Hi guys, I will try to greatly condense this! I have had an incredible 15 month old dog for 4 weeks now. I got him from a man who had him for 6 weeks and had adopted him from a rescue. He did not want to return to rescue as he said he could not bear the (very large) dog being in a cage all day. I asked for medical records, he did not have them, but told me the dog was in perfect health. I noticed the dog had something going on with his eye and asked the man who said he never noticed. I researched and found out it is a corneal dermoid. Also noticed the dog’s gait was a bit off. I found out it is going to cost over $2000.00 to repair the dermoid. Insisted on medical records, finally got them. The vet the rescue used to examine the dog mentioned the dermoid and also right front paw has valgus deformity. What the heck? I thought when a rescue took in a dog, they provided all needed medical care before adopting that dog out... I really love this dog, but I in no way can pay these medical bills… is this how a rescue works? Plus, I would greatly appreciate any advice...thank you!!!
