Shepherd (Shep) is a small 20 pound beagle who was rescued by Penny Angels Beagle Rescue on his last day at a high kill shelter in NC. just before Christmas. He had been attacked by another dog, had multiple lacerations and a huge hernia to be repaired. Shep is now facing his second surgery for a "ranula cyst" due to the trauma from the dog attack. It is damage to the sublingual salivary glands or ducts which causes a large swelling under the tongue making it very difficult to eat. Shep is a very adoptable dog but needs this surgery before he can find his loving forever home. Can you help?
Please help by sharing this page. Thank you!
UPDATE: We are devistated to write that after surgery today it was determined that Shep has terminal oral cancer. They removed his tumor and he will return home to live out the rest of his days with his foster family however long that may be. THe rescue would still appreciate any donation you can give to help with this surgery and hospice care. Thank you
