Meet handsome Sebastian! He has been getting lots of love as he kicked heart worm butt! He did great with treatment. The next step is finding out if anything can be done to help his eyesight. Sweet baby has juvenile cataracts and is blind. We have an appointment next week to find out more. See update below.
A little background. This adorable 6 year old was found as a stray, very emaciated and sick with heartworms. The vet was not sure if he would make it but he thrived with love and care of the vet staff. Once he improved, he went to foster home but sadly it didn't work out because he chased the cat! Yes, blind dog chases cat, wish I could have seen it! That is how he ended up at my cat free home and I am so glad he is here. At first he bumped into everything so my friend nicknamed him Bumper! After couple of weeks he figured it out. He is 10 lbs heavier, healthy and happy.
Sebastian has successfully completed cataract surgery! An update from his foster Mom: I want to thank everyone at DFW Cocker for all they have done for Sebastian. They spent so much time and money on saving his life long before he came to stay with us. Once he was healthy enough, they have been there for me through his HW treatment and cataract surgery. Now this beautiful one eyed baby will soon be ready for adoption! Once the doctor releases him we have a small amount of training to work on then he will be ready to find his forever home.
If you would like to meet Sebastian, please complete our adoption application and put his name at the top. http://dfwcockerrescue.org/
