Dog needs help

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 1:21 PM

There's no end to animals in need of friends, medical help, good homes. But this one, on account of my long affinity for smush-faced dogs, touched me. Co-worker Dan Limke told me about Sluggo. Read more about him on the jump.

Sluggo is our latest foster dog -- a nine-month-old English bulldog puppy that was brought to the Jacksonville, Arkansas animal shelter.

They said his mother rolled over on him when he was very young and broke his front legs, and they never got him medical attention. Who knows what really happened, but now Sluggo gets around, but gets really tired fast. He seems happy and not in pain, but as he ages, and gets much heavier, will turn into a problem.

On Monday, Aug. 25, he will be examined by the top orthopedic vet in the state and then we'll find out if he's fixable or not, and at what cost.

We're not sure yet even what the exam and x-ray fees will be - let alone any surgery or treatment - but if you can help, please make a donation to the rescue group behind his case:

217 S Redmond Rd

Jacksonville, AR 72076

...or please see me. I'll make sure you get a reciept (tax


We hope his prognosis is good, and a new owner will certainly have a tough road with his rehab.

We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Some quick ideas on that:
