. Then we will know whether we need to correct his jaw or remove part of his tongue. We are hopeful that he will not have to go through any more pain ever again but we will not know for sure with out your help. Please help us get Borris the proper medical care he has been neglected his entire life!

Borris also has something going on with his ears that appears to be quite painful. We believe he either has ear mites or a inner ear infection but when taken in to get checked, they muzzled him, for their protection (His ears REALLY hurt) but were not able to look in his ears because of his jaw. With it healed improperly, he cannot breath with a muzzle on. He will have to be sedated to take a look at his ears.

Please help us help Borris. He has been fighting for so long on his own, now lets stand with him and fight together!!
