Diesel pulled on my heartstrings, upon receiving his surrender form. You know why? Diesel has been diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy. His seizures are being controlled by phenobarbital. Now this is NOT a death sentence in a canine and it isn’t even an expensive health condition. However, it is a health condition and most people won’t even look any further than this sentence 🙁
But, it’s those that DO continue to read that may be the perfect match for Diesel!! So, here’s his story….CCR was contacted by a vet tech at a vet hospital in MA, at the end of January. Here is what she had to say:
“I work at an emergency vet clinic as a technician. Diesel’s previous owner came in to euthanize Diesel because he had had a seizure. Even after explaining that seizures can be controlled and managed with medication, the owner still wanted to euthanize Diesel. Because we knew Diesel didn’t need to die because of this, I asked him to surrender Diesel to me, and he has been with me since. However, most people that express interest in adopting him are intimidated by his special needs. I work 14 hour days sometimes and am unable to keep him and give him his meds at his appropriate times. He deserves a good home that can give him all the love in the world!”
At 1.5yrs of age, Diesel is dog friendly, large AND small dog friendly. He is also said to be good with children 5yrs +. He is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He was lymes positive but has received treatment.
Diesel WILL need to be on daily meds, but this is no different than popping your dog their glucosamine supplement or their daily vitamin supplement, etc. (besides the fact that he MUST have this medication daily!) **As part of the Silver Paws program, Diesel will be adopted out with a significant amount of his medication**
Let’s all work together to get this handsome baby into a great home!
