Thread: Boss Hogg - Foster needed for emaciated boy in Dallas

  1. #1

    Exclamation Boss Hogg - Foster needed for emaciated boy in Dallas

    Boss Hogg is currently at Dallas Animal Services and needs a lot of medical help and a foster willing to give him the time, patience, and attention to help him through it.

    Anyone in DFW interested in fostering him call fill out a foster application through Dallas Pets Alive and mention his name: Foster | Dallas Pets Alive!

    Description:
    A854152: "Boss Hogg", neutered male, Old English bulldog, 6 years, 63 lbs. Came in as a stray on 9/29. This case saddens me. I saw this boy a few months ago (if that) when he was in Lost & Found at DAS and was not in good shape...he needed medical attention and looked similar to how he does now. A citizen adopted him and now he turns up as a stray at the shelter and does not look any better. He is skinny with has hair loss and needs medical attention. Sweet boy who needs help!!

    Here are the most recent notes from the shelter vet:
    His skin issues are from demodex but they have been getting better. Dr. Thorne reported that he has gained 7lbs since he has been here so that is great news! He has also had soft stool while he has been here…so whether that is due to anxiety, internal issues, food choice/allergies…we do not know. He is heartworm negative J There could always be underlying issues that we are not able to detect but I have attached his medical records so that you can see all we have done for him.

    Can you step up to help Boss Hogg?

    Edit: Also, if you'd like to pledge to his care, you can post here and I will report back if he is saved.

    Edit #2: From what I can gather, he ran out of time. Sorry I don't have better news

    Oh my goodness, this poor boy Is there a Bulldog rescue nearby that may be able to take him? Boss Hogg looks like he was starved by his previous owner. Is there interest in Dallas for someone to adopt or foster him? is his post on FB? that will get him more attention. Poor baby.

    @cali baker if I'm reading it correctly, he's already with a rescue/shelter called Dallas Pets Alive and needs a foster home, but if he needs rescue let me know and I'll contact them.

    To clarify, I'm with Dallas Pets Alive (a foster based rescue) and he is not a part of our program yet. He is in Dallas Animal Services (high kill shelter, about 50% kill rate) and if he does not have a foster come forward it is unlikely the shelter will put him up for adoption because of his health. He needs a foster to step up for him to make it out of the shelter and into rescue.

    Thanks!

    I see, so in order to get into the rescue, he first needs a foster. Let's spread the word...anyone in Dallas that can help this little guy??

    Sweet looking boy, he sure needs some TLC. I don't know anyone up there. Does anyone know anyone at Lone Star Bully Rescue? Maybe they can get him before it's too late. Not sure why Dallas Pets Alive doesn't go get him.

    She stated he has to have a foster home to go to before they can pull

    @Kathryn Patterson, anymore updates on Boss Hogg? I'm hoping someone will be able to foster him asap. This guy deserves a chance and a break.

    @2BullyMama...and y'all, what a terrible sight to see, this sweet bully.
    I can't help but cry! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!!
    That face will haunt me, that skeletal frame sickens me.

    Over the week end, my living arrangements blew up and I may be moving.
    Already worried about finding something accomadating Cami...let me think.
    Thank you for the tag, dear Christine...this boy needs help...yesterday!
    Prayers, prayers and more prayers, just want to take him so badly & love on.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
