On Dec. 2, 2011 I was contacted by Karen (Weezer’s Mom) about a Dachshund in Mobile, AL. I contacted the two girls that had hidden Max from the dog catcher and within an hour I had Max in my arms and on the way to the vet. Max had such and infection in his mouth the vet immediately put him on antibiotics. At that time I was told the dental would be $800.00… which I did not have. Even with the antibiotics, I knew I had little time before Max would be in serious trouble.
In about a week Max started having green goop collect in his eyes even with the antibiotics. I had kept Karen in the loop on his status at the same time I was trying to find another place to get his dental done. Finally I found a place that was more affordable and told Karen what they had said. Karen had Bella’s Fund pay for the dental which I knew would save Max’s life. Max had his dental done on the 14th of December and all but four of his teeth were pulled. He also went through two more rounds of antibiotics to help him heal up.
Today he is a very happy toothless wonder. He eats every thing he gets his mouth on, including Milk Bone Dog Bones! A few days after the dental he also got up to date on his shots. Max is mostly blind, but runs all over the yard and even tries to keep up with the rest of the kids. If it had not been for Bella’s Fund, Max would probably not be with us today. As we figure Max is at least 12 years old, helping him live out his golden years is now my goal. I will be forever grateful for the help and support that I received from Bella’s Fund.
