Aldo was found on the streets of Peru with huge facial tumors!
I know these photos are hard to see but please put yourself in his shoes. We must not turn a blind eye to Aldo. He was found lying and waiting to die on the streets of Peru. The team at New York Bully Crew stepped in to save his life!
NYBC said he is riddled with disease that could have been prevented. He has facial masses that have ruptured and is bleeding from his nose. He is severely anemic and has a bacterial infect called ehrlichia which is usually transmitted through bite wounds.
He was rushed to NYBC’s vet partners in Peru. Doctors will start chemotherapy as soon as possible to treat his facial tumors. Vet staff have already started him on pain medications, antibiotics and vitamins supplements. They must resolve the infection before chemotherapy can begin to start treating his facial tumors.
UPDATE 3-19-19: Although Aldo’s appearance is harsh, he is finally strong enough to begin chemotherapy. His biopsy results came back as cancer so now he begins the next phase of his journey. He is having his first treatment right now as Karina (rescuer in Peru) just sent his update. Aldo needed to build his strength before beginning therapy. Please send your love and support as we wait for a positive outcome. Also, please continue to support NYBC save his life!
Update 4-2-19: We have an incredible update on Aldo. He is starting to look like a normal dog again. It's incredible to think that just 4 weeks ago when he was saved by New York Bully Crew from Peru we had no idea if he could make it. Fast Forward to 4 weeks and he looks completely different. His chemotherapy treatments are working incredibly way to treat the tumors that were taking over his entire face. We have several comments calling Aldo "ugly" so I hope those same people see how amazing this boy is looking today! This is why we work as hard as we do! You can still support New York Bully Crew and Aldo. His chemotherapy and care will continue.
New York Bully Crew will be transporting Aldo to the states once he is stable and his facial tumors are treated. He cannot be transported without being treated first. Please consider helping us get Aldo the medical care he needs. We have created a candle collection to help raise the funds for his chemotherapy. Please share his story and purchase your candle to help give Aldo the second chance he deserves.
