On Saturday April 7, 2018, our beautiful big brother Rex joined our family. At the age of 14 years old he was abandoned in the streets in Portugal by the husband of the owner after she passed away from cancer. So very sad and heartbreaking…
Shelter Bianca, the organization that rescued me too, took care of him and arranged his travel home to us.
Rex has Ehrlichiosis and Babesia for which he receives treatment. He also has cataracts and a heart murmur. Because he has some problems with walking, especially his left hind leg is in bad shape, we made extra x-rays. These showed that the left hock joint is completely loose and this explains the way he walks. We will look into the option of a brace to support his leg.
He is a beautiful dog and he has such a gentle heart and soul. We will do everything for him to give him the best life ever! ♥
