So close, yet so heartbreakingly far ....
A few months ago this handsome Spaniel cross, Tinker, was abandoned in the mountains by hunters in a very poorly state. He was rushed to an animal hospital and treated for anaemia, malnutrition and Erleichia. Tinker was lifeless and emaciated. He also tested as Leishmania positive. Tinker made a slow but steady start to recovery and he was lucky enough to be offered a loving foster here to complete his recovery. Weight gain was very slow, but his energy levels were radically improved and Tinker proved to be a very loving and playful boy. A few weeks ago I took Tinker for repeat bloods in the hope he may be fit enough for castration however the results were not as expected. After more extensive testing, we learnt Tinker's kidneys are not functioning very well and that he may be suffering from Chronic Kidney Failure :( Tinker had a bright future awaiting him in the UK and this news was just devastating as he must now remain here in Cyprus.
Tinker is not suffering or in pain. He is full of life and loves his foster mummy dearly. He is learning to play, retrieve and live together with dogs and cats. We will be monitoring his health with regular blood tests and supporting his kidney function. If a difficult decision needs to be made regarding his life quality one day, we will make it, but for now Tinker is happy <3
Tinker has been offered permanent foster so that he may live out his life in a loving home and continue to experience the joys of being a 'pet' dog. However we are in need of a little help to support Tinker .... Would anyone like to donate any food or support towards this special boy's monthly costs? He may not be flying to the UK to be adopted but he does deserve a happy life, however long that may be. We never expected such a heartbreaking turn of events for Tinker but we still want him to have the best of everything x
