Instead of finding out what treatment would be best for Charlie, his previous owner brought him to the vet to be euthanized.
Thankfully, the vet knew that Charlie had a fighting chance, and refused to euthanize him. The vet contacted AMA Animal Rescue for help, and together, they were able to convince the owner to surrender Charlie into AMA’s care.
AMA got right to work in figuring out a plan to save Charlie, since he had a plethora of health issues. He was severely matted, had infected eyes, loss of tear production, cryptorchidism, and a severe skin infection with ulceration and erosion of his periocular tissue.
Needless to say, Charlie was in a lot of pain and needed some relief as soon as possible, vets began treating him for his different ailments.
One of AMA’s previous adopters, who also happened to work at the vet’s office who was caring for Charlie, agreed to foster him. But during his recovery, she began to fall in love with him and knew she couldn’t part ways with him.
She decided to permanently adopt him and give him a loving forever home! Charlie now has a doggy sibling, Brownie, who he quickly became best friends with during his recovery.
