Marco is not yet ready for adoption. We are still evaluating his personality and addressing his medical needs. An email notification will be sent when he becomes ready for adoption. If you wish to receive the notification, please sign up for our mailing list at the top of the front page of our website. Adoption fees are set at the time a dog goes available and applications can only be submitted at that time. Please follow our website and social media pages for updates on Marco!
Please give an FBV welcome to Marco (formerly known as Stitch)!! He is 1-year-old handsome boy who was surrendered due to issues with regurgitation and seizure-like activity as well as a suspected liver shunt. He was immediately sent to the ER vet upon surrender and was found to have aspiration pneumonia. He was given antibiotics and antiemetics as well as IV fluids. His bloodwork and liver tests were found to be normal and while at the vet, he showed no seizure activity and experienced no regurgitation. He did, however, demonstrate some reactivity to dogs passing by his cage.
Now in foster care, Marco continues to experience no regurgitation and has had no seizure-like activity so far. He is skinny but loves to eat and hopefully, will pack on some pounds soon. He is currently eating smaller meals 3-4 times a day until he has put on some weight. He is still not drinking water from the bowl but is getting some in frozen low sodium chicken/water cubes his foster mom is preparing him.
Marco hates his crate and will bark unless it’s completely covered. He also has no problem going potty in his kennel. He is a marker as well and so will be wearing belly bands for now in his foster home.
Marco is with a fantastic foster home so we have no doubt he will show great improvement. Please follow along for updates on how he progresses in foster care!
We greatly appreciate any and all donations! $400 will help us provide Marco with some basic essentials, such as a harness and leash, as well as help us cover some of his vet bills.
