Pooh the 16 year old senior lhasa apso, having been heartlessly dumped at Lancaster shelter, was emergency pulled to save her life, and now needs specialist senior rescue to give her the care and treatment she needs.

Pooh is confused and wonders what she has done to deserve her family who she has known all her life dumping her like trash in Lancaster shelter.

Pooh has a number of health issues; thyroid problems (she is being treated for this, although this may be temporary), arthritis in her back (she is being treated for this), and she at times walks in circles (although this could be temporary due to an ear infection or vestibular disease). Her teeth also aren't looking as squeaky clean as they once were!! She needs a specialist senior rescue to give the the proper care, attention, and treatment that she needs in her twilight months.

Pooh has had blood tests already, and we are awaiting results of a urine test and x-rays on her chest (to check capacity for general anaesthetic for dental work), back (to investigate suspected arthritis), and head (to rule out neurological problems / noticeable tumour).

However, Pooh is enjoying life - she loves to eat, walk and sleep. There's life in the old dog yet!!

An incredibly kind So Cal rescue is able to take pooh under their wing, but ONLY with a donation to help with the costs of pooh's vetting and care.

$400+ IS NEEDED TO GET POOH TO SPECIALIST SO CAL SENIOR RESCUE.

The additional fundraising target amount is to help towards Pooh's vetting expenses incurred so far.

Pooh is currently in temporary foster; this is not a permanent arrangement and the last thing we want is for Pooh to have to go into boarding, when what she needs is a cosy home to curl up in! Pooh needs a specialist senior rescue that understands her needs, and is experienced enough to be able to make decisions on Pooh's future taking into account her health, comfort, quality of life, and prospects.

Please donate to show that despite her old age, Poohs life has worth, and she deserves to see out the rest of her days in comfort. Rescue dogs deserve the chance to live as much as any other dog! Please lets be there for Pooh in her time of need, as we are all that she has got.
