Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Fremont was brought to us today by another wonderful rescuer from NM. He is currently at our vet, spending the night in anticipation of surgery tomorrow. * More on that later.
Fremont is a 7 year young Great Dane that had been hit by a car in Jan 2016. He suffered a broken pelvis and a dislocated hip. He was taken to a local vet in NM, who did exrays and told his previous owner that nothing could be done. Fremont would lie in a concrete kennel for the next 5 days, without receiving any further vet care.
Fremont was then taken back to his residence and has been suffering ever since. He can barely walk, and his long-ago-broken-leg is useless. The leg he does use (with the dislocation of the hip) is getting weaker all the time.
A few weeks ago he started dribbling blood from his penis, which indicates prostate enlargement (hence one reason we advocate for the neutering of male dogs).
So, he was finally given permission to come to El Paso under the care of Great Dane Rescue.
As stated previously, Fremont is at our clinic right now. The vets will do everything they can to get this boy healthy, happy, and comfortable, and we will continue his care for the rest of his life. (That is, unless some awesome person is wanting to adopt this wonderful, sweet, affectionate boy - but we know that's just not very likely).
As with sharing our happy adoption stories with you, every now and then we feel compelled to share the stories of those whose outcome may not be as such.
With the expertise of our vets at East El Paso Animal Hospital, we will care for Fremont from here on out.
As you kneel tonight for the needy and neglected animals everywhere, please include Fremont in your prayers. He is a very special boy who really needs and deserves the very best of care.
"Feel It For Fremont".
