Obi came into rescue in mid August, 2015. He had been pulled from the shelter by an independent rescuer in Alabama to save him from the unthinkable. You see, Obi’s owners knew he was at the shelter but wouldn’t pay the shelter fees to get him out.
The rescuer knew that Obi needed specialized care and contacted GEBR.
Obi needed general bulldog medical care but on initial bloodwork was found to h…ave some degree of kidney failure. This was temporarily corrected with fluids and a renal diet. These measures improved his condition but the improvement was only temporary, his kidney failure progressed. His condition deteriorated quickly and he was suffering.
We had to make the dreaded decision to end Obi’s suffering on Friday morning.
Obi was a lovebug, we wish we could have gotten to you sooner big boy. But, in the end, it’s not the quantity of time you’re with us but the quality of that time.
He was loved, he was cherished and at the end he was surrounded by those who loved him.
Please keep the Wilkins family in your thoughts and prayers, Obi’s foster family who stood beside him until the end.
