Update...Beau in OK

Update 8-7-17: This wonderful Cavalier has had his operations and is recovering well. Our sincere gratitude to those of you who contributed to Beau's care. Donations covered $1570 of Beau's vet bills totaling $6264, so if you are able to contribute towards this gap, we and Beau would be grateful. This has been a year of great support, but also extraordinary expenses with many dogs like sweet Beau. We will always take them in though, and get them the care they need!

Here is Beau now that he is recovering well...look for him to be available for adoption in about a month.

Original Post: This is Beau, a sweet 6-year-old boy who was surrendered by his owner due to Beau's skin allergies. It turned out to be a flea allergy and he is now flea-free and no longer scratching or biting and his hair is growing back in.

That was the easiest of his correctable problems. He has very bowed back legs with knees that need surgery so that he doesn’t have pain and can walk and run like a normal dog. He also is 100% blind in the right eye and 70% blind in his left eye, due to hereditary cataracts. This is very disorienting to the poor dog, but fixable.

Consults with the veterinarians have indicated that his knees can be surgically corrected and his eyes have an excellent prognosis for restored vision.

These procedures do cost a lot though and it will take approximately $5500 to do what is required.

Beau is still young and has a strong heart and loving demeanor. He is a perfect gentleman in the house and loves to be near his caregiver. He gets along well with other Cavaliers and people.

Due to his cataracts, he runs into obstacles when he is walking in shadows. He needs assistance to get up and down stairs and furniture currently, but that will change with your help.
