FLINT - d.o.b 22/9/2018 - BRISBANE
Flint is a Gladstone Bully that was identified as having a hole in his heart. Flint has had a prognosis that could give him 5 to 6 years. Due to the ongoing medical reviews and constant monitoring of any new symptoms that arise with Flint, we have decided to give him a permanent foster carer to live with but rescue will continue to be involved with this little handsome guy.
This gorgeous 7-year-old young at heart pup was abandoned on the streets by his original owners :-( but his local community fell in love with him anyway and feed and looked after him until help arrived. He spent 4 weeks in Redland City shelter, where he was examined by their vet and found to have heartworm amongst other issues. The shelter decided that they couldn’t treat Logan so was going to put him to sleep, but Ashly, the pound officer couldn’t bear to see such a lovely young man put to sleep so she contacted us and asked if we could take him on.
The BTRA team jumped straight into action trying to secure a safe haven for Logan. That safe haven came in the way of Erin and her family who have stepped up to foster this gorgeous boy.
We are happy to say that this young man was collected from the pound today by our wonderful board member Michele. Michele booked him straight into her vets to see what we could do to relieve the pain Logan was in. On examination the vet found that Logan’s ears were dirty and swollen that he also needed dental treatment, he also had a cough and of course his heartworm needed treating. He will also need de-sexing. So all in all this poor fellow was not in the best of health. But through all this he is still a happy friendly young man.
The team at BTRA would like to say a big thank you to Erin and her family who will be fostering Logan along his long road to recovery.
