Donations Urgently Needed: This nice cocker boy needs heartworm treatment to get well before he can be adopted to a forever home. Send to: CCR, P.O. Box 1050, Kannapolis, NC 28081. Thank you for your kindness.
Meet Ferguson, a smaller medium sized reddish blonde cocker spaniel boy about 3 to 4 years old with just a hint of mix. He came to rescue with 2 other cocker boys thought to be his brothers from a local shelter. All 3 of them were together alone and running around loose until they got picked up as strays by NC Animal Control. When no owner came looking for them the staff asked for rescue help when all 3 tested as strong heartworm positive.
In addition to being heartworm positive and needing treatment, our vet found that his needs had sadly been neglected. He came to us badly matted, filthy dirty, with skin issues and an ear infection. He was also covered with ticks and fleas and had hooks and whipworms. These issues have been treated. When we picked him up at the vet, we saw that he was having problems walking. Turns out, he just had a neck issue that needed medicine, now he is ok. A few days later, all 3 boys came down with a respiratory infection that could have come from the shelter. We put them on medicines to get well and they are all feeling better. He will be neutered and have a dental before heartworm treatment is done. It seems that someone must have loved him because all 3 boys are so gentle and loving. He is a sweet boy and dearly craves human attention and love. After his heartworm treatment and recovery time afterwards, he needs to be adopted to a new home with someone who can also adopt Riley, his red n white sidekick brother (see his bio). They are very bonded and need to stay together because Riley has eye issues known as Progressive Retinal Atrophy. They need to be together so that he can be Riley's seeing eye companion because nothing can be done to help his eyes and he will eventually be totally blind. The vet recommended that we adopt Ferguson and Riley out as a pair to make getting a new home an easier transition for Riley. Please donate today to help us get heartworm treatment done. You can send in a donation to: CCR, P.O. Box 1050, Kannapolis, NC 28081. Thank you for your kindness to help us get this cocker boy well.
