Available for Adoption: Bo
Sweet Bo was found standing in the middle of the road one cold winter day in November, and thankfully his finder was willing to take him home to safety. She made him up a warm bed and got some food in him and then called the number on his collar.
Bo’s owner recently moved out of state and left him with an acquaintance where he thought he would be okay. Turned out the acquaintance did not take him inside at night even though it was below freezing, and were not keeping him safely contained. The owner surrendered him to the finder and asked her to find him a better home. She contacted For Pets’ Sake and we got him to to the vet.
They think he’s about 10 years old. His rear knees are very enlarged and they’re not sure why. It could be from a previous trauma or perhaps it’s genetic. At this point there’s nothing that can be done to correct them, but we’ve got him on some pain meds in hopes that he can be a little more comfortable. He gets around okay, but has a stiff gait that appears uncomfortable.
