This little baby is missing one eye and we are currently fighting to save the other one. Marley is small and sweet boy and he is trying to learn how to live with humans and with other dogs even thought his eye sight is impaired.
Marley went for his heart examination last week and he has been diagnosed with some mild to moderate problems. He was given Cardisure and boy, is it difficult to get him to take the tablets! He is just like a cat, licks around the tablet and spits the tablet out.
He is feeling rather poorly right now as he has chronic bronchitis and it’s hard to get him to eat. He just can’t seem to catch a break. More than this, while we were looking at his x-ray we noticed he has at least four shots (bullets) in him.
Who on earth shoots at a dog!?!?!
Marley is going to need long term care and we will soon be putting him into our new Virtual Adoption program. If you would like to support Marley or any of our other critters we would be glad of any donation towards their care ❤
We can’t do what we do without you ❤
UPDATE: 28. 2. 2021
A few months ago a young couple contacted us, they were interested in adopting Marley 💞
As you know, Marley has had many health problems since he arrived at Cool Critters and over the months he has been here we have slowly brought him back to be as healthy, as he possibly could be for a dog of his age. (We joke that he is 100 years old!).
Galen and Lana’s main concern with adopting him was the cost of his vet treatment and check ups. With a bad heart, bad eyes and other problems, the cost could soon be beyond their ability.
But, what they could offer Marley, was his own retirement home and a whole lot of love 💕
So, we decided that the best for Marley was for Galen and Lana to become ‘Permanent Fosters’. The same as adoption but we take the worry out of any vet expenses by covering them for Marley.
Marley is now in his new home, enjoying the sofa and the undivided attention of two wonderful humans. Thank you so much guys and give Marley a big old scratch from us 🥰
