8/13/15: Please welcome Obi! Obi was picked up as a stray by animal control in Alabama. His owners knew he was there but they did not want to pay the fine to get him back. A local animal rescuer pulled him from the shelter and brought him to the vet and to her home. She contacted us to take him in. He has a cherry eye and needs to be neutered. He also has untreated dry eye.
We believe he is six years old. He likes other dogs and cats. We have seen him around children over the age of six and he enjoys them.
Update 8/14/15: Obi has elevated kidney enzymes (meaning his kidneys are not working properly). He will spend the next few days at the vet on fluids. We have also started him a prescription diet for kidney care.
Update 8/17/15: Obi’s kidney enzymes were at a good level today! We will check again tomorrow and the next day. If things still look good he will move into his foster home on Wednesday. We will hold off surgery for a few weeks while we monitor him.
Update 9/25/15: Obi lost his battle with kidney failure today. Rest in peace Obi. We will miss you.
