Often times, when a tenant moves out, they may leave behind an old sofa, a stained mattress, a broken refrigerator. Not this tenant. They moved out of their apartment in Orange and left their English Bulldog on the porch.
Bruno is about 9-12 years old and deserves more than what his owner did for a lifelong companion. The Animal Control Officer for the Essex County municipality discovered the abandonment and threatened to issue summonses for their act. It is not known if the threat was intimidating but they said they would take the dog back. Thankfully, they never came or called to attempt to take Bruno back.
The English Bulldog was sent to our Tinton Falls veterinarian, Dr. Emily Marion for this pathetic dog who appeared to have many health issues. After testing, Bruno is suffering from a kidney condition which can be managed …. but not reversed. A special diet and regular visits are what is required in such cases.Bruno also had a case of dry eye which requires lifelong eye medications. A management plan will give him a much better life than when he was left on a front porch. It is difficult to tell on a case to case basis how fast the disease will progress. This mild-mannered man is doing well for a geriatic fella.
Donations help with our continued efforts to help the needy animals that arrive and are always used up quickly. For more information on Bruno, call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
