Forever Home Dog Rescue helps hundreds of dogs find their new forever home every year. Bourbon is one of those dogs. This boy is simply 'GLORIOUS' - full of life and charms everyone he meet. He had a medical emergency and needs our help!

My name is Sindy and I am a volunteer/foster for Forever Home Dog Rescue.  Recently we had the pleasure of taking in Bourbon. His family felt he was not getting the time and attention he deserved at home (he was competing with two Poms) so FHDR happily took on his case and began searching for a new forever home for this big sweet palooka!

He actually was ten minutes away from his first meet-n-greet when we determined he was dreadfully ill. I mean this guy went from robust and playful to complete lethargy and vomiting.  After a misdiagnosis of pancreatitis, his life was really "on the rocks" as he was rushed to emergency surgery. A large foreign body (toy? ball?) was found in his tummy.  We are still not sure what the item is and are confounded as to how he got this in his system.  Right now we need to concentrate on getting Bourbon back on his feet.  He is recuperating.  

We now face a $3,200 bill with our vet.  FHDR will pay but this will greatly affect the number of dogs that we can help.  We try not to say "no" when others come to us in their time of need. But that may be the reality for awhile.  If we could get some financial assistance from the community we serve, our operations may not be in jeopardy.   So, if you would like to donate we certainly do appreciate every dime.  I will add that there was no hesitation to do the right thing by this dog.  His potential adopter is waiting to meet Bourbon and being kept in the loop.  We hope you can join us in helping this dog.  Thank you for your generosity.
