Meet "Charlie" ~ The Second Rescued Dog
After we had a vet look at him, we discovered he has testicular cancer, and needs medical help. We are praying we can get his weight up enough to withstand surgery in a week. Then we will be able to test for heartworm and to check of the cancer spread to his lungs or not.
Looking at Charlie today, you'd never know he was sick. Unless you looked at him from behind that is. He is full of energy today and is very alert. Last night when I was petting his head, then stopped, he pushed his head under my hand for more. He's definitely been someone's dog, and a neglected one at that. The owner may have not had the money to care for him, or the owner could have just not cared too. Either way, Charlie is now being cared for by us, regardless of the situation. He has no way to defend himself, nor care for himself. He's relying on us now.
We are taking it one day at a time. We are praying he does not have heart worm either.
