Hi there. Thought that I would give you some updated info on Joe.
He is doing great and a wounderful addition to our family. We have singled out a few medical problems that he has and is doing great. Those cysts on his foot, well those turned out to be broken procupine quills. They actually festered and pushed out except one that the vet took out. He was having some skin issues and putting on a lot of weight. After a complete check up, he is diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism. That is a big factor on him sleeping so much. So now he will be on meds for the rest of his years and all problems should be taken care of. Small price to pay for such a great guy.
Traveling is not his thing. I can relate, I also get car sick. He is content at home, he knows where he lives and has not left. His friend, our other dog Kaya and him are not often apart and get along well. I have forwarded a picture and will send more when he is 100% again. I have a wounderful vet who is helping us get him back to normal and we are so thankful for him. Thank you again for this light in our home and wish you all at the shelter a Merry Christmas and the best in the New Year! Theresa and Joe
