AGE: 6 Years Old
Our gorgeous German Shepherd boy was pulled as a New Hope Partner from the Brooklyn ACC. He was found as a stray but has an issue with his rectal area – anal stricture with peri- anal inflammation, this means that his anal area is very swollen, ulcerated and inflamed. It’s a serious condition that most commonly affects German Shepherd Dogs and in this case was left untreated for long, and has progressed. He is now on a trial course of Hydrolyzed food ($145 per bag!), antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory medicine (over $500) to ease his SEVERE discomfort. We are hoping to avoid surgery, but he unfortunately had to be sedated so the vets @sheepsheadbayveterinary could aid in emptying out his bowels, as he can’t go to the bathroom for weeks. He’s been back to the vet twice in one week now while in his foster home, and is still having trouble going to the bathroom normally.
Outside of his medical issue, Finn is a sweet and charming dog who adores everyone, and is looking for his forever family. He likes other dogs, is very gentle and is currently fostered with a young child
