Three-week-old Buckeye was brought into the shelter as a stray. The Good Samaritan found Buckeye alone at a park. Buckeye has a missing back left leg due to unknown causes. It looks like something chewed it off. He will be having an amputation once he is stable. He is barely a pound a just about 3 weeks old.
Dallas DogRRR immediately took Buckeye to the emergency vets. He has a severe number of hookworms and deworming has already begun. He was covered in fleas as well.
Doctors immediately started him on IV fluids and dextrose to perk him up. They did get some bloodwork and he is anemic. Doctors are watching him very closely. He is still hanging on like a trooper. He was strong enough to pull his catheter out and he is still receiving IV medications. He is being treat for pain and the heavy burden of worms.
Buckeye has a long road to recovery. Surgery is likely in his future. We have created this campaign to raise the funds needed for his medical care. With every purchase of a hoodie, tee, necklace, blanket, tote and more, you can help save Buckeye.
