Bosco is a 10 year old Corgi boy who has lived with his loving family his whole life. In February 2012 he was diagnosed with severe degenerative valve disease with congestive heart failure. Corgi Dad Mike needs help keeping his little guy healthy. More ...
Bosco and his Corgi Dad Mike were referred to CorgiPals by current Helping Paws clients Cricket and Corgi Mom Jackie. Mike had set up a GoFundMe page to raise the necessary funds to help Bosco on his own, but only $25 was donated... so CorgiPals offered to help! Here is Bosco's story in Mike's words:

"Bosco is 10 years old, and I've had him since he was a wee pup. He loves visitors (for whom he always shows off with whatever is his favorite toy of the day), herding the cats in the back yard, and lounging in the sun on the stairway landing. Bosco is the only dog I've known who actually likes to visit his veterinarian, and he has always displayed a real penchant for words and phrases, such as ride, go, walk, bath, and "Do you want . . ." as in "Do you want to go see Dr. Randy?" His prefers to nap with a toy next to his face, or with his head up on the arm of the sofa. And his favorite, though rare, snacks are peanuts still in the shell, with which he takes great pains to gently bite off the shell (usually after he has played with it for a while), eat the peanuts seperately, and then eat the shell anyway. It's quite an amusing spectacle to watch him do it.

In February 2012, Bosco was diagnosed with severe degenerative valve disease with congestive heart failure. Fortunately, Bosco receives excellent care from MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets and he has been responding well to medications, but these medications and regular evaluations at MedVet are quite costly and have begun to put a strain on our finances.

Bosco is a dear member of my family and waits patiently on the landing for me to return whenever I am away. He brings joy to everyone who knows him. I can't imagine my home without him.

We know that times are difficult for everyone, but even the smallest donation to assist with Bosco's continuing medical treatment would be greatly, and humbly, appreciated. Thank you for your kindness and generosity."

The estimated cost to continue treating Bosco for the next few months, including vet visits and medications, is $2,500, of which we have raised $433 so far. Please spread the word about Bosco's story so we can ensure that he gets many more years of healthy Corgi living with his loving family.
