Mister BDBD is a senior dog who has faced one of the worst cases of neglect we have seen
We have created this coffee mug campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a very badly abused senior dog.
We are working with Synergy Rescue and Rehab to help them save a dog who was badly abused and neglected. Just take one look at his photos and you can see a very broken dog. They have named the special dog "Mister BDBD" which stands for ( Beautiful Dog By Default ). He is a 16 year old Chihuahua/Mix. Thanks to the quick action of rescuers he was transported from a shelter in Los Angeles straight to an emergency vet who is capable of caring for his high needs. He was immediately stabilized.
The list of medical needs is high with this very special dog. From years of malnourishment he has elevated kidney and liver values and is anemic. He has a cataract in his right eye and some sort of defect in his left eye, neither of which is causing any pain. Yes, he is completely blind although he does not care! Along with missing his bottom jaw he does not have any teeth left in his mouth.
Only bone fragments remain in his lower jaw. Simply put his mouth rotted away. His dental disease was so severe it spread to the bone which ultimately caused it to fracture. His rescuers said his body may be broken but his spirit is not. This is by far the worst case of neglect and abuse we have seen all year.
UPDATE 9-25-18: Mister BDBD's foster writes that he is doing well. He sleeps most of the day because eating tires him out. Because he has no jaw his foster feeds him multiple times throughout the day. He's eating some yummy soft foods and vitamins and supplements. Their main goal is getting him to gain weight. Please continue to support Mister BDBD. His care is extensive and expensive for his rescue.
UPDATE 10-5-18: His lab recheck came back a Little wonky showing that he still has a anemia. Although it has improved it is still not as good as doctors would like. His kidney values are also not great. Doctors are trying a diet change.
The most exciting news is that he received what is called a Halo. This is a device for blind dogs to wear and it protects their head from bumping into things and gives the pup more confidence especially in new places. This Halo is essential for his continued care. His Halo has a baseball theme to it.
