​A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...

Greetings, All ... I am the Prince of Thieves, so named because I am sure to steal your heart (and quite possibly break it). My story is extremely tragic. I am an 8 year old purebred Cocker Spaniel who was found on Christmas night with my hind legs paralyzed on the streets of New York City. As I could never have walked it myself, it's clear that I was simply dumped where I was found (I am not believed to have been struck by a car). Although to some extent I could drag my belly along using my front legs, my injury had left my hind quarters immobilized. A horrified good samaritan spotted me on the street and brought me to Animal Care and Control of NYC, whereupon the shelter reached out to rescue. As my case was deemed critical, rescue sent me for an immediate MRI, following which I was diagnosed with degenerative disk disease. While my condition in fact merits surgery, it was deemed just too risky a proposition for me given the condition of my heart. I have a ruptured valve and am in really very delicate condition. At this time I am both on heart meds as well as on meds to relieve the inflammation in my spine. Although I am still quite fragile, the meds are working! I am able to stand on my own and with continued rest and rehabilitation am expected to be walking soon. Can you help in my recovery? Donations towards my care are currently being accepted here or via check payable to Abandoned Angels, PO Box 545426, Flushing, NY 11354. Abandoned Angels is a 501(c)(3) corporation, so all donations are tax-deductible! I am in addition seeking a foster home where I can live in security and comfort as I work towards regaining my quality of life. Given my health issues, I may not live to be a geriatric senior but I do still enjoy every day. I love toys, treats and the affection of my people, who remain amazed by my gentle disposition despite all I have been through. If you would like to foster me, please visit click here to complete and return an on-line application.  I am ready for a second chance. Much love ... Prince XXOO
