Sir Fergus Of Bravo

I guess it’s time to formally introduce my newest foster, Sir Fergus Of Bravo.  On 2/28/12  Fergus was found by a nice lady in Oregon after he wandered down her long driveway and tried to cuddle up next to her house.   Can you imagine stepping out of your house and finding this poor lost and sad soul curled up on your porch?

The condition that Fergus was found in.

His kind savior immediately sought medical attention for him by delivering him to Clackmas County Dog Services.  Weighing in at a measly 37 lbs they immediately started IV fluids and medications and most importantly….FOOD!

Amazingly, Fergus didn’t appear to have any long term complications from the starvation.  He ate well and put on weight at a reasonable rate.   His muscles were so atrophied that he had some trouble walking but that didn’t stop him from winning over every one he met.   Fergus continued to recover and by 3/5/12 he weighed in at a whopping 46lbs!   At that time the director reached out to me to see if I would be able to provide a medical foster for him.  I agreed and on 3/16/12 through the help of two transporters Sir Fergus made the trip up to WA and landed with me!

He made the trip like a champ and was checked out by Dr. Evergreen that very day.  He heart and ears were good and he was up to 48lbs!    He found some elbow dysplasia, an eye lid tumor, several nasty teeth that needed to come out and most likely  a partially ruptured disc in his back.   Poor guy.

I took him home and introduced him to the back yard right away.   He marked everything out there and then came in and cuddled up on his nice, comfy new bed from Auntie Rayanne.

Ewww....those mushrooms to help my immune system are gross!
He loves tummy rubs!
Fergus all cleaned up after a bath!
He definitely knows how to work 'the cute'.
Learning how to enjoy a kong stuff with goodies!

Fergus came to me house broken and knowing sit, down, shake with each paw and can catch a treat!   Clearly  he was someones beloved pet that either got dumped or lost.   He was so  very lucky to land in the lives of people who cared and took the time and effort to do something.   Fergus is still gaining weight (he’s at 52lbs!) and getting stronger but will still need some surgery in the near future to complete his journey to full health.

Fergus hard at work behind the desk at EHVC. Working is hard!

    1. It’s a privilege that these lost littles are sent to me. 😀 I’ve got a big soft spot for the lost ones that need some TLC.

  1. OMG!! what a sweetie!! I get so sad when I see dogs in such a bad condition. I’m so glad he found someone who cared enough to get him help. I sure whoever adopts him will gain a loving friend. I’ve always wanted to be a foster mom, but I get attached to animals too easily and I think I’d want to keep them all and I’t would break my heart to see them leave lol. I’m such a softy when it comes to animals 🙂 Your doing a great thing!!!
