Leo, Tibetan Mastiff - Jan. 20 Update

Leo is looking good and feeling fine these days, and he is really enjoying the cold and snowy weather! (He stops to munch on some snow every chance he gets) You may remember that Leo was feeling a little down and droopy in his last video since he had just been neutered and had to wear the dreaded cone. Leo is right back to his spunky and playful self again and is loving life. And who can blame him, after seeing where he came from.

You will see in the beginning of this video some pictures that we just received from Tibetan Mastiff Rescue of Leo in his former "home". The cage that Leo was confined to is a little worse than we initially thought, and it seems that there was not even any protection from the elements whatsoever.

Poor Leo was outside in all kinds of weather- heat, cold, rain, didn't matter, this poor guy lived a lonely life in his wire enclosure. We are so thankful that the rescue was contacted about taking Leo and they, in turn, contacted us to help. We can't imagine what life would have been like for Leo had he not gotten out of those awful circumstances when he did.

Leo has put this all in the past and is focusing on his bright future which hopefully, includes getting over his many ailments. His skin is doing so much better already and he is now itch-free! Leo continues on his regimen of medications and is enjoying his baths every other day. His ears are already less red and inflamed and even his eyes are no longer constantly runny. He has a healthy appetite and is keeping busy with lots of exercise daily which includes several walks and playtime, of course.

Leo will be evaluated by both an orthopedic surgeon and an ophthalmologist early next week. We suspect that things may get a little difficult from that point on and that Leo will be undergoing more testing and most likely, a few surgeries. Although the Tibetan Mastiff breed is one of the most expensive in the world, his former owner did not feel it necessary to contribute toward Leo's medical expenses. We are again, relying on the generosity of our donors who contribute to our Res-Q Fund. If you would like to donate toward Leo's care, please make a donation to this very important fund.

Read Leo's story when he first arrived.

Obviously Leo is not available for adoption at this time, as he has a long road to recovery ahead of him, but we will continue to update on him as his condition improves, and as our gentle giant learns to have more and more fun being a silly, loved, cared-for puppy!
