Name: Romeo
Sex: Male
Age: Senior

This little senior guy is Romeo and he was found wandering around all alone.  His finder, a very kind man, took Romeo to a local vet to have him scanned for a microchip.  Romeo did have a microchip and his owner was contacted.  When contacted, he said he didn’t want Romeo anymore because he was old.  The kind man who found Romeo took him home with him.  He contacted Russell Rescue for help and when a foster home opened up, Romeo became one of us.  He has been in a foster home for a few months now.  Recently, he got into a fight with another dog in his foster home and ended up getting bit in multiple places.  Romeo needs your help.  Can you help us pay for the medical attention Romeo needed?  As you can see from the photos, he had a horrific cut on his tummy.  We are expecting the vet bill to be around $1000.  Please help us help Romeo!

Update from Romeo’s foster mom:  Romeo had a checkup at the vet.  I was able to get a couple of photos.  You can see the puncture wound in his upper thigh.  There is a corresponding puncture on the other side.  The redness and swelling are going down, which is great news!  Romeo got to spend a little time in the yard, which he loved!  You can see from the photos that the puncture wounds are starting to heal.  Romeo is feeling almost frisky again and is officially the Backyard Jungle King!  He is still limping, and I have to be very careful when I pick him up, as his torso is still very bruised and sore.  He is such a little piglet.  He never loses his appetite!  He says to tell you thank you for your generous donations!
