Bane came into the Maple Ridge shelter because of what was suspected to be an abscessed tooth, sent for x-rays no abscess seen. Quickly we saw that he could not walk properly and was in extreme pain. He went into foster with a local vet who could not figure out what was wrong with him with further x-rays and pain control. Was sent for an MRI which determined that he has intervertabral disc disease in his c2 to c3 spinal cord. Otherwise known as Wobblers disease. Disc extrusion and spinal cord compression. This is an extraordinarily painful problem, but thankfully treatable.
Bane will require the damaged disc to be removed to stop the pain, it's expensive, but this sweet little dog deserves a chance.
Even when Bane is having one of his extreme pain episodes, he still wags his tail and looks for comfort and affection. He is the most loving and trusting little guy. He likes hopping up into the laps of staff so he can get a hug and give a kiss. He is only 7 years young, and still has such a long pain free life ahead him once he gets this life changing surgery. He is so affectionate. He loves people, other animals, and children. He's just a little shadow of any human who he can love.
We love all the animals that walk (or limp) through the doors, but Bane has a special place in our hearts and we know he is meant to bring great joy to someone's life. Please help him get to that person by donating to his surgery today.
