One Planet Rescue receives emails daily about innocent dogs and cats who end up in shelters awaiting their fate! One of the recent emails we received was about Chuy. Chuy the Chow was surrendered on Jan 17th because of a medical condition on his nose and eyes. He was only given 5 days before being put to sleep. He’s about 5 years old and his medical issue is treatable. They were looking for a 501c3 Rescue to take him on as a kind human and her family had offered to foster him. We are useless without foster homes but with Debra & Jared’s kind offer on the table, how could we say no?! I arranged to meet the family and once we were assured of their commitment, we arranged to go over to the shelter to have their dog meet Chuy. It all went well and we are happy to report Chuy is now home with Debra & pack! Chuy has ulceration and scabbing around his eyes and nose (suspect immune-mediated skin disease such as pephmigus foliaceous), he is an apparent owner surrender due to his health issues. We took him straight to Dr Gonzalez of Kirkwood Animal Hospital for a cytology test and a full blood panel test. They sent us home with some prednisone and 2 kinds of antibiotics. We will keep an eye to see if the medication helps relieve the inflammation and if not, we will schedule a biopsy. We later took him to @petfoodexpress for a good brushing and bath. He settled in his new digs and had a good night’s sleep. Debra and family tell us they already fell in love with little man Chuy! We couldn’t be happier for him. Thank you to every one who helped spread the word about him. Thanks to Armani of @bravedogsadvocacy & Robin of a Southern California based chow rescue for always looking out for the innocent canines on death row.
