This is Kallan, which means Powerful in battle. It's really appropriate as he as a bait dog used in the evil underground world of dog fighting. We recently adopted him from Pitpals.
He has the sweetest nature, which is truly incredible considering where he comes from and what cruelty he had to endure. He's best mates with our other rescue dog, Harley Davidson, and we all LOVE him to bits. He has a gorgeous, cheeky smile too.
Since we've adopted him, he's had a bit of rough time medically speaking. He had a mass from his shoulder/leg area removed. Twice. And one from his nose. Turns out our beloved pitty hasa type of cancer called Mass Cell Tumours.
We're devastated but we're not giving up on him! He's just begun to live a happy and spoilt life and he truly deserves more time to howl at weird and wonderful things, chew our fluffy socks, ride in the car (which he just loves), go with Dad to work and to play with Harley. So much for him still to do!
Our most dedicated Vet and specialist says our boy is still strong enough to get help! So he's booked in for his fist chemo tomorrow while we wait for the medicine to arrive from overseas!!!! Yes we're buying it all the way from overseas because it's nor FAIR to Kallan that it's not available in SA yet.
We've already spent R15K on his ops and treatments - because the medical aid won't pay for it as he was diagnosed during the 30 day waiting period!!! So we're hoping that you who is reading this will help us SAVE KALLAN'S LIFE! He deserves a second chance to life. So please if you can, please help.
Here are some pic of the awesome little guy. ps he's wearing a kids shirt to protect his stitches from his scratching himself. Naughty guy, but he's develop a skin ailment too now.
