Bogart Boy! The scars that cover his entire emaciated body hint at the life Bogie had before he was saved by us.
Bogart was a street dog and we had gotten a call to help a starving, emaciated dog who was spotted for weeks out. We set a trap and noticed something vert disturbing on our camera footage. Bogart’s penis was fully degloved, had open wounds on it and he was in a critical state as he must be caught or he could face an amputation or death of the exposed organ.
Patiently we waited and for two days hoped this emaciated boy would go in and finally he did. We immediately took him to the shelter to register him as a stray in the event he had an owner and to get immediate ER attention. He was dehydrated, went on IVS, antibiotics and other meds while the doctor and staff desperately tried to help fix his penis and save it. Finally after a few days the skilled vet was able to work the skin over and fix his injury that was a result of some unknown trauma. He has scars all over his head, legs and body, one of his ears is shredded and is heartworm positive. Despite all of this he is a sweet, gentle boy and nervous. Bo needs a loving, calm home as an only dog. He has been torn up so much we want this senior boxer mix boy estimated +/- 9 years to live out his final years ensconced in love and peace. Loud noises startle him and even something as simple as throwing a ball made him run and try to scale a fence as he was startled. He needs a secured, fenced yard and a quiet/low key home. Bogart has a long way to go but he is doing remarkably well for all he has endured.
He had a temp foster for a few days and he insisted on laying on the bed by her feet♥️ He loves a lot of soft blankets and cozy beds…the more the better!
IMMEDIATE FOSTER NEEDED as him as an only and an ADOPTER NEEDED.
Bogart is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines, adoption fee is $300
