We were notified yesterday of a very sad situation that has occurred here in Texas with a rescuer that works with many large-breed rescue groups having passed away at his property. In his care at the time were over 50 dogs who had been without food or water for about a week with his passing. Liz Robles of Cane Corso rescue immediately mobilized her network of friends, volunteers and other rescue groups like us to get to these dogs immediately and begin triage. We found out that there was a 10-year-old female Dogue de Bordeaux named Miley Moo that was in the home with this rescuer when he passed, and she was alive and needed to be rescued. We were told that she was a very sweet girl and of course we said that we would help with her. We knew that there were many other dogs in need on the property and if we could help with another couple of them then we would be happy to do so. This morning Travis and Ricky made the trip down to meet with Liz on the property and were so happy to meet this old girl and Travis texted us that she was a wild and silly girl! She is overweight despite the last week of no food, and it is suspected that she may have a thyroid issue so we will get Dr. Reno on that Monday. In addition to Miley Moo, Travis and Ricky took in an older English Mastiff girl and a neutered, mixed breed boy who I will introduce separately.
Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Miley Moo!
Miley Moo is a very old happy silly girl and will be heading for surgery to remove a large rectal mass very soon. We thought it would be best if she went to stay in a foster home before and after so Cassandra has taken her home. As you can see she’s not one bit stressed out about that.
Miley Moo started to have some blood from her rectum. Dr Reno took a look at her and found a pretty big mass further down in her rectum and will require the surgeon to remove it and find out that it is. Of course it’s worrisome but we won’t get ahead of ourselves and will wait and see.
