Is this not the cutest little boy?? When we first picked up Sawyer, his foster mom noticed that he acted a bit “weird.” Nothing major, but weird symptoms that might mean diabetes, throid problems or even the dreaded Cushings disease. Or, it could be nothing and “weird” is normal for me. We ran a bunch of tests, and thankfully, ruled out the really bad things, but the cost exceeded the estimate and we really need a bit more funding to pay his bill.
Thank you to Janet T., Patty S., Lori U., and Patty D., for their generous donations of $150. We still need $635 in his fund. If you’d like to contribute to the fund for Sawyer’s diagnostic tests, please CLICK HERE to contribute via Paypal or HERE to send him a check.
Here’s Sawyer’s introduction:
Let me introduce myself, I am Sawyer. My foster mom says I look like a little stuff toy, very cute if I have to say so myself. I was not properly cared for in my previous life, but I am making up for that now and enjoying all the TLC I am getting! One of my favorite things to do is to cuddle with my foster mom and nest in my bed. And boy, I do love to sleep! I am potty trained to the doggie door and I will let you know when the doggie door is closed. I get along with other dogs as long as they don’t get in my face and I don’t mind cats. When I am not napping, I like to play with stuff toys and go for walks. My foster mom said I was very skinny when she first got me and I must have enjoyed all the scrumptious food, because now I need to loose a few pounds. The walks should help with that. I am a big boy and sleep in my dog bed at night, but I do have fears of being in small places so crates and car rides are not good for me.
Sawyer is approximately 9 or 10 years old. He has limited vision due to a dry eye condition that was not properly treated, and he will need daily eye drops (twice a day) for the rest of his life. He gets around good for having limited vision and some hearing loss. Numerous tests have been done on Sawyer and they have all come back negative. The vet has come to the conclusion that Sawyer has some neurological issues, but with the right medicine, he will be a happy dog. Sawyer is a very sweet dog that deserves a better life than what he had. He will need to go to a special home that can give him lots of love and care. If you want to add a laid-back, sweet lap dog to your family than Sawyer would be your guy.
