    @Twice, his breathing does some bad, Buddy has done that before when he was stressed and hot, but after a while he would calm down and quit. Your boy may have an elongated palate or like you said he may have injured himself with the collar. You said "they" can't' get him to the vet until Monday? Who's "they", I thought he was at your house.

    @Twice can't you take him out of that crate? He's really stressed and hot

    @Sherry He's out of the crate now. I have a diaper on Abby "just in case". She finished her heat cycle I think a week ago, she's not swollen anymore but I need to be safe. He isn't trying to mount her in any way but I'm still erring on the side of caution. She's suspender-ed and diapered until further notice.

    @Davidh When I took that godawful collar off his neck I felt a huge lump in his throat. I'm absolutely positive he hurt himself being collared and chained like he was. I went and got him a cheap harness for now and I've wrapped an ice pack around his throat to see if that helps with the swelling.

    "they" are Mid Atlantic Bulldog Rescue. They are going to take him to their doctor so that I don't have to pay for any of this. As of today, he is still a rescue in my care. As soon as we get him back in shape we will start the adoption process.

    He is SO well behaved. I can't believe it. I don't know what these people's problem with him was. I see absolutely no reason at all to have kept him chained outside. He sits when you tell him. He knows leave it. He didn't eat this morning until I told him he could. He didn't pull me on the walk and sat at the door until I told him he could come in.

    Roxy has already put him in his place so he stays out of her way. He's right now drooling all over Giuseppes pants playing on the floor. Abby is sleeping on the couch, he isn't paying any attention to her at all. He did try to show a little toy aggression but I stopped that real quick. He hasn't shown any of it since.

    I'm going to take some pictures in a little bit.

    For me, her name was Abby

    @Tiwce it's usually not the dog that has the problem, it's def the people. Makes us so angry. Thank goodness he's been rescued

    Oh, sorry I forgot about that, duh, I just needed to read the upper post, I'm brain dead today. I hope the ice on his throat will help, and maybe he will calm down later today. He seems like a very good boy and I'm so happy he is in your care. He has a great home now, it's just unbelievable how some people will not take care of a beautiful boy like him. Are they letting you take him to your vet today? @Twice Just curious, because there may be something they can give him to help with his breathing, so he won't get so tired trying to get a breath in. Please keep us posted on his progress.

    no offense meant @LynnA See? In Maine. Otis is a fine, old country name.
    Here in Jersey, Otis is either your local drug dealer or the guy Rocco sends to bust your kneecaps

    We are back from the vet!! He has such heat stress in his throat that everything inside him is almost swollen shut. They put him on oxygen and gave him a sedative to relax and a cortisone shot for the swelling. Tomorrow he starts 10 days of prednisone. He is breathing MUCH healthier now

    But we have some concerns. That lump that I thought was from him pulling against the collar is actually a swollen lymph node. The doctor said that node is 10 times its normal size. It could just be an infection, it could be because his immune system is shot (really?) or it could be lymphoma. She did a needle biopsy and ran a CBC. We should have the results back by Monday.

    He is so stoned from the sedative, I'm almost tempted to put on some Pink Floyd and give him a bag of Doritos

    If anybody ever had any doubt where the money donated to rescues goes... it goes for this. Todays doctor visit alone was over 400.00

    So happy you got him into the vets today, so now maybe he can rest well and start the healing process. I just hope he does not have lymphoma, we will keep our fingers crossed. Hugs to Otis and you.

    me too! I texted her this morning about my taking him in but she was at work and couldn't get back to me until lunchtime. I couldn't just take him on my own because technically he belongs to MABR, not me. As soon as she texted me the ok we ran out.

    I'm hoping for an infection too. She said that maybe with the steroids it will go down on its own.

    OK. Ready for this? We got pictures

    Here he is on the way home from the vet, all stoned out in the backseat of the car

    -imagejpeg_3-jpg -imagejpeg_2-1-jpg -imagejpeg_2-jpg

    Then, we're back home. I imagine he's got the munchies. I grab the sweet potato treats and they all follow me to my chair. I say "ok everybody SIT!" (don't look at my mess, its been a busy few days)
