This is O.B.
Our New Year's Baby
When we ring in a new year, we always hope it's going to be a good one.
But the fact of the matter is, it's up to us to make it good. And if things go wrong, we just have to do all we can
to make them right again.
Like with O.B. here…
He was surrendered to a local shelter just two nights ago. He had an
elderly owner that couldn’t take care of him anymore. A family member dropped him off like it was garbage day. No tears.
No desire to undo all that's been done.
What he left behind for someone else to fix was a severely neglected 9-year-old dog.
Weighing in at over 68lbs, he's the most obese beagle we've ever taken into our rescue.
But his weight is just one of
the many things that went wrong for O.B.
His nails are so badly overgrown that some had literally
become imbedded in the pads of his feet.
Both ears are afflicted by a condition commonly known
as cauliflower ear which involves severe and often painful swelling brought on by chronic allergies or infection. In some
cases, surgery is required to correct it.
Both eyes are afflicted by Cherry Eye.
An elongated skin tag hangs from his belly and drags on the ground when he walks.
And all 4 paws are swollen and inflammed by untreated Dermatitis likely the result of a food allergy.
But O.B. is NOT a lost cause.
And not just because we're
here now to make everything right again…thanks to your support.
no matter how good our intentions, it wouldn't mean much if O.B. didn't have any hope for the future.
O.B. is not a lost cause because O.B. is overflowing with hope.
I knew it
the moment we met.
Beagle Kisses reveal so much.
