(A23321272) Rover: 5yr old, Male, Shih-Tzu.  Between 15-20 lbs.  Came into the shelter as an owner surrender on 07-15-14.  He has been seen by our vet.  His neck is infected, and he was diagnosed as being blind.  He is currently receiving treatment for his neck infection and medicine in his eyes.

Rover's Story:
Rover is a very sweet boy.  He's unfortunately experienced some traumatic events prior to coming to the shelter. 
His human Mom passed away to cancer some months prior, which was very difficult for Rover as they loved each other dearly
and were very close.  Rover's human Dad had been trying to care for Rover to the best of his ability when unfortunately he found out that he has cancer.  After Rover's Dad took him to the groomer and they found his neck to be infected, his Dad was unfortunately unable to provide the needed care for Rover to get well and ultimately decided it would be best for Rover to stay here at the shelter with us. 

Thanks And Have A Blessed Day!
