BHRR's Bishop – 15 month old Male Merle GD, emaciated – max. 2.5/10 body score, good with dogs and cats, loves kids, no issues with women and was 'indifferent' to men(yet, the shelter noted two incidents of him being scared of men), was an outside dog yet we have been told he is housebroken(proven to be this way to date), was on metronidazole for 5 days and is on Sulfatrim for a baceterial infection for 14 days(yet no specifications made as to what type of infection – UTI? Ear? Tye of Pneumonia are all things Sulfratrim can be used for). Most likely for the mass on his left front foot though. The home that brought him to the shelter said they were moving and said they got him through an internet ad. This was at least his second home at such a young age., NOT to mention the home he was bred at.
From the Shelter & The 2 Shelter Vets –
"We did a cytology of the mass and determined that it is likely inflammatory (little cellularity). This means a non-malignant mass that could result from an old wound or abscess. It does not look like a granuloma; the dog has not been licking it. We would not treat this mass but we cannot provide any guarantees as to how long it will take and if it will disappear fully. Given the age of the dog, and the fact he is not licking it or limping, the prognosis is good. Dr Saucke or myself (Dr Tacium)"
He arrived to BHRR yesterday. We were contacted to assist him last week. He was not doing very well in the shelter yet, we needed an adoption to go through before we had the spot. With BHRR's Emmett's adoption, we could move forward in bringing whom we are calling BHRR's Bishop into BHRR.
Below is a slide that I put together of BHRR's Bishop. As I posted yesterday on our BHRR FB page, he has several qualities that remind me of BHRR's Veteran. I even have a photo almost identical to one I have of BHRR's Veteran of head lowered and eyes up. He is 'bluffy' a bit on the outside trying to show he is confident just as BHRR's Veteran was and a real 'scared' wee thing on the inside. 🙁 He will get there.
He is the TENTH case of emaciation that BHRR has assisted in 2012. 🙁
He needs structure and patience plus consistency and obedience under a firm yet very positive loving leadership hand.
