Conway was found with a nail in his stomach in freezing weather.
We have created these animal saving products to save a dog named Conway. Our partners at The Arrow Fund spent all day transporting this gentle giant to the Emergency Vets. As temperature plummet a completely starved dog was found abandoned. He had been shot with a pellet gun and a nail is embedded in his colon. He is dehydrated and has a mass in one lung.
Although Conway seems to be a very old pup he is estimated to be only 5 years of age and has lived a life of PURE HELL! How this boy in this condition survived these temperatures is a miracle. He would not have survived another night.
Today Conway will see the Internal Medicine Team at Blue Pearl Hospital. We have been told an Advanced CT Scan will be performed. This will be to help identify the mass.
Regarding the nail is in his colon. There is always a chance it can perforate the colon. Sadly, starving dogs will eat anything to fill their bellies.
UPDATE 2-4-19: Conway is now in a Medical Foster Home with Jamie and Mychell Lawson while awaiting the results of the fungal test to see if he has Blastomycosis, a fungal disease. These results take about a week. Doctors are desperate to find out what that baseball sized mass in his lungs is. Visually, most would guess he’s probably 12+ yrs old. Shockingly, he is 5 years old.
UPDATE 2-20-19: I have some heartbreaking news. Conway, an animal we launched with you all last week, was diagnosed with cancer. The tumor that was removed from his lung tested positive for cancers which mean he will now enter the hospice program with The Arrow Fund. The Arrow Fund told us that he will be spoiled every single day for as along as they have him. They are asking for your love and prayers.
His tumor was originally believed to be a fungal mass but after lab work was ran is when doctors informed The Arrow Fund that it is cancer.
The Arrow Funds focus will be on quality of life. Please know that rescuers are heartbroken and they need your support now more than ever. His care will continue to be costly for the arrow fund so I ask that you please help this very deserving pup.
We have created the animal saving products you see below to help raise the funds to cover his care. We ask that you consider purchasing one of these items and help support our partners at The Arrow Fund save his life.
