Update: Tyson was recently diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure so he will stay with his foster family for whatever time he has left. :(
Meet Tyson! He was rescued by a good samaritan last year when their neighbor was not caring for him proerly. They nursed Tyson back to health but wanted him to go to a family where he could be provided with the veterinary care that he needed.
Tyson's vet visit was full of information. We learned that he is at least 11 years old. He came in with terrible skin and ear infections which we are currently treating. He had fleas and intestinal parasites, both which have been treated. He unfortunately tested positive for heartworm but the vet doesn't recommend treatment due to his age. He has a heart murmur as well because of this heartworms.
Due to Tyson's advanced age and medical issues, he is considered a "Hospice Foster" meaning his foster home will provide a loving home and keep him happy for as much time as he left. So far he seems unaware he has these health problems and is in good spirits. Please consider making a donation for his care as he will have several follow up vet visits!
Tyson has an amazing personality and temperament wise is a great represenation of the Mastiff breed. He loves meeting new people, being close to his foster parents and of course begging for food at the table. He's getting a lot of TLC in foster care.
It's costly for the rescue to keep up with the monthly expenses for our hospice dogs, please consider a donation for their care!
Tyson is being fostered in Tulsa, OK.
