Spotlight Romeo – Update 2

Update from Romeo’s foster mom:

Romeo had a checkup at the vet.  I was able to get a couple of photos.  You can see the puncture wound in his upper thigh.  There is a corresponding puncture on the other side.  The redness and swelling are going down, which is great news!  Romeo got to spend a little time in the yard, which he loved!  You can see from the photos that the puncture wounds are starting to heal.  Romeo is feeling almost frisky again and is officially the Backyard Jungle King!  He is still limping, and I have to be very careful when I pick him up, as his torso is still very bruised and sore.  He is such a little piglet.  He never loses his appetite!  He says to tell you thank you for your generous donations!

Spotlight Romeo – Update 1

Update from Romeo’s foster mom

Romeo was a good boy at the vet.  They got him all stitched up.  He has several puncture wounds and the cut on his belly that all need time to heal.  He is having a tough time walking as he is pretty stiff and sore.  He is on good meds and I am going to be keeping him quiet and still for a while.  He is spending quiet time in the bathroom, which he hates!  But Romeo is glad to be home!  Romeo says thank you for your help!

   

Spotlight – Romeo Needs Your Help

This little senior guy is Romeo and he was found wandering around all alone. His finder, a very kind man, took Romeo to a local vet to have him scanned for a microchip. Romeo did have a microchip and his owner was contacted. When contacted, he said he didn’t want Romeo anymore because he was old. The kind man who found Romeo took him home with him. He contacted Russell Rescue for help and when a foster home opened up, Romeo became one of us. He has been in a foster home for a few months now.

Recently, Romeo got into a fight with another dog in his foster home and ended up getting bit in multiple places. Romeo needs your help. Can you help us pay for the medical attention Romeo needs? As you can see from the photo below, he has a horrific cut on his tummy.
