On top of sharing this transport, please also consider donating to and sharing Trooper's Fundraiser Page:



NOTE: 
Any Special Needs: being treated for Sarcoptic mange but is no longer contagious
Crate: Not provided – not recommended – he doesn't like the crate but rides very well – HIGHLY SUGGESTED TO COVER YOUR SEATS WITH BLANKETS/SHEETS – he is starting to slough off the scabby crusty skin now and it will leave a mess.

Per Trooper's Foster Mom this morning (Tuesday):
Trooper is looking soooooo much better already. I am amazed at how fast the skin is being replaced. I will try to post/send some more photos so you can see the difference. I am thinking that if he keeps up this rapid healing the transporters won't need to be much concerned with dead skin flakes. Still sleeping a lot, but I think that is what he needs to do right now.  He is very friendly, no jumping on people. Could care less about toys. Wants to say hello to the other dogs.
