What is crowdfunding?

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Bobby is the runt of a litter of 9 pups who has now been diagnosed with Ectodermal dysplasia which has similar characteristics to Cystic fibrosis. He has been doing so well so far even after his mother rejecting him at first. He is now the heaviest of all of the pups and has such character and is loved by everyone who has met him and seen pictures of him.

Due to the potential ongoing vet cost to give him a happy long life and that there will already be 2 dogs at the home it is looking like there is no other option to let him go to sleep for an eternal nap.

This is not what we want to happen to this lovable little fighter, we want to give him the life he was meant to live and love every chew toy, bone or slipper that he can get his teeth into.

So we ask for your help to #SAVEBOBBY

Here is some more details about the condition.

Anhidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia is an inherited disease known to affect dogs. This disease most commonly presents at birth. Affected dogs are born with symmetrical hairlessness on the forehead and the area over the lower back. Malformed and/or absent teeth (oligodontia) are also a feature of the disorder. Dogs may also have an inability to sweat (anhidrosis) due to missing or abnormal sweat glands. Tear production can be abnormal and dogs often develop dry eye (keratoconjuncitivitis sicca). Affected dogs are more prone to respiratory infections than other dogs and frequently have chronic nasal discharge. Prognosis for survival to adulthood is good. However, affected dogs should be monitored for signs of respiratory infections (cough, rapid or difficult breathing, and exercise intolerance) as they are sometimes fatal.

    Paul now has a new home and has now been renamed as Bobby. He has seen 2 vets 1 advised in short to cross the bridge when or if we get to it. He may get all of the problems, he may not. The second vet seems to have a very different opinion, they are not sure that his condition is what it has been thought. So we are going to be taking Bobby and his brother Thor to see the vet so he can compare the both. More news to come as soon as we have it. Thank you again for all of your support, please continue to share the page. #SaveBaldPaul
