Can You Help Rocky? Repost from The Daily Boxer.
Rocky has the heart and soul of a champion. All this boxer needs now is for a winning team to step up and give him a second chance at the happy ending that has eluded him the first time around. Do you know anyone that could step up and give him a home?
Rocky has no use of his back legs but does get around well with his wheels.
Rocky is a 2-year-old male boxer that was confiscated by Miami Dade County Animal Services as part of a neglect case. Once he was with the organization, they knew he needed much more help than they could provide and they reached out to Coastal Boxer Rescue to see if the organization could help give him a shot at a better life.
It won’t be easy going for Rocky…at some point he had broken his back. However, his owners let the back heal on it’s own and he has no feeling in his back legs. Right now he’s in boarding at the Coastal Boxer Rescue’s veterinarian and is getting lots of TLC, but needs much more at this point…a loving home environment.
This silly, but sweet dog will need a special rescuer since he’ll be paralyzed for good and will require special treatment and therapy. He loves to use a cart and will need to be carried or wheeled for the rest of his life. Currently, he relies on his front legs to get around and has some atrophy in is left shoulder. He also is not able to roll over and has some sores because of it.
Despite all he’s been through, Rocky is a happy dog. He’s in the care of the Coastal Boxer rescue and their vet.
He has some other special needs including needing to have his bladder manually expressed 4 to 6 times daily and currently has a bladder infection. The Coastal Boxer Rescue has reached out to their network of rescuers and social media for help. Unfortunately, each time someone offers to foster or take him in…they don’t respond back to the rescue.
Although the group is in Florida, they are willing to work on a transport if there is a group that is willing to take in Rocky and give this champion a foster or a forever home and a second chance at a happy ending.
Coastal Boxer Rescue says he’s a really great dog – Do you know someone that could help? If you are willing to help, reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or call 321-259-8492.
