Who else has a HUGE heart for senior dogs? Sure, puppies are cute. But seniors touch our hearts differently! Meet Henry. He is one of the surrenders from the Canadian Animal Task Force clinic last weekend (Nov. 1 to 3). He is currently getting a mass in his face biopsied. OH Henry, we are rooting for you. Our fingers and paws are crossed for a happy outcome!
Update on Henry.
Well it’s been a couple weeks since I arrived in to SCARS’ care. I wanted to say I’m really enjoying my foster home. They give so many pets and if I want more all I have to do is tap on their hand with my paw and I get more! I have started going on two slow, short walks a day, and I’m so happy when it’s walk time! I have a foster brother and sister here too who keep me company. We are all a little cautious around each other but we are starting to warm up to each other. The results of the biopsy haven’t come back yet but I am comfortable and able to eat without a problem! I’ve heard my foster mom mention that I’m such wonderful dog with a lot of personality. I know I’m an older guy but I have so much love to give. I cannot wait to find my furever home!
October 27 Henry Update. Hi everyone! Well, I got the results back from the biopsy and the vet says I have cancer. It’s a low grade soft tissue sarcoma. What this means is it is a slow growing cancer. The vet thought about removal of the tissue, but that would leave a large gap on my face, if it was even possible. So now I am looking for a very special someone to take me into their home and let me enjoy the rest of my time being loved and spoiled. I don’t know if my time is long or short. I love my foster family, they give me love and attention. That’s all I really want. Right now I am on pain medication and will be for the rest of my life. As life goes on, I may need an increase in the pain medications to keep me comfortable. I’m looking for a quiet home, that knows I may need some special attention. I hope to meet you soon.
December 7…. Henry was adopted, but we got this sad update today
“It is with a very heavy heart that I share the passing of Henry. The tumor had grown & ruptured in his mouth yesterday. Though our time together was short, he quickly became family. He LOVVVVED breakfast! (It was raw for breakfast & kibble for supper). He enjoyed being brushed, and looked forward to our twice a day walks. He was walking just over 1km each walk x 2 and lost 10 lbs. He his favorite place was around Dan & myself. He loved floor snuggle time & peanut butter. I’d like to Thank you & your team for Henry. I am sad that we had such a short time with him but feel blessed that we did have the time with him.
With a heavy heart” We are so thankful that he found love in his final weeks. Thank you to Sybilla & Dan for loving him beyond measure.
