The Faceless Dog Suffering From Head Trauma
UPDATE 12/10: Dicken's CT & Testing show a transmissible venereal cancerous tumor with a major secondary infection. The good news both of these but the bad news if the infection has eaten away the bone matter on his nose. Unfortunately we can not repair the damage but good news is we can reconstruct his skin once we treat the cancer. He will never have a functioning nose but he will be able to function and live a good life. He will breathe using his mouth and as long as he responds well to the antibiotics and chemotherapy.
UPDATE 12/23: Dickens is here at his foster home! What a sweetheart he is. He has a happy tail, loves to be pet and enjoys a good meal. Oh yeah, and treats too. He’s settled in nicely and in the first 15 minutes was happily laying on his new bed and playing with some soft stuffy toys. Yes, he does have eyes and he can see, however due to the swelling in his face he probably doesn’t see very well. That should improve as the swelling goes down and the infection clears. He has a long way to go so prayers and donations will be appreciated.
