Byron’s rescue story.
Byron came to our rescue via the shelter in August 2017. He was at the shelter for 11 days in the heat of summer waiting for his owners to pick him up. However, they didn’t bother to come and get him. We were notified and went to evaluate him. He had infections in both ears, a large mass on his front leg and hind quarter. Part of his tail is missing from an old injury. He is the sweetest senior at the age of 12 years old. His tail didn’t stop moving…..
We got him to our vet for a thorough vet check, a much needed “spa” treatment. We did some tests on the two masses on his leg and hindquarters. The results came back Low Grade 2 Mast Cell Tumor. We decided to have the both of the masses surgically removed. The surgery went well and Byron went to his foster home to recuperate. He healed nicely from his surgery. He gets weekly medicated baths which his foster mom gives him to control his skin allergies.
The rescue decided to put Byron in our Permanent Foster Program cause of his diagnosis the Mast Cell Tumor. He will live his life with his foster family where the rescue will pay for all of Byron’s medical needs.
Byron loves his toys, goes on walks, enjoys people and other dogs. He is a very happy boy…
