This handsome, sugar-dusted boy is Bo, an 8-year-old Boxer. He’s full of energy, but Bo’s run into some bad luck lately, causing his mom a great deal of heartache and stress.
Bo’s mom is a single parent, who provides the only income for her home. A little while ago mom scraped together the money to get some of Bo’s teeth removed. They had been giving him trouble and Bo originally needed five bad teeth removed.
With the bad teeth out, Bo was back to his spunky self—a little too spunky, unfortunately! Just a month later, Bo was chasing a bunny and got cut on something he ran past. The cut was really deep and Bo lost a lot of blood, which had his mom really worried. She rushed Bo to the vet after hours and got him stitched up and feeling better.
But now, Bo’s mom was facing another hefty vet bill that she just couldn’t cover right away. She then applied to Fur Kids Foundation to help her cover the costs of Bo’s emergency veterinary care.
Now Bo’s back to his overly spunky self – hopefully not getting too distracted by all those pesky little rabbits!
