I wish I had better news to impart re: BHRR's Timon. 🙁 This is the DDB where he possibly been hit by a car and never treated for his eye and leg etc.

Dr. Javinsky did the doppler ultrasound on BHRR's Timon today and the diagnosis is very severe Subaortic Stenosis (SAS).

Due to the severity, there is no surgical option for him(additionally surgery has not been proven in studies to date to improve/prolong quality of life) and beta blockers were not recommended either by Dr. Javinsky due to BHRR's Timon's particular case.

BHRR has had several dogs throughout the years with SAS and BHRR's Timon's is the worst case that we have seen.

We shall give him quality of time and are aware that he can begin to have fainting spells and could pass away at any time suddenly.

Right now, he is a very happy and full of life boy and as time is of the most urgent for him, if any of our approved homes, are open to visitations with him, to show him love and spoiling, do email contactbhrr@gmail.com

Here is some INFORMATION for those who are not familiar with SAS.

My heart is heavy…………..he is such a great dog! SUCH a great dog! Many were able to meet him at the Pet Valu recently.

"MASTIFF MAGICAL MEMORY MOMENTS" Movement for him. For two are French Mastiffs and one is an Argentine Mastiff. :) I will create an album on our BHRR FB Page and also share.

NONE of these dogs had any life prior to being rescued and I, for, one am going to give them the world…AND asking for a wee bit of help, just as I did with BHRR's Concert to help give it to them…..

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, if anyone is up to a visit, hollar – EMAIL or call (613) 725-4279 or PM me……….I already have one home that said they just had to be the first!  BHRR's Concert and I travelled over 4,500 KMs in 42 days……I hope to double or triple that or more for these three lovelies!
