A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Meet Percy, a handsome buff male Cocker Spaniel roughly 8 years old who's had a very sad life. Percy comes to us from a Long Island shelter, where he was turned in as an owner surrender after a bite incident ... a teenager pulled a ping pong ball from his mouth at 1am in the context of a "beer pong" party, so Percy is not to blame. Percy shows signs of such severe neglect that he is considered a cruelty case. Among other things, he is emaciated, around 10-15 pounds underweight. Despite it all, Percy remains very sweet and should make a good family dog, although he will gentle environment with owners who are calm and prepared to handle him gently. He will need lots of TLC, especially in the immediate term. Due to malnutrition, Percy is anemic and also suffers from hypothyroidism. He has a significant heart murmur and will need a full cardiac workup and quite possibly medication. Percy also has cataracts and is in urgent need of a dental. Several tumors have also been spotted that will need to be removed, at which time he will also be neutered. So far he's had shots and his heartworm test and has also been professionally groomed. We are in urgent need of donations to fund Percy's ongoing medical care, which obviously will be extensive. Please donate as generously as you can via paypal to recipient address ... every penny helps. Percy can be placed once fully vetted but needs a special home. If you are able to take Percy in, please click here to submit an online application or email to request one. Please send a little mercy his way ... a big thank you in the meantime from Percy.
