Charlie, an 8 year old Dachshund, was recently found stray in Nashua and i brought him to my house where he’s been receiving lots of love and care as i am pet lover, but he needs more help. Charlie's rear legs are paralyzed likely caused by extensive chronic disc disease, which is often seen in this breed and he needs both spinal x-rays to confirm the diagnosis. In addition this little guy needs surgery on his left eye as he’s suffering from something commonly called “cherry eye,” which is a small red mass in his eye that impairs his vision. The mass is a prolapsed tear duct and can only be surgically repaired by a specialist. He also has severe dental disease.
In the short time Charlie has been with me at my home, we’ve seen his zest for life regardless of his hardships. He is happy, enjoys cuddling in his blankets, and loves being around people. We can’t wait to see how much his personality shines once we’re able to provide him the care he needs.
The use of Charlie's rear legs likely will not return, but thanks to a local New Hampshire company, HandicappedPets.com, he has received a free wheelchair to help him regain his mobility. With one problem solved, we’re reaching out for support to help cover the cost of the eye and dental surgeries. We need to raise at least $3,500.00 for the surgeries and x-rays.
It's a humble request to please share it as much as you can!
